16 November – The Vaults in Our Stars

Hey everyone!
In our last post we showed off terraforming which can completely transform the biome of a planet (including the background)!

Control over the very nature of a planet itself? That sure seems like some form of mysterious, ancient technology, doesn’t it? No ordinary explorer can get their hands on something like this – you’re going to have to enter the Ancient Vaults to hunt them down. What other bygone secrets do these vaults hold, and what guards them?

The update isn’t far away now, so we hope you’re all excited!

In other news, our friends at Sanshee have made some really cool Protectorate t-shirts and tanks! We’ve had loads of requests for Protectorate shirts, and Sanshee’s done a great job turning them into a real thing! Go check them out on Sanshee!

1st November – A Whole New World

Hey everyone!

The next Starbound update is gearing up to be an exciting one, we think. In particular, we’re excited to finally have implemented a feature that’s been requested for a long time: terraforming!

In other words, the ability to transform a planet’s main biome into a biome of your choosing.

You’ll be able to accomplish this by obtaining a terraformer and setting it down on a planet’s surface. By fueling the terraformer, you’ll be able to expand the terraformed area outward, eventually changing the planet’s main biome!

Lots of other cool stuff in the works for Starbound 1.2, and I look forward to revealing more as we get closer to finishing it. ‘Til next time!

7th October – Status Update

Hey everyone, long time no dev blog! :)

A couple of weeks ago, we had a panel at EGX! Thanks to everyone who came and asked questions and talked to us afterwards – it was really lovely to meet you all! If you missed it, it’s up on the Youtubes now.

We’ve been working on the next update! Here’s a tiny sneak peek:


‘Til next time!
