The next chapter

Meet a cast of characters including fellow esports pros, international competitors, and StarCraft fans as Bolt tries to find his place within the world of esports in South Korea. Behind the backdrop of esports team houses, PC Bangs, and overseas tournaments, new interactive StarCraft sequences and Glossary/Codex features expand upon the storytelling in this installment of the esports visual novel.

Play like a pro

Don't Forget Our Esports Dream guides players through interactive StarCraft scenes that highlight actual actions players would take when competing. The game also measures APM (actions per minute) similar to StarCraft, so players can see if they can stack up against the best. The experience scales for all skill levels, no previous experience in StarCraft required.

Expanded dialog system

Interact with the cast through the Star Sense dialog system, which allows you to present terms collected through the Codex. Presenting these terms unlocks player motivations and additional story around the world of esports.
