Auf der Seite StarCraft Evolution kann man all jene graphischen Schritte von der ersten Alpha bis zum Release einsehen, die damals StarCraft durchlaufen ist.
Sehr schön sind die einzelnen Entwicklungsschritte zu sehen. Viele Dinge haben sich (zum Glück ) sehr stark geändert. Das Creep zum Beispiel war anfangs recht blaulastig.
Starcraft had a long and exciting history of being developed. It has been delayed many times and could have came out in 1996. What took StarCraft so long to develop into a final product? Here's the Early Alpha story:
As Blizzard finished WarCraft II, it became a remarkable success. Afterwards Blizzard has dedicated itself to be a good company. They have rushed to make StarCraft their new game. It would be basically an improved WarCraft II. But it would have 3 races and it would be totally different, as opposing to WarCraft II with its mirror images. But as they almost finished their StarCraft game, they showed it on an E3 show. During that it was criticized so much, it appeared to look too much like WarCraft II. From then, they totally changed the game engine. We come to that section later. First there are some screenshots of the first version of StarCraft shown to the public: The Early Alpha version.
