Starglow Games' Starshine EX
9:00 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story

Starglow games, a Scandinavian Gaming Company, has announced their first release, Starshine EX, a Sci-Fi adventure game set in a future where cellphones and SETI transmissions have attracted destructive aliens called the Ta'gyoud. This Mac-only game will be completed sometime next year. Here is a description of this title:

Man had been spurting radio waves and other transmissions into outer space for decades, but the overwhelming success of mobile telephones in Europe and Japan was what did the trick. An alien race called the Ta'gyoud picked up the cacophony of phone calls and SETI transmissions, and sent a fleet to conquer this rather interesting planet, which was located in a previously very uninteresting corner of the galaxy.


In a matter of seconds, most of Earth's largest cities were in ruins, crushed into piles of rock and metal, and millions - no - billions had died. In an instant, Earth was at war with an unknown enemy.

While there is no detail on what specific type of game this is, Real Time Strategy seems to be the best bet. Starglow should be releasing Starshine EX sometime in 2001.
