I’m about 55 hours into Starbound so far and I’ve only done two of the main quest in the game. I’ve been really distracted building new homes and exploring the vast, but bland, universe in the game.
Most of the 55 hours that I’ve spent in Starbound has been spent building myself a home and settlement for NPCs to flock to. I’ve even built myself a storage room underground that can only be accessed from a hatch in the ceiling. I’m no near done with my settlement, but I really love what I’ve done with the place so far and I decided to share it with you guys.
I still have a bunch of houses/stores to build, but I want them to look good. I don’t want to rush through them like because of how great the crafting system in this game is. Building isn’t the only thing I’ve done though. I’ve also explored a few planets across the universe and even found a giant mushroom kingdom that reminds me of Super Mario. There’s even little mushroom men that look like Toad.
I’ve come across a monkey colony that reminds me of Wolfenstein: The New Order. Starbound is great so far and I can’t wait to finish it, but I think that’s still a long way off. I’m currently preparing to fight the spaceship flying penguin again because he beat my ass the last time I tried to go up against him. Wish me luck and hopefully the next Starbound article I write will be filled with details of my triumphant victory instead of another humiliating defeat.
