So I thought I would give Starbound a proper shot now it is finally out and I have to say that it is much improved from when I last played it. They have made a bunch of improvements such as adding NPCs to the world, putting more stuff on a planet to find and improving the combat so it doesn't feel as if you are getting as swamped from the start.
I really like the survival mechanics they have put in meaning you have to eat in order to keep hunger at bay which means hunting has more of a role as does the farming. The amount of things you can craft for your buildings as well has been greatly increased, so you can build much more interesting stuff. Finally layering a proper story and quest system over the top of everything has brought it all together nicely.
I think that with all this stuff they have put in, along with the many things I have yet to even explore, like creature collecting, this is now a step forward from Terraria where before it just felt like a pale imitation.
