Starbow is a fan-created map for StarCraft II, incorporating elements of both StarCraft II and StarCraft: Brood War.


Starbow differs from StarCraft II in the following ways:

  • Units are more spread out and move at separate movements speeds.
  • Extraction of resources is slower, and resource patches are fewer. This is to encourage establishing outposts.[1]


Development on Starbow began in 2011 by Björn “Kabel” Lindgren. Disatisfied with StarCraft II, Lindgren identified why he enjoyed Brood War more. He identified these elements as speed, multi-tasking, and decision-making.[1] Development lasted two years. It was released to public scrutiny in January, 2012.[2]

Starbow launched on Team Liquid, and found Reddit and Twitter followings.[1]
