The blog post in which I rant about Starbound while forgetting why I made this post in the first place. · 9:27am Aug 14th, 2016

So I was looking at my Google Docs list, and I realized I had a half-written chapter for a new story based off of Starbound. For the uninitiated, Starbound is a 2D space exploration game set in a large procedurally generated universe. It recently left Early Access on Steam, and has eaten up my time. So much so, that I've now put more time into it than Terraria, a 2D more survival-ish game. So you may be asking, "Gee, doesn't that sound like another space exploration game that just released?" And you'd be both right and wrong. Starbound is in some ways similar to No Man's Sky. (And I know the fanboys that rode the hype train all the to the station will be on me for that comment, and everything I'm about to say next.) There's spaceships, a procedurally generated universe, with all sorts of things to see, and yes, the collect-a-thons are strong in both games, though for Starbound a lot of that collecting is done underground. That is where the similarities end though, as far as I'm aware.

Thanks for the fave on The Iron Horse! I'm glad you're enjoying it. :twilightsmile:

2425707 I'd be all over Age of Triumph myself, but the day after it released I got Elite Dangerous and it's held my attention ever since

Thanks for the fav on Odium! Glad that you are enjoying it. There will be a chapter soon, just been delayed by the Age of triumph :twilightsmile:

I'm ah huge fan of the lore too, but I had to sacrifice a lot of really deep story elements for both games mainly for the fact that I want everyone to be able to enjoy it without needing to know all the precurser stuff, also for the sake of the universes fitting together in a streamlined way.

Still, I'm glad your enjoying it, I'll have a new chapter out soon enough. :trollestia:

2419335 I am a massive Halo lore nut, and I've played a lot of Destiny recently. I can safely tell you that many MLP crossover ideas have run through my head, and strangely enough, Long Far Gone strikes close to a few of them.
