Starbound

So, along with S2 I've bought a pre-order copy of Starbound for £10 which gives you access to the beta and the entire soundtrack.

That looks rather good. May purchase it. Hoping that it lives up to the hype of the first video.

It's by the guy who did the graphics for Terrinia. Think the Terrania updates stopped because he quit to make his one.

Does anyone else prefer Terraria's visuals?

I became briefly obsessed with Terraria a few weeks ago, played it for around 20 hours in total, got to Hell and made the best easy-mode sword (the one that requires four other swords as ingredients), and then stopped completely. I'm interested to know what this is going to do that actually improves on the game, as it looks almost exactly the same from those two videos, just with a marginally better interface and more options in the procedural generation.

I'm pretty sure his wife had a baby so he took the year off. They've been working on this since he started again, but there's a new Terraria update for PC in the works too.

They will be adding quests, story based missions and dungeons so it will have more of an rpg type feel than Terraria did.

New preview.

I like the idea of how easy it is to add objects to the game, but it all sounds so ambitious. With the story stuff not going in at beta I worry that once the game does go into beta that they will get bogged down with fixing things and never get round to adding all the story stuff.

A couple of new videos. One of the grappling hook in action and the other is one and a half hours of pvp gameplay.

Aaaand resurrect this thread.

The beta for this launches this week on the 4th December. I have been following the development and think this will be a whole lot of fun.

Roll on the 4th.
