    Starbound is the next potential successor to Terraria developed by some of the original dev team (Not Redigit) and artists.

    Set some time in the dim and distant future, players will have to build and maintain their own space station as they set out finding new worlds to explore, colonise and pillage for resources.

    Looks a lot of fun, especially with buildable mechsuits. Latest RPS look here.

    Now available for pre-order:

    http://www.playstarbound.com/store/

    Pre-ordering will give you access to the Beta when it's available (sometime this year).

    It's due out on PC, Mac and Linux.

    Any help finding some wooden planks to make my crafting table? I seem to be on a planet where the trees are made of metal... :-S

    Er, yeah, I'd like to know this too.

    Game seems very impressive so far but it has the same problem as Terraria: you get dropped into a deceptively complex game with very little guidance.

    Make a crafting table, it says. Alright, great, but where and how?

    You craft wooden planks from wood in the crafting menu, from that you make a wooden table. Once you ha e a wooden table you interact with it using the e key to make other stuff. I love this game so far, already have a sizable base.

    How "Early Access" is it? Lots of missing stuff etc?

    Yeah, same as Terraria, trouble is you can start off by being dropped into a biome with no wood. I've walked around for a while and still haven't found any, and my health is almost all gone. But without wood I can't do anything about that, it seems.

    Played an hour or so this morning. I found the gathering a bit slow but that will get better over time when I get a better gathering device thingy. I also have a issue with the ui and controls. IT looks like I can assign items to left and right mouse buttons but it doesn't work...well it doesn't work for me

    @PearOfAnguish Glad I'm not the only one struggling with this :) I did a load of Googling yesterday to try and figure out what the heck is going on and have come to the conclusion you are royally screwed if your game starts in a biome without wooden trees!

    Really, I know it's beta but if this is the case it's incredibly poor design.

    Is there a way to place a single block, rather than four at once? Unnecessarily uses up your reserves of materials otherwise.

    Starbound is currently very early beta so yes, loads is missing and broken. Unless you like beta testing software I'd avoid it for now and wait a few months to see if they manage to make a decent game out of it - stick to Terraria if you just want to play a bloody excellent game of this type right now. :)

    I like the look of this but I adore that music from the giant bomb quick look! I might have to try just get that for now until I have the pennies for the game!

    I couldn't resist buying about an hour ago. Seeing a few people here wanting it, I went for the four-pack, and I get US$ prices, so it's a bit cheaper. If anyone wants it gifting to them through Steam for 7, let me know.

    Otherwise I'll enjoy playing it on four PCs simultaneously. :p

    I'm absolutely loving this game, took a while to click as the crafting is quite different to Terraria. Also, I thought the only way to heal was to sleep! I found bandages in the crafting menu now, just 7 plant matter each, has made spelunking much easier.

    To people that start with metal forests, just mine coal. You can use it for spaceship fuel to travel to another planet.

    I have a hunting knife and shield now, easily my favorite combination for exploring the surface of worlds. I've also found the merchant who sells all sorts of stims.

    OMG The first boss is fricking hard, it took me a whole day to beat it! :D All I can say is thank God for Snow Infantry Armour! Which, btw, is way too overpowered, I have a feeling it'll be nerfed soon. It's actually easier to make Snow Armour than Silver Armour and not only that, it's actually way better.

    First boss is ridiculous! I was following the tutorial quests expecting it to be easy and I didn't stand a chance so I just abandoned that planet and my outpost and started up somewhere new.

    Banana bread is fantastic, full hunger and full health. My spawn point on the planet is just a banana and wheat farm with all my crafting stuff in my ship for a quick getaway. Really enjoying it though, just a shame that so far it feels very familiar to Terraria, I almost wish they would get rid of mining and woodcutting just to make it a bit different.
