Just watched a few minutes of the Starbound game demonstration at i49 and I had to drop it on the site. Molly and Bart show off the game starting with Character Creation, Multiplayer and questing.

The game looks VERY pretty and polished for a pre-beta. The art and music work well together to build the world. The basic exploration elements look great. You seem to start with a nice assortment of items in the matter manipulator, flashlight, basic weapons & torches.

Check it out and sound off with your thoughts in the comments.

Is this the same company that made Terraria?

No, but one of the artists did.

It's interesting that at the beginning they said they were influenced by other "blocked-based" genre games like "Minecraft and such," but don't mention Terraria, which people will assume Starbound is the sequel to.

Right, well I think there might be some kind of "odd relationship" between Terraria and Starbound so it makes sense that they don't list it. :D

From a recent article in PC Gamer.

Huh, well we shall see! I wouldn't mind "Terraria in space" though.

I don't think you are far off truth be told and yeah, I would too :D
