I have to remind myself this game is still going to happen, bought it months ago on humble bundle or w/e and it's never going to come out D:
I love that other people are willing to put their faith in projects, like on kickstarter, but it's just not for me personally.
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 = /
purchased the 4 pack yesterday for me and friends. Cant wait for this game. Love terraria, this is going to be hawt.
Just read the most recent "Chronicle" that I got via e-mail from them, a little disappointed.
Totally understand why, I just want to play the game.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.
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?

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.
