Starcraft is a classic real time strategy game focused on building a base and defeating an opponent by creating attacking forces. It relies on quick actions and well planned strategy. Three playable races include the Terran, Zerg, and Protoss.
The first game of the StarCraft series was developed by Blizzard Entertainment and released for Microsoft Windows on 31 March 1998. It became the best-selling PC game for that year, selling over 1.5 million copies worldwide and in the next decade, StarCraft sold over 9.5 million copies across the globe.
Set in the 26th century, the game revolves around three species fighting for dominance in a distant part of the Milky Way galaxy: the Terrans, humans exiled from Earth skilled at adapting to any situation; the Zerg, a race of insectoid aliens in pursuit of genetic perfection obsessed with assimilating other races; and the Protoss, a humanoid species with advanced technology and psionic abilities, attempting to preserve their civilization and strict philosophical way of living from the Zerg.
