Have you not played the Cult Classic DarkStar yet? Have you been waiting for the price to come down? Well wait no more. You can now get DarkStar directly from the developer, J. Allen Williams, for a mere $7.95. No..that is not $7.95 for a measly download, No Way,...that is $7.95 for an actual, real honest to goodness 2 DVD disk boxed game release to add to your collection.

But GreyFuss, I have already played DarkStar or first person perspective games aren’t my style. Then what you may want to look at is, DarkStar: The Motion Picture available for $7.95 also. This is a full length, 90 minute, Motion Picture created and edited from the hours of cut scenes from the game and edited into a Hollywood production. This is not a video walkthrough of the game like seen on Youtube but a real movie. Check it out.

There are also many other items all reduced to below cost at the DarkStar Store. T Shirts, memorabilia, signed photos etc.

Wont you help out one of the most passionate and charismatic Indie developers who endured lies and broken promises in his 10 year quest to complete this very large and ambitious project. He knows he is not going to make any profit from what the game cost him to develop and he really isn’t that interested in it. What he is interested in is reducing the stock he has by offering them to you for less than it cost to make.

Fantastic

I just received my DarkStar, Limited Edition, signed, Black Box and I love it. Especially the signed 8x10 glossy’s of the cast. Mmmmm Beez McKeever. hearts Very professionally done, I am impressed. I also love the full Soundtrack.

A couple of things I would like to point out for those who have ordered the Black Box or are thinking about ordering...the 2 Cd Soundtrack set is located inside the German Edition of DarkStar. The Disks are in English.

It should also be noted that the German Version: Lace Mamba Global only produced the packaging and booklet of the German version of DarkStar in German. The game itself is in English with no subtitles. So you really have 2 copies of the game inside the Black Box.

I can only imagine how much DarkStar could have generated with all these goodies if Kickstarter would have been around back then.

That is a nice deal.

For that price, it is a no-brainer purchase just to keep it for a collection.

Winfrey,
What I see is the movie and the game for $7.95 and the "Black Box" edition for $49.95.

The name of the game is "Darkstar: The Interactive Movie." This is NOT the movie.

The name of the movie is "Darkstar: The Motion Picture."

Greyfuss, this game looks great. I would love to get it. Are there English subtitles on the English version of the game?

I looked at the YouTube trailer and the actor's voice seemed to dip at times. I found it a little difficult to hear fully what was said. Probably me. Hearing is becoming problematic sometimes.

Sharon

I just ordered the game. happydance

Excellent thumbsup

I Installed DarkStar to see if I could answer your question about subtitles. Since I don't use them I wasn't sure. I didn't see anything about subtitles in the Setup of the game but you can adjust the sound for Dialog, Music and Special Effects. Hope this helps. I don't recall having any problems with the dialog dipping when I played the game.

Shipping costs are kind of high and I already own the game but hey, a 100 only signed and numbered limited edition is totally worth it. Ordered.


I'll be back, one day, when I feel like it.

Got mine today (it was intercepted by customs and I had to pay extra VAT & stuff smirk )
It sure is a nice package! A bit scratched and dented from handling by customs (I don't think they understand the concept of limited collector's edition) but at least they didn't open the sealed envelopes, just the big black box itself.

It is numbered 35/100 so there should still be a few left for eager collectors. smile
