Thrusters Engage!Greetings Pilots!Our new logo. It has WINGS MADE OUT OF GUNS!
It's been a long and complicated
interesting road, but Starr Mazer: DSP
is back in action with a new and improved engine, new gameplay mechanics, new pilots, new ship parts, new enemy designs, new bosses and an overflowing trove of things to come!
We've got a new dev team in SubPixel Studios
, a new distribution partner in Digital Tribe
, a new art team in DieMango
, Valery Kim
and new music & sounds from SIXIXIX[soundcloud.com]
, Parker Luis Can't Lose[soundcloud.com]
and Hunter Jacob Pierce[soundcloud.com]
And, of course, Imagos Softworks
is in the pilot seat, pointing at aliens to shoot and space gates to blast through.
Hitting the Ground, Punching the SkyThe ravaged capital city of Thearsa CP-IX has never looked worse better!
We're celebrating our progress with the first
of a series
of regular updates
to the Starr Mazer: DSP Early Access Public Build
We'll be releasing regular updates as progress is made as well as monthly milestone
updates around this time every month until launch.
Each of these updates will bring us closer to release, and you'll get to be a part of the journey along with us, as our Early Access supporters!
We're aiming high with this update, and intend to aim even higher from this point forward. We aim to impress. We may not hit every time, but our guns are hot and we're firing wildly!

The Future is FireLook at all of that FUTURE STUFF FOR FUTURE BUILDS!
By the end of this Early Access period, we will have 9 procedurally assembled stages, each with a boss fight (6 mid-bosses, 3 giant mega-bosses), multiple alien species, thousands of new pilot/ship part/weapon/stat combinations and loads of revamped music/sound.
More than that, though, we will have fought our way through the fire and succeeded against indomitable odds, just as the DSP MkI Pilots of the UNFP.
