    Starbound: Now on Steam!

    Starbound is now available on steam! It's resembles Terraria a fair bit (made by a number of the Terraria devs) but it's more 'sci-fi' themed. You have your own space ship, and you can hop between worlds! It also has what Terraria lacked, a tutorial! I've played it for a few hours and it's been good fun. It's beta and the devs say expect updates and new features thick n' fast!

    If you play multiplayer, be sure to get in a group and beam up to a friends ship and steal their lighting and doors! And fill their space ship up with dirt blocks too!

    Oooh I like the look of this... also, you can get it at a slight discount and donate to charity by buying it from the Humble Store: https://www.humblebundle.com/store

    EDIT: looks like the discount is gone, works out about the same price now but at least you can justify the purchase by knowing some of it goes to charity

    As the devs have said, don;t get too attached to worlds and chars as ongoing updates and improvements may result in needing to wipe and start from scratch.

    I picked a copy up. Looks like it could be a Terraria 2.0?

    Spent ages jsut looking for iron ore though and currently trying to build the distress beacon.

    On that mission myself but not done it yet. Tucker tried it solo, he said a spaceship landed with loads of robots and they essentially bent him over backwards!

    A spaceship hovers about, dropping penguins with rocket launchers. if you hide underground it rams the ground and breaks it up above you.

    The annoying part is once you use the beacon it destroys it. so if you die ten seconds later you need to craft another beacon....so get plenty of silver ready to keep doing it!

    yeah. i went digging last night, got down to the lava....around there you can get a lot more iron/silver. and don't do what dippy mcguigan did and summon the spaceship around his home!
