Watching loads of people check out the game was really useful as far as alerting us to the sort of problems we need to address prior to beta, and gave us lots of ideas for piecing things together. Over the weekend, we said that developing Starbound is like piecing together a very large puzzle. There are a whole lot of elements and they're almost all complete, but they need to be pieced together in a cohesive and logical way in order for the game to be fun. That's where we are right now!
We'll continue to keep you in the loop with daily updates, weekly monsters, and all the rest on the road to getting stuff done- I know we've been slacking on it the past week or so. Sorry!
Oh, and check out that screenshot of our penguin UFO boss above (click to enlarge). <3
