    Never heard of the game before, but I just looked it up and it looks pretty interesting.

    First time I've heard of this game as well. Kyle, what are you most looking forward to about the game? I'm interested in hearing why it has you so excited!

    From what I could find it looks like a Sci-Fi Terraria which is really cool in it's own right.

    Would definitely like to hear more than just an overview.

    This is the game that Zanthian keeps talking about on Thursdays, when he says things like "I can't wait for that space game that those Terraria guys are making to come out!"

    I am also looking forward to it.

    I've heard about this game, but kept forgetting to check it out. Now that I've looked at it, I think it's worth keeping an eye on.

    For those of you wondering, it is indeed a more sci-fi approach to the Terraria world, from a few of the Terraria creators, as CB mentioned. Pretty much, you have five races, and no matter which one you pick, you start on a spaceship leaving your home planet, which is being destroyed by an unknown force. The 'goal', you could say, is to fix your shuttle, and start re-colonizing the universe. You can even hop into your friend's universe and chill with them! The creatures, the planets, and the opportunities are limitless in this game!

    Quite true. It disappoints me :/
  • TheRedburnTheRedburn Spaceman K Detroit, MI Icrontian
    I figure I'll be the Glitch. They have a nice Cyberman helmet ( although I don't plan on using it), and I just like robots in general.

    I am pretty excite about this. I really enjoyed Terraria and was quite sad when Redigit just quit (and rolled back for a console release just to make more money). This looks to be even better than that.
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX Icrontian
    I'll give it a shot. Terraria was good for a week or two of amusement.
  • TheRedburnTheRedburn Spaceman K Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Man, I played through Terraria like, 6 times! I loved it.
  • d3k0yd3k0y Loveland, OH Icrontian
    I got a feeling I am going to pick up quite a few copies of this game. They mentioned possibly doing a kickstarter style tier pre-orders, I am pretty excite.

    They released their roadmap in a cool way. Check it out.
  • TheRedburnTheRedburn Spaceman K Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Beat you to it. Progress is coming along, it seems.
  • TheRedburnTheRedburn Spaceman K Detroit, MI Icrontian

    Clearly he should have went with the 2000 dollar one and had a statue build in honor of Icrontic, but obviously cheap-ass.
