While most game developers tend to stick to developing games, the people at Stardock have been working with a wider scope of products in mind. Stardock has made a name for itself in the gaming industry primarily with Sins of a Solar Empire, an RTS franchise set in space that serves as a benchmark for its genre. On top of working with games, the company has also been working with “WindowBlinds” for some time–a program for Windows that let users their window frames, buttons, and more.
Recently, Stardock released WindowBlinds 10 – an iteration of the software that brings full integration into the Windows 10 operating system. The company stated with this release:
We know our customers have been waiting for our products to integrate with Windows 10, and we are happy to do that with WindowBlinds while we continue to do the same for our other applications.
For users that feel like they want to be able to take hold of the intricacies of their Windows experience, WindowBlinds 10 will provide a worthwhile option that creates serious opportunities for customization. Beyond being able to individually customize elements of the Windows 10 user experience, WindowsBlinds 10 users will be able to apply some skins that will completely overhaul things, including “Ice,” “Eva,” and “The Captain.”
While WindowsBlinds 10 is offering to Windows 10 users a fairly appealing opportunity to customize their experience, it is, in fact, a premium one. If you want to get WindowsBlinds 10 you’re going to have to drop $10 to pick up the license for it (though you can get a 30 day free trial to see if you’re really interested enough to drop the money). If you already had a version of WindowsBlinds, you can upgrade to WindowsBlinds 10 for $5–which sounds like it should be a fair deal for anyone invested enough in WindowsBlinds to have already purchased it.
