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 at the E3 expo.


  • Homeworld was originally meant to be a video game adaptation of the cult space opera television show Battlestar Galactica but Relic failed to obtain the rights. The story concept was designed later.
  • In 2000, "Homeworld: Game of the Year Edition" was released, containing the official strategy guide and Soundtrack CD, with the latest patch for the game also included.
  • In 2003 Relic released the source code for Homeworld, which is available on Relic Developers Network webpage.
  • When the source code was released fans created editions for Linux and Mac OS X.
  • Despite it being several years old, the community is still alive, and it's possible to play multi-player games on dedicated servers that is still running ever since.
