synSpace: Drone Runners

synSpace: Drone Runners is a fun realtime, online multiplayer, drop-in space battle game for up to 8 players, with a retro look and scripted starmap adventures you can make and share.

They're watching us...

This app connects you to droneNET, a secret galaxy-wide network of remote-controlled, self-replicating, drone spaceships. We don't know who created them, but it wasn't us.

The drones have been replicating out of control, consuming our galaxy for raw materials! We need to thin them out, and destroy the evil ones... before they find Earth!

But you're not alone, there are... others.


* Pick your Star Map. (we'll connect you to other pilots in that Star System)

* Configure your drone. (Design your own appearance and attributes)

* Kick some asteroids. (or each other)


This game is in active development and can probably be influenced by your feedback. Please send ideas and questions to

The game encourages players to create and share 'collectibles' and provides built-in editors for each type. (icon bitmap, and vector drawing, for example)

The game comes with several additional modules, like a music synthesizer and sequencer, that are intended to support map development, but end up being enjoyable mini-games.

Becoming a starmap author requires nothing more than access to a Google Drive, and a willingness to learn. If you're interested in making your own starmaps, please visit our web site to get started. You might look at the source code for the tutorial map to get some ideas.

We hope you enjoy the game, and contribute many small works of art to our collection!
