Starbound hasn't had a significant update in months.

Weren't you into Dwarf Fortress? That just had a 2 year period between updates following (IIRC) another 2 year delay between updates.


Are you comparing a game that was supposed to come out in 2013, with a developer that bans people from forums for even constructive criticism, and hasn't had a substantial update in like 8 months to a completely free indie game?

Well, it was quite a while ago that they bumped the release date out of 2013 to an "until it's ready" thing.

That was a pretty sweet conch on the first page. Did you guys see it? Looks pretty old.

Anyway, this is why I didn't buy into the Starbound hype. They set out to prey on all the Terraria popularity and failed to ride the coat tails of success. Now it looks like a get rich quick scheme gone wrong.

Whether or not they fail to deliver, I'm pretty sure they've successfully ridden on Terraria's coattails.

Is all this drama recent? I haven't played it since like a month after early release, but the game seems pretty active and well received overall.

Also, not sure if you realize this, but the project head was one of the co-designers of Terraria.

Anyone that bought trash deserves it. AKA I know Tweed in real life.

So, you haven't looked at the reviews or the Steam forums? You know they lock, delete, and ban most criticism, right?

Why the hell are you shilling here?

Nah, I haven't, just the CF forums.

Tiy was just an artist for Terraria.

The CF forums are even worse.

I'm just curious when it began, because I've been checking out the forums once or twice a month and never noticed it.

I've only ever posted criticism(about how you can't set spawn points) and never had any moderation happen to me.
