[edit] Background

[edit] 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."


[edit] Game Play

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.

[edit] Features

  • Procedurally generated worlds, a whole universe to explore
  • Each world has its own unique co-ordinates, share what you've found
  • Lay claim to a planet, populating it with NPCs and alter the very weather and terraform it to your liking
  • Features quests and story driven missions
  • Fully Co-Op, band together and explore the universe
  • Keep track of everything in an electronic logbook
  • Factory - To create mechs (and maybe more?)
  • Labs - To study and train captured creatures
  • Scan objects and find special qualities
