StarCraft is a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Blizzard Entertainment's use of three distinct races in StarCraft is widely credited with revolutionizing the real-time strategy genre.

Set in a fictitious timeline during the Earth's 25th century, the game revolves around three species fighting for dominance in a distant part of the Milky Way galaxy known as the Koprulu Sector: the Terrans, humans exiled from Earth skilled at adapting to any situation; the Zerg, a race of insectoid aliens in pursuit of genetic perfection, obsessed with assimilating other races; and the Protoss, a humanoid species with advanced technology and psionic abilities, attempting to preserve their civilization and strict philosophical way of living from the Zerg.

Brood War is an expansion pack for StarCraft, introducing new campaigns, map tilesets, music, extra units for each race, and upgrade advancements. The campaigns continue the story from where the original StarCraft ended.

In 2002, Blizzard released updates with Carbonized versions of StarCraft and the Brood War expansion for Mac OS X users.

After the PC and Macintosh releases, it was also published for the Nintendo 64 console as "Starcraft 64", including the BroodWar Extension and a bonus map named "Ressurection IV". This bonus map was later re-done by Fans for the PC and Mac version (Information, Download).

Is it just me, or should this page and the "starcraft for classic" be merged into one? They have the majority of the same downloads. It's a bit redundant.

In fact, when you download the PC game, you've got actually the Mac PPC & PC Installer both with the data files. It's possible that Blizzard will replace the PPC installer by an only compatible Yosemite & El Capitan Mac installer in the next future... It's already true for Diablo II & WarCraft III.
