    • Ah yes it brings back old memories. Had so much fun. And also got in trouble for failing a subject in college skipping class to play this game at a game shop.

    • Thank you both :)

      This version installs and runs swimmingly on my OS X Sierra laptop. The Windows installer is being a little tricky with Wine on my Gentoo workstation but I'm sure with a little more screwing around it will be just peachy; SC has always had great compatibility for me.

    • Did the actual game is free or you can only download it for free.

      If you still need a key to install it, where is the deal?

      Maybe if your disk is dead?

      I'M on mobile, I can not check for myself.

      Thank you

      Starcraft is being remastered too

      https://starcraft.com/en-us/

      Will be released this summer.
      I might just be getting old, but I honestly don't see that much of a difference between the old and remastered versions.

    • That is a huge difference in image clarity, unless you are running the video in a small window.
