Starbound Amazing

The level of ambition in this game is amazing. The design and effects for a 2D game are on scale with some 3D games.

Weather effects, moving trees and foliage.

Particle effects

My god, If Konami released another 2D castlevania with multiplayer and this level of detail it would be one of the greatest games ever created. Shadow complex which looked pretty amazing for a 2.5D game wasn't even as detailed as this.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

So basically, what Megaman should've been.

Yea, the graphics and spritework are nothing short of amazing, and it's fairly obvious they've spent the biggest part of development so far in these areas. Presentation is top notch. Now they just need to fill in the sandbox gameplay a little more. Further fleshing out of homeplanets, building NPC cities, etc.

There is a nice list circulating with all the planned features. Once they are added (hopefully not too long from now), the game will truly be a masterpiece. Until then, it's still a pretty fun game with absolutely wonderful visuals.

Megaman, Metroid, Contra, Castlevania...

However Megaman did have a pretty good 3D spin off in my opinion.

I agree, this game is tons of fun and it's not even finished.

So far I'm just enjoying wandering around from planet to planet.
