This Fall Stardock began a major overhaul across the board of its community infrastructure.

The first update was of our customization site ( to greatly speed it up.

The next update was to speed up our forums across all the Stardock community sites.

This past week, we launched the third major update: Forum community awards.  You will notice on people's posts that there are various little dots and awards by their names.  We...

Occam’s Razor:

Option 1: Our award-winning real-time strategy game is the worst game released in 2016.




Option 2: The person who has me blocked on Twitter and gave our last game a 4 may have some objectivity issues…

Last year we released zilch.  No new games, no new apps.  It was a year of building. 

This year, things start to get interesting.

Let’s take a look at just this Winter:

February: Offworld Trading Company goes into Early Access

March: Sorcerer King is scheduled for release

April: Galactic Civilizations III is scheduled for release

And we still have two more games that are unannounced that are going to be shown at GDC.

Hi team! Here are some of the pics.  I think Bruce or someone might have a lot more pics, these are some of the ones I got.

First off, I apologize for not getting more. I’m not a good photographer. If any of you (Stardockians) want to send me photos to put up, go ahead and I’ll update.

GalCiv III team! Well, some of them anyway.

Future developer! (or artist!)

This picture makes me feel 20 years older.  I’ve known the little ones parents since they ...

I bring you fear, death, pestilence and candy. Virtual candy anyway!

Just some highlights of today’s Halloween at Stardock:


Our lead 3D programmer on Sorcerer King dresses up like Tandis for Halloween! The lead designer of the Sorcerer King website is a fierce warrior! The man in charge, Derek “Kael” Paxton is a great buddy! GalCiv III lead designer, Paul “Mormegil” Boyer is a smooth operator. My son…is…I’m not sure. He made this and it’s s...

I haven’t done one of these in a while but holy cow so many cool things going on with so many things being announced so recently that I think we owe it to you guys to share what’s happening here.

So as some of you know, Stardock’s an “indie” in the sense that it’s still owned and run by its founder (me). So there is no question whatsoever who I am responsible to: My coworkers and you.  I don’t have stock holders to please and that lets us do lots...

Today is the 20th anniversary of Stardock’s incorporation.

Having my own company was never my intention. It sort of just happened. What started in my dorm room has, over the past 20 years, expanded into an exciting but sometimes maddening adventure.

Twenty years ago I was a college student at Western Michigan University studying to become an electrical engineer. My mom and I had moved to Michigan when I was four years old, and she had taught me the importance of working and saving fr...

It can be quite a challenge to work at the same place for 20 years. I think that’s doubly true if you’ve never worked anywhere else.

That said, looking back, I haven’t really worked at the same place for 20 years. I’ve actually worked at 5 places, all called Stardock and all very different.
