If you’ve been to any type of gaming convention in the last few years (at least in the UK), you will have seen Starbound chilling out in a corner somewhere. That ‘little’ indie game has finally received a release date. Not an Early Access phase-two release date, not even a beta release date – it’s an official release date on Steam.
“After ~5 years, the game we set out to make finally exists, and to say that it all feels a bit surreal would be a massive understatement!” wrote Chucklefish, the developers of Starbound on their blog. “While Starbound will be finished in two weeks, this isn’t the end. We will continue to update and support Starbound for as long as we can.”
“We’ve got loads of cool ideas we couldn’t fit into 1.0 but hope to put into future updates. Thanks again for all your support over the years! You’ve stuck with us, and it means so much. Look out for more info over the next couple of weeks!”
Check out the link below to watch the announcement of the release date on YouTube. It’s almost an hour long, so there’s plenty to watch for Starbound fans.
Starbound leaves Early Access on July 22nd.
