Video: Why you should be paying attention to Starbound

A quick look at the procedurally generated marvel.

It's getting harder and harder to keep on top of all the games hitting early access, but there are some that really stand out. Starbound, for instance, has struck a nerve for anyone jonesing for some procedurally generated 2D thrills. Terraria in space is one way of putting it, but anyone more eloquent than me would likely be able to sell it to you a little more gracefully.

Which is where Christian Donlan and Ian Higton come in, thankfully. They've prepared a brief video run-through of Starbound, telling you why it's worth paying attention to UK studio Chucklefish's indie smash. Enjoy!
