Coming to PS4, X1 and a Vita (Vita could be a maybe since they haven't said more on that). I don't know when it is, could be before the end of this year or start of next. . 

It certainly looks interesting so I'll be keeping my eye on it. The only thing that bothers me is the fact it's 2D and I always swore I wouldn't buy any more 2D games. At the end of the day though, the graphics are not what interests me, it's the gameplay is that interests me.

Would've been great if I discovered the game now. I'd probably be extremely interested in it. Instead I was fooled by the PR-bullshit and bought the game 3 years ago. Completely burned out, zero interest in whatever Starbound becomes. Its dead to me, and I'm never supporting early access ever again (due to Starbound, Stonehearth and Towns all being massive production failures)

Such a shame..

Well, the game is finished at 1.0, so it does have bosses and an end. So if you ever want to see the finished product, it's there~

I'd like to see what other cool things you've made and seen during your adventures

Ok ill play along and post a few pics of things that caught my eyes.

The liquid physics in this game are quite robust (ignoring that all liquids behave like water). So you can do interesting things like this:

There is no gimmick or special trick to it. The cave is completely exposed to the water, but it wont flood. Just dont mine the background... This can help you expand your beach house with an evil lair including a world dominating submarine. Theres no submarines in the game yet though, so you'll have to do with one of those hoverbike things. They can work underwater.

Oh man, that is pretty cool. I bet a cool base could be made from the bottom of the island. It would def make a cool underwater base, and I wish I had done that... I guess I can just make an underground tunnel to the bottom of my island. Cool find indeed.


I know there is a mod that adds submarines, so it could be possible to do in the game currently~

If you're ever curious to see and here more about the game, well, you're free to come glance by here anytime! I'll try to continue to post shots from my sessions on here. Hopefully by the time console versions release, there will be even more content to experience in the game. I know finish is coming soon to the game as an added feature.

Are we all shy that we dont have a super amazing thing to show? Not me. But instead of something amazing I'll show everyone a couple of things I found useful in the early game.

Here is my ship:

Look at that efficient use of space . Nothing big but I think it pays up big time to have all the most advanced crafting stuff in there. Not just because is right there for when you visit new planets but everything inside the ship stays even if you change servers or play in the single player. This way if the servers closes, resets or have troll players you still got the important stuff on the ship and you keep your inventory unfilled.

 

About cotton:

It is weird in that cotton is easy to find but tricky to get in enough quantities. This is definitelly something you want to farm (as in cultivate). And you should do it from the very begining as you'll want to make that teddy bear as soon as posible, trust me.

I ended up using my ship for the time being the same way you have lol.

I'll have to cap me some screens but recently I've been getting back into WoW with some friends and I've had some catching up to do.

I'm still posting! I'm just afraid I'm posting too many screen shots now, and I still want to keep some parts as secrets for possible new players.

It is definitely a good idea to make your central base on the ship as opposed to a planet. I had it where I played on one file with a friend, and when he added mods to his game, he had to delete his file, and I lost all my gear in the home we made. I would have been better off having everything on my ship. It's okay though, I can just collect everything again, but still a nice tip for players. I'm gonna do it once I can make lunar items.

 

Also, totally agree on getting cotton and seeds ASAP. It's a really important early game item.

After looking at the screenshots you guys have posted this game looks really interesting. I thought i wouldnt be too gone on the 2D side view at first, however now i can see thats what adds to this games style in the first place.

I've heard some people raise issues with the game being 2D, and I can see that coming from a big game like No Man's Sky, but I don't think it takes away anything from it. There are still secrets and treasures to find, and it makes it easier to fully explore the surface of planets and take everything you can find. Then there's also digging down below to find dungeons. mini biomes and more treasures. I suppose it is pretty similar to Terraria, though I haven't played much of that game. If you liked that game, chances are you'd like Starbound too.

I've thought the same myself. I loved Minecraft the first time I laid eyes on it years ago. I thought it was something neat and interesting and not once did I go "man the graphics suck why isn't this like AAA games visual wise?". I like that Starbound is a 2D pixel version of Minecraft/Terraria, it being in 3D would have made it look more like Minecraft and we've all seen that song and dance played by a good numebr that tried to emulate MC's success and looks.
