I've been playing it since it's "release" on steam. I gatta say, I'm greatly enjoying my time with it thus far. Yeah, things need to be tweaked and fixed and what-not, but... Beta is beta. As far as stage 1 betas go, I must say it's pretty good. Fairly solid gameplay. Best played with friends. ;)

Might not seem like theres a lot of content right now, but Tiy (dev) is ganna be adding tons more stuff, and providing daily updates, so he promises. Tonight (sunday) he should be releasing a pretty major patch. Well.. Either tonight or tomorrow night. Also, character wipe will be in effect once that patch hits. So, go nuts! If you would like some more intel or have questions, feel free to message me here or on steam.

Been following this game for months now so I was pretty damn stoked when the beta was released. I've been loving every second of my time with it so far. Logged 27 hours on it already, it's that hard to put down. I think I could write a book on the reasons why I love this game, and it's only in early beta.

I'd have to agree.. It's such a charming lil game, with so much to offer. Though, you really gatta enjoy this style of game. I started playing last night with a friend, and I only just now got off of it... Yet, still willing to dive back in. It's a very addictive game.. Be sure you have food and drinks around you, cus you won't be getting up anytime soon. ;P

Kinda interesting though, if you're in a server with friends, but don't group with them.. You can travel the entire game, and never see them once.. Makes me wonder of multiplayer dedicated server potential.. I hear talk of space stations used as hubs that may be implemented in the full release.

I'm currently on top of the fence on either to buy it now or buy it later. This game looks a lot better than Terraria and I played a bit on a friend's computer. The game is fantastic, it was everything I pretty much wanted from Terraria or a sequel. Usually it's better to hold off a purchase till it is out of beta and into a actual release, but I can't help the temptation. I heard the bugs are pretty annoying (obvious since it's beta).

Well, you'll keep the game once it's out of beta, so I'd say that if you liked it enough, you should totally get it now. Hell, you'd be helping the developers by reporting bugs and whatnot, and it is my opinion that actually seeing a game growing, having bugs fixed, and generally getting better with time is really cool.

My copy is downloading as we speak. I had been following the game during development, and I really like the overal design and setting. I mean, their robot race is stuck in medieval times, that is both silly and clever. In any case, looking forward to playing it.

yea considering if one was to make a dedicated server that could house more then 100+ players(if that's even possible)....it could (in theory) become an mmo considering how large the alpha sector alone is you could go the whole game without meeting someone, its interesting to say the least

I don't think you'd get trash for that, Starbound is made by some of the same people who made Terraria. Tiyuri happens to be the artist for Terraria if I'm correct, an he's the lead dev for this game.

I sent you a friend request on steam, let's see if we can set something up. :)

It is great game, from what I have seen and heard, it should cost more than 15$.

But sadly I am way in debt so I cannot afford it..

3 hours in and I already got my first boss kill. It feels so much like terraria, to the point where it's easy to dominate over almost everything.

Starbound is a great game and love it. Have been working with the small modding community that have been formed and worked on a lot of small stuff. Having great feeling we will see something similarity to Minecraft with great modding community in the future.

Respect that. The game is still fare from finnish and you will probably have fun with it, but there is no need for rush :=)

Well, think of it this way... Once you buy it, even in beta, you own it.. So when the game goes full release, you'll still own it.

On a side note, anyone know how many people can be in one server? it'd be cool if we could ALL join in one and go space spelunking!

(with a side of mayhem and carnage that will probably doom us all, and result in "space monster falling from vent, not all of your crew made it back" )
