A story within a sandbox"Starbound begins with you fleeing your homeworld in a space shuttle, just as it’s destroyed by an unknown enemy. With nothing to guide it, the escape pod shoots into space without direction, becoming hopelessly lost in a sea of stars. As luck would have it, the space shuttle makes contact with an abandoned space station and an adventure begins that will take you hurtling across the universe."
Once on the space station, you'll have to fix it up, get a crew, and conduct research to increase your ability to explore the furthest reaches of the universe in retro side-scrolling fashion.
