Star-Twine is an abstract real-time strategy game in which you control a point of light created by a dying star. Battles unfold on sprawling three-dimensional maps as you collect energy and build structures to attack your opponent. Chill out to the atmospheric visuals and soundtrack as you plan your next move.

Star-Twine is a game of positioning and timing. Energy Nodes are used to collect resources, Turrets fire at the enemy, Black Holes absorb nearby projectiles, Sentinels stake out territory and Missile Launchers deal massive damage to an area. Through building these simple structures, many different strategies emerge.

Star-Twine includes a single player campaign, skirmish mode, and multiplayer (Note that the standalone itch.io version no longer supports online matchmaking, but continues to support Direct IP and LAN play -- For online matchmaking, Steam is required).
