What happens when you bring a StarCraft fan and a Galaxy Editor together? Well to some, nothing. But to imaginative individuals, it's World of StarCraft.

World of StarCraft? For too long we’ve been dreaming of an MMORPG/World of Warcraft version of StarCraft, but a band of brave individuals out there said “screw dreams” as they pushed the boundaries of fan speculation and imagination by using StarCraft II’s Galaxy Editor to concoct a spin-off unlike any other. Welcome to ‘World of StarCraft’ (note: Blizzard has no part in creating the ‘game’ as it was just created for fun by programming geniuses).

The game looks (in a good sense) horrifyingly real as a Marine-like toon trek the trecherous terrain and go trigger-happy against some Protoss units. Although barely reaching the level of fun and playable by MMORPG standards, ‘World of Starcraft’ remains as an eye-candy to fans and haters alike. We doubt that this would scale up as a game that’s available worldwide. The development team is currently brainstorming on their future plans on the mod and are open to public suggestions through their forums.
