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 continuing to provide daily updates on the Starbound development blog, and a post from a few days ago features an impressive video showing off some of the different environments that players may encounter. Personally, I’m curious if there is going to be some sort of narrative explanation behind a planet that is apparently lined with gigantic human brains. Were they always there? Did we put them there because we’re pretty pleased with ourselves? Do they serve as evidence that humans descended from extraterrestrial ancestors? Or did the background artist just think a planet of brains would look cool? (I really hope it’s not the latter.)
