Long answer: Go read the links the Starbound General >>>/vg/sbg and check out the trainwreck in retrospect. It's actually kind of amusing to someone like me who pirated to give the early betas a try but was never dumb enough to drop money on it. It's actually kind of funny that it never comes up on /v/ more often because it's an amazing example of early access devs shitting on their customers.
>>265885592 Starbound had sold more than a million copies by the first month of this year. For all that money, I could make a great game out of Starbound by my fucking self. Abandonment would be totally inexcusable.
>>265886038 I think it's more a problem with early access than indies. Lots of games die early in development that we never even hear about. Now we buy games in these very early stages, and that money keeps them on life support a bit longer, but ultimately they still end up being unfinished garbage.
Every update had key features that were radically different, because it's in alpha. Players got tired of having to start over every two weeks, so they just went straight to just nightly builds to speed up the alpha process.
They add content or tweak mechanics every couple of days. Some of their stuff is hella cool - upgradable matter manipulator that doesn't suck, a new race of space cowboys that fly spacetrains, upgradable ship, a slightly less strictly linear tech progression, etc.
They want to release a 1.0 build in the near future, actually, and have outlined their goals and to-do list on a blog post a few days ago.
It's an ok game, although I'll admit I'm more than a little annoyed at how little the devs actually seem to do. I can't fathom how they make posts about doing shit every day but none of it ever seems to amount to anything in the game.
That said I doubt it can ever live up to the hype it had, but it's playable as is, and you can have some fun with it. Crafting really needs a drastic reworking at high levels, and the way you get materials does too. It's stupid how the second I get to the 6th tier or whatever I just rush all the way to the tenth because I can just step from world to world grabbing all I need from the surface easily.
>But Chucklefish could fund the development of Starbound for another 9 years at least. Even if we didn’t make another penny in that time. This includes all our office costs, salaries and every other kind of company expenditure.
That being said; I think it's a good game, but it needs that one hefty update that turns it into a great one.
The latest wipe drove the player retention into the ground, (me included) but I'll probably pick it up again when ships are officially upgradeable.
>>265888207 >They have a shitload of money, actually. HAHAHAHAHHAHA you actually believe this tiyuri can't manage a project, I have it in good faith from an internet bro that consults for them that he blew most of his money early in hiring a huge team and an office, only to misuse them because he tries to be the cool boss that lets everyone browse twitter instead of working
they're running out of money already shouldn't have given so much money to the pink attention whore, it's almost pathetic how much tiy wants to bang her
>>265888084 aryan mod hits nexusmods around the same time we finished the dragon dildo and rape mods
comments are filled with people saying it's pretty cool and they're liking the campy iron sky feel it had(only it wasn't shit), he even got permissions from other modmakers to use assets
fast forward a day when it's pretty high in ranking the mod freaks the fuck out and starts banning people for holocaust denial and bans some more for not being offended and removes the mod, it's on infinite "pending moderator approval" now
this was a mod that didn't even offend the chucklefish forums
>>265888541 When my cakes are 90% complete, I put a knife in them and check if it's cooked properly. At 90%, it's not. >>265888623 It's not out till it's not out. People being able to play it do not mean it's out. I will not play and "judge" the game until it's 1.0
>>265888774 I'm sorry, but is Ridley already confirmed for not being in? Oh, that's right. The 3DS version is barely released, the Wii U™ version isn't even out yet. Does one player streaming the game for several hours before the entire world even has it in their hands count as Ridley confirmed for not being part of the roster? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you keep discussing this topic when nothing has even been confirmed yet? Sakurai has dropped big hints for how many months already? Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you keep discussing how Ridley isn't in. You know why? Because you're going to be embarassed when Ridley is revealed as an secret character and becomes even more popular than ever. Are you fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never call Ridley not being in Smash on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling only one guy is making all these anti-Ridley posts because you're a faggot hater who doesn't like Ridley because he is that big. FUCK YOU, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll us players in this board, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out the samefag because you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make another shitpost like you're doing now. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.
>>265888648 Meh, if I was in duo with a guy, I might give him a part of the profits instead of actual money. If the game fail, nobody get paid. If it's a best seller, he get rich and get money every month.
Everything about it is just empty. "random" gen weapons are awful, the lack of a stats system or accessories like terraria is awful, and the progression is STILL terrible because the best things you get from just crafting your own bland set of junk.
>>265888689 Has nobody uploaded the aryan and rape mods anywhere else? I remember stumbling across both of them but I can't find anything about them now. The dragon dildo mods are still up surprisingly.
>>265891736 the aryan mod is still up on his blog somewhere, i have the files back when i converted it to be compatible with the race loader a long time ago and the rape mod might not have ever been finished
i fell out of the scene, it's just too much modding to make this game worthwhile
