Homeworld was the first game in the Homeworld series of the same name. Released in 1999, the game quickly became a surprising success, taking the Game of the Year award from IGN and Game Critics Award on E3 expo. Since then the game has been the only of its kind (a 3D real-time strategy game) to be highly successful.
