How does this game work, exactly? I didn't see much information on their website.

Consider that you're telling someone who has never played this genre of game before (i.e.: me).

It's actually pretty fucking solid if you have an interest in creation.

it's terraria with a [developing] storyline and procedural world generation in a presumably infinite solar system. it's complex and fanciful.

moving server to professional hosting shortly, will update once it's sorted

It's not gonna be like that video of Farming Simulator where you think you are helping the jews stop the Iranians from putting Nuke Silos on your farm with your balling Lamborghini Tractor while that same Skrillex song plays in the background on a constant loop. Instead I got a game that was utterly lacking pro zionist views on farming and nuclear proliferation, no skrillex and 20 dollars of regret that inevitably led me down a path to drug addiction and depression. So in closing fuck Farming Simulator it ruined my life, and it'll do the same to yours.

starbound certainly has skrillex, you just have to look hard for it

I torrented this to see what it was like... I don't really care for it based off what I saw... It's like a 2D minecraft? Does it matter if you steal from people on the planets (like in their chests/etc)? I don't really know... It may be fun on a competitive or coop server... I don't really 'get it' though.

Yes it's similar to games like terraria and minecraft. I think the big difference here is starbound is on track to have a lot more options for crafting and things to do. It's still in BETA so a lot of features aren't in yet that are planned. From what I hear it's more fun with other people and terraria was the same way. The big thing here with starbound is there are thousands of procedurally generated planets that you can explore with different biomes and lifeforms etc.

Games like this I usually play to kill time here and there. They are a lot of fun but it can get kind of boring if you have nothing specific you are trying to accomplish. When they add more objectives and missions and stuff it will get better.

Click this to see a mod whose features will likely find themselves being absorbed into the official release as development continues.

Starbound is extremely early in development, right now it's sort of like Terraria in that there are no real objectives aside from climbing the tiers of weaponry/armor/biomes/etc. but eventually it will have an actual fleshed-out story.
