Star Control TimeWarp is an open source clone/sequel to the epic cross-genre game Star Control II. Currently it includes only a combat portion, although there are some plans to expand it to include an epic adventure. The plot of such an adventure would not have anything to do with the name "TimeWarp". Star Control: Timewarp is often affectionately called TW.
TimeWarp is written in portable C++ and is known to compile and run on Linux, Mac OSX and Windows (with the exception that it is still not 64-bit clean as nobody of us has access to such hardware)

Star Control 1 and 2 were created by Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford. Their creative vision shaped the games into something wonderful, perhaps changing the face of gaming in the process. They are the exclusive owners of the franchise, and therefore uniquely positioned to do something neat with it. "Toys For Bob" is the company they have formed; it was also their collective nickname. Previously Toys for Bob have made many commercially successful console and PC games. -- yB!

TimeWarp is developed by a group of Star Control fans. Though the game is quite playable
now, it is far from being complete. The development of this game is still going
on. Please note, that this is a real project, not just a collection of
plans, ideas and dreams like in some other places in the net.
Things may seem to change slow, but there is real progress and every new version
is (we hope ;-) better than previous one. Anyway it is better to have a working
game than lots of ideas, but no code at all. All the work is done in our spare
time, so don't expect that your nice suggestion will be implemented in a short
time. If you are badly missing some feature and think that you can make it
youself, your patch will be welcome (if it does not break all the rest ;-)
You can support the project by participating discussion in TimeWarp forum, where you can post suggestions for future development or just any questions about TimeWarp.
