StarCraft News Banner

StarCraft is one of the few games on the market that encourages it’s player base to use its API to create some amazing games, it’s what we talk about the Blizzard Arcade each and every week on the show. With over 1000s of creators and ever more games, it comes at no surprise that one amazing group of creators took it upon themselves to try to create the most amazing Blizzard Arcade game ever, the StarCraft Universe. We have previously talked about this on the show, as well we had a chance to talk with the creators at BlizzCon 2014. This game started out as a MMO, but has turned into a RPG. Basically it’s a mash up between Diablo and World of Warcraft, but with a StarCraft appearance! But don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself! And we will be covering it in our StarCade segments in the next coming week’s so you won’t want to miss the show!
