It's time to give Starbound another look

This is not the same Starbound I remember playing two-plus years ago. Not even close! As of today, Chucklefish's extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game is no longer on Steam Early Access because, well, it's finished. The full release vers...

Starbound exits Steam Early Access on July 22

I played too much Starbound too early, and as we inch closer to the next major update -- the one that'll push it out of Steam Early Access at long last -- that sentiment keeps coming up. A bunch of us want to give the extraterrestrial sandb...

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...

The Pleased Giraffe update brings colonisation to Starbound

Chucklefish’s Starbound has received its latest stable release, adorably titled Pleased Giraffe. The big, major addition in this update is the ability to colonise your worlds. The idea is simple, set up a house on a planet, place a c...

New Starbound update adds pets and teleporters

It seems like these are being pushed out more frequently now. The last stable update to Starbound came out about three months ago, but before that it had been nearly a year. That said, this update seems much less substantial than the last o...

Starbound update includes new race, new combat, new universe

Wow. It has been a long time. I thought that maybe I had missed a stable update somewhere along the line, but by Chucklefish's own admission, this is the first one since last March. To take a step back, development on Starbound is a little...

Starbound's progression will see a complete overhaul

After over 100 hours of play in the beta, it has become clear to me that I play Starbound a bit differently than my peers. We have had a server going for a while, and as I watched my nomadic friends strike out to new sectors and planets, bu...

Chucklefish talks 'finished' Starbound, next game

Starbound developer Chucklefish has spoken about the future of the game and its role as a publisher. For Starbound players, expect tweaks to the way progression is handled and more methods of obtaining pixels, broken down into a sort of tec...

No more character wipes for Starbound starting right now

Earlier this month we heard that the highly anticipated Starbound patch that would eliminate any future character wipes would be coming within about a week. Though it took a bit longer than that, we can all rejoice, because Chucklefish let ...

Get ready to start playing Starbound for keeps

Starbound is fantastic. Its scope is enormous, and it could easily keep players exploring for years to come. At least, it can once progress is no longer reset every few weeks. Thankfully, that date is soon approaching, with a Starbound deve...

Starbound has sold over a million copies

Starbound has surpassed one million sales, developer Chucklefish Games announced today. Not that any of us were doubting the popularity of the sandbox title, but it sure is nice to hear confirmation that things are going well for the team. ...

Impressions: Starbound

Back in 2011, Re-Logic released Terraria, which gained massive popularity for its procedurally generated sandbox gameplay that had combat and objectives for those wanting more than just a place to go and dig. It was a surprise hit for me, a...

Starbound beta takes off with release of new trailer

Last night, on the eve of the Starbound beta's release, the developers at Chucklefish put out a new trailer commemorating the early access of this unique and ambitious title. For the uninitiated, Starbound is a randomly generated 2D action...

The Starbound beta will be broken up into three stages

Chucklefish previously said that the beta for Starbound would arrive this year and with November nearly upon us, we're getting close. We must be! Indeed, the studio is now saying "it's really not very far off now." In a blog post, the three...

 
Starbound release date photo

Starbound will not release this year, but the beta will

Since the announcement of Starbound, developer Chucklefish has been projecting a 2013 release for the ambitious science fiction sandbox. As we are entering the last quarter of the year with no release date set, it has seemed more likely tha...

See 72 of Starbound's worlds in this new teaser

We're almost two-thirds through the year and we still don't have a solid release window for the highly anticipated open-galaxy game Starbound, aside from "2013." Imagine my face if it were to release on December 31st. Still, the team is co...

Chucklefish exploring idea of Starbound on Sony platforms

Development on the open world (open galaxy?) space exploration game Starbound is coming along well, as detailed in the daily updates on the title's development blog. This nugget of news comes not from there, but from the PlayStation c...

Bastion narrator lends his stellar voice to Starbound

After Logan Cunningham poured sweet nectar into our ears as Rucks in Bastion, many wanted his voice in every game. For now, we'll have to settle on just having him narrate Starbound. Here I thought my anticipation for the upcoming sci-fi s...

New Starbound screens show off frozen biome and more

Starbound is driving me crazy. I can't stop thinking about it. I obsessively check the Roadmap to see what new progress has been made in its development. I can't even remember the last time I felt like this about an unreleased game. Fortuna...

Starbound pre-order sales top one million dollars

Less than a month after pre-orders opened for Chucklefish's upcoming sci-fi sandbox Starbound, the developer reports that it has already netted more than one million dollars from over 45,000 pre-sales. In hitting this milestone, the th...

Pre-orders open for Starbound, beta due this year

After recently being reminded by Darren why Starbound is much more than "Terraria in space," I'm inclined to throw money toward the general direction of the game's developers. With the arrival of pre-orders for this sandbox-style 2D ad...

 
Starbound Roadmap photo

Keep up on Starbound's development with the Roadmap

Our coverage of Chucklefish's upcoming space-faring open-world game Starbound has been criminally weak. Aside from some brief mentions here and there when talking about Terraria and Edge of Space, we've been dark on the game over ...
