Man the gaming industry was something else at this time....Genres were being created before our own eyes. RTS, FPS, Turn by turn play, platform, etc. Many of us literally saw those genres get born!

starcraft is probably the best 2d game engine ever made. well u could say war2 was based on war1 which it is,  alot of stuff changed in sc1.

Edit: He did design a new engine. I need that damn beta! starcraft alpha is supposed to have 3 races idk if its true or not. all sprites i found look like 1 race was kinda complete(zerg) and another with 1 or 2 units (protoss) im gonna say it was gonna be a 2 race quick $ back in whenever 96?

StarCraft now has a new engine and it is the beginning of the year 1997. This is a never shown version, and is very different.
The Terran's are still awkward looking. The game interface is no longer WarCraft II. But its different from normal StarCraft. From now on Blizzard focused more on the hardest thing, the game balancing. In this version Carriers are much smaller and Goliaths look very different. The Dragoon was called "Templar". This version was the best StarCraft version, as some say. Goliaths could use machine gun and flame-thrower and missiles on ground targets! And Transports landed to pick up units. Units no longer just disappeared and appeared when coming in and out of Transport. But it was all still very Alpha.

This has actually been known for a very long time now, alpha and beta images of StarCraft can be found if you use Google correctly.

At one point in time it was located here:  http://starcraft.7x.ru/?p=files  I'll poke around and see if it's still around.  Mmm,  I guess its just the beta that was there.  It's around somewhere.  IDK why anyone would want it though, it was terrible lol.  Even uglier than War2.  It had stupid names like "Orcs go purple" and "Orcs in Space".  It was pretty much an embarrassment to blizzard in 1996.  There have been TC's that were better than the SC Alpha.

Blizzard was against orcs in space hahahahahahaha!!!
Dude I bet people would play it because war2 engine. At least I would or true fans hahaha.

I'm sure it could not be more embarrassing  then asking their grandma for 10,000 and getting blizzard off the ground.
