Starbound embarked into beta territory through Steam’s Early Access program on 4 December, and already looks like it’ll be getting pretty regular updates from former Terraria lead artist (now lead dev on this game) Finn ‘Tiy’ Brice. In a news post over at the title’s site, Tiy lists a collection of changes that have already been made to the game over the past 24 hours and adds that “This is just what I’ve done so far this morning, I’ll add to this list as more is added for tonights update.”
If you’re in the Starbound beta, your copy should update automatically through Steam to give you the latest build. Here’s what’s been altered so far:
– Make hunger bar display when the alt key is held down (done)
– Added a dumb, quick way to advance through some of the tier 4-10 content (armors, weapons), just for fun. Complete tiers of content are coming really soon. I’d like to get 1/2 tiers of content done per week. (done)
– Fixed a bug where minibosses over level 11 were not dropping the rare items they were supposed to be dropping. They now drop guns. (Thank you to <ippia> for finding this) (done)
Starbound is available through Early Access for $15.00 USD. While not the same game, it should be fairly familiar to those who played a lot of Terraria.
