Starbound has been in the making for a long 5 years and we at GamerDating backed the early announcement and followed its early access releases in waves. Starbound is a 2D action, adventure, sandbox builder. Similar to Terarria and even named as it's spiritual sucessor. Starbound has come from an almost carbon copy to a self standing title. 

The latest version, the launch, the big version 1.0 introduces, stories, improved planet generation and biomes, quests, dungeons, crew members, mercenaries, crafting, pets, augments and ship upgrades. Of course if you are a long time follower they assure us they've improved Multiplayer, bugs, added polish and made Starbound 1.0 a game that can proudly stand on it's own two feet.

Starbound is officially available now via SteamHumble anGOG!

You start the game where you have fled your home, only to find yourself lost in space with a damaged ship. Your only option is to beam down to the planet below and gather the resources you need to repair your ship. As you do so the game evolves through story, playstyle and your own adventures. Soon you'll be travelling through the planet, through space, through the universe. 

Check out the beautiful launch trailer below:

You may choose to save the universe from the forces that destroyed your home, uncovering greater galactic mysteries in the process, or you may wish to forego a heroic journey entirely in favor of colonizing uncharted planets. Settle down and farm the land, become an intergalactic landlord, hop from planet to planet collecting rare creatures, or delve into dangerous dungeons and lay claim to extraordinary treasures.Discover ancient temples and modern metropolises, trees with eyes and mischievous penguins. Make use of hundreds of materials and over two thousand objects to build a sleepy secluded cabin in the woods, a medieval castle, or an underwater arcade.
