About Stardock

We're a software development company that has been around since 1991 and officially became "Stardock Systems" in 1993. Our journey began developing for the OS/2 platform, but we had to switch to Windows® when the OS/2 software market collapsed between 1997 and 1998. You might know us for our awesome computer programs like Fences®, Start11™ or WindowBlinds™ that help you modify or extend your graphical user interface, as well as some pretty cool strategy games like Galactic Civilizations®, Sins of a Solar Empire®, Fallen Enchantress™ and more!
