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. (My computer is a potato, so even if No Man's Sky wasn't poorly optimized, I still wouldn't be able to run it. No modern consoles either, I say as I look at my PS2, 360, and 3DS.)

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.

Glad to hear it, I take it you're a fan of at least one of the games? :trollestia:

>>2418957 It's definitely one of the nutter crossovers I've seen, and my inner lore nut cringes every other paragraph, but it's enjoyable.

#354 · 1w, 15h ago · · ·

Thanks for the fave on Long Far Gone. I hope your enjoying it so far. :trollestia:
