Starbound- major update
Posted: Posted August 27th, 2015 by Moonray



The last update added a much smoother system for progressing through gear, bosses, etc and added new quests & bosses. This one has finally added colonies (which was planned from the start) and a load more new stuff plus reworked stuff. It's also still early access/beta so there'll be more to come.

The game is finally at a point where I feel I can recommend it to anyone who enjoys Terraria and/or exploration games.

It's also 15% off on Steam right now (41 hours remain).

Unsure, I hadn't been paying attention to Starbound since the last stable release and then steam did an update to it so I was like "Wonder what that was".

Wait, what is this? It looks like terraria in space.

It looks pretty cool! Do you get to go to other planets? How does it differ from terraria?

Yea you HAVE to go to other planets to get different types of ore as part of the gear progression. There's more of a focus on exploration too, although I'd like to see more variation in what, you find (I'm noticing new stuff on the update so I think they've added more stuff).

It's also a huge galaxy.

I'm not sure I could really explain the differences as a lot of it is just subtly differently, or things like the space/exploration are obvious at first glance.

lol. Those bone covered planets could use some undead type aliens and a creepier atmosphere tbh.
