In the works at Chucklefish, Starbound is a procedurally generated action adventure game in vein of Terraria which begins with you fleeing your homeworld in a space shuttle, just as it is 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. Starbound contains both quests and story driven missions, buried inside its vast sandbox universe. You will need to find a crew, conduct research, catch rare creatures, and unlock its multitude of facilities. From a factory capable of producing mechs to labs where captured enemies can be studied and trained, the space station contains everything you need to explore the universe.
A video showing off a range of forests that can be generated with just a small selection of the art is now locally mirrored.
