    The Starbound Thread - This is not Terraria




    It's a thing that's going into beta later this year. A few friends and I are supporting it. Looks cool.



    Stay up to date, nerds:

    What can you tell me about it? That single image evokes thoughts of Scribblenauts and space marines.

    Victor you're so newb! The community manager for the project is Mollygos so it must be cool.

    Shit, really? Didn't know that.

    @ZP: It's a game about exploration. It's procedurally generated, there are many races to choose from and it looks pretty neat. These links can give you a better explanation:

    It probably will have quite a few things in common with Terraria. I'm quite interested in it though.

    It will. A lot. It looks like it's Terraria turned up to eleven.

    I already pre-ordered my copy. I cannot wait for it to come out. It is my #1 most anticipated game of 2013.

    Yo dawgs. I heard this game was Terraria. But in space.

    Seconded! I just hope it lives up to my expectations. They seem pretty well-versed in the programming side, and the artists are pretty awesome.

    That said, I can't wait to spend 300 hours on this game.

    Since I preordered this, I got the soundtrack. I unzipped it at home into my music folder and my Google Music auto-uploaded it. Listening to it now. It's good, but not spectacular just yet. I may need to play the game to associate certain songs with certain areas/feelings.

    All right, finished the standard soundtrack and now I'm listening to the "experimental" stuff that came with it, and this music is much more interesting. I'm jammin'.

    The pre-orders for this game have broken $1.1 million. No new stretch goal has been posted. I wonder if they're done with stretch goals or if they just need to think of another one.

    Yeah, if I had still been in Leicester I was going to try to go along to that.

    Well, they said there'd be a Beta this year. Zarquon said he'd be back. All's well that ends well.

    Man, this looks amazing! I want a mod pack that combines this with FTL. In fact, I think I might just pick up this game and alt-tab between the two and pretend!

    I want to get this game so bad, but was kind of burnt out on the last early access game I bought. (Mercenary Kings)

    I've been reading over the bugs issues and other stuff in the community hub on steam, and man, it still looks like a ton of fun despite the infancy of the public version. Anyone else want to get it and try out multiplayer?
