A charming space sandbox that will keep you busy and entertained for hours.

Starbound is a 2D extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game developed by Chucklefish, a London-based independent game studio. Like Minecraft or Terraria, the pixelated sandbox of Starbound involves plenty of mining, gathering of resources, inventory management, buying, selling, farming, stealing, and crafting. Starbound is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. With a universe at your beck and call, where do you begin? Thankfully, Starbound starts off by tethering you to a single world as soon as you’ve named your character. The story itself isn’t the most complex or mind-blowing, but the universe that developer Chucklefish built to tell it in is overflowing with character and detail. Each of the six sentient races has a unique culture, architectural style, and ongoing conflict that must be resolved in order to save the galaxy.

  • EXPLORATION UNENDING. In Starbound, you create your own story – there’s no wrong way to play!

Starbound Reviews

8.6 Total Score

Starbound is a deep and vast constructor with a killer soundtrack. The sheer volume of different kinds of locations to discover, items to craft and build great structures with, and flashy ways to vanquish aliens prevent any part of the experience from getting boring quickly. A charming space sandbox that will keep you busy and entertained for hours.
