    As it currently stands it would be an alpha test.
    I'm expecting the beta to be released sometime in october.

    If you follow their site you will notice that they update it almost every day with things they're doing, and in my eyes, they're progressing really really fast!
    Really looking forward to the end product.

    No. There's a "Humble Bundle Store", where you can buy games on there (for regular and/or not *bundle* prices). I believe that's what (s)he means.

    For example.

    Oh whew...ok. I thought I missed out on a great deal as I'm keeping my eye on this game, but don't like to invest in things without seeing a good return. Promising ideas and screenshots are great, but I'm just a person who waits until there is a working version of a game to support it.

    I love that other people are willing to put their faith in projects, like on kickstarter, but it's just not for me personally.

    I understand the sentiment, and usually I'd agree with you. But Starbound, for me, is worth it; even if it's the same (which I am certain it will be better than, just saying) amount of entertainment as Terraria, it will be a solid investment, in my eyes. And, as Waervyn stated, they've progressed pretty far, it's not like you're getting a table-top presentation.

    Completely true. But I'm nothing if not a man of principle. Maybe when I make it big I'll have less principles in favor of more investment/generosity.

    Fair enough.

    It sorta pains me that I bought Terraria on Xbox Live. I will not be making the same mistake with Starbound.

    Sadly I did the same with Minecraft = /
    WoW is no longer an MMORPG. It is now a MMOAAG (Massively Multiplayer Online Action Adventure Game)

    Just read the most recent "Chronicle" that I got via e-mail from them, a little disappointed.

    This month brought a lot of controversy about the release date of the beta versus Starbound's "full release"-- among other things, like sewage-based monsters! Let's clear some things up.

    When we began pre-orders back in April, the idea of not completing the entire game by the end of the year seemed absurd! So we set our official "release date estimate" for 2013 and elsewhere stated that the game would definitely be out this year.

    Game development is fairly unpredictable, though, especially on games as large as Starbound, and things often take much longer than we could have thought possible. Given that, we'd taken the stance that it's the beta that will definitely be available this year, not the full game. While we're always actively talking to people in IRC and the forums, we only recently updated our website's info to reflect these changes! Sorry about that.
    Totally understand why, I just want to play the game.

    I would feel a lot better about that news if they actually gave us a date for the beta.

    Hell, can't they even give us a month?

    My friend and I are on the exact same boat as you. The game seems playable and I'd rather them just put the beta out and treat it like Terraria was with constant updates then watching them try and make it a fully finished product before the beta. I think they're going in the wrong direction by making everyone wait in the dark while the hype slowly dies out, personally I'd have been happy with just the starter planet to mess around on for beta and do that for a month or two. >.>

    It's getting to the point where if they just now start adding in one new feature I'm losing interest. In the beginning I was stoked as hell, but I don't want them to fall into the "we need more stuff in here!" trap. Save it for later. Finish what you have and kick this sucker out the door!

    Just incase people haven't been checking recent updates for Starbound here are some teaser photos.









    As was all being said earlier too, at this point I'm pretty much fresh out of excitement for this. I would have loved for them to just release the beta with a single planet and no way to get past it lol.

    Yeah, after getting Terraria patch 1.2, my initial thought after seeing this thread again: "Oh yeah, Starbound exists..."

    Guys. Hey guys. Big news. The Starbound beta? It's going to be...

    Wait for it!

    This is going to blow your mind!

    You should probably be sitting down for this AMAZING news!

    A beta!

    Still no ETA.
