No, Really, What Is Starvoid?

That looks real-time enough to me.

Paradox’s games don’t exactly all leap out and explain themselves the moment you glance at a statistic-framed map screen, but even among their current line-up Starvoid is looking a little obscure. Which is odd, because it’s actually fairly straightforward: it’s an RTS. But it’s not a classic base-builder, no sir, in fact it’s something a bit more akin to classic multiplayer deathmatch modes. Leap in and just start fighting other players. No building, no resource wars, just a bunch of units and blowing each other up. It is, in fact, “mostly about the fun!” says the design director. Tsk. Strategy players don’t want fun, they want clicks, and reasons to frown for extend periods of time.

For purposes of answering the question “what is Starvoid?” you can watch the devs explain themselves – and Starvoid – below. I mean they sort of explain it… don’t they? Okay, no, I still have no idea. Sorry! The game arrives next week, apparently.
