Starbound Pre-Orders Prove Somewhat Popular


Starbound, which we've talked about previously, is said to be a "spiritual successor" (although not directly affiliated) to the enormously popular Terraria. This sentiment bodes well for the game as its pre-orders, which have only been open since last night, have already raised an exceptional $159,799 at the time of writing. That's a figure that's fast increasing. That's a figure that - hand in hand with Prison Architect - show that you don't need to rely on Kickstarter if you have the right game. Starbound is due to have a beta this year, and pre-ordering persons will gain access when that appears.

Below here lies a video that will give you a taste of what's in store.
