Starbound is an indie game similar to Terraria, Minecraft and other such games in the sandbox genre. The difference between the games does show when users comment on them, each game has bosses, mobs, and worlds, this is true, but only starbound has unlimited worlds. Starbound is more about exp;oration than constant mob grinding. It's quite interesting to go from planet to planet in search of new treasures and such.

Starbound will support Windows, Mac, and Linux at both beta and full release. Dedicated server software for these operating systems is available with the game download, as well. Post-release, we’d love to work on porting the game to other platforms, including the PlayStation 4.
Will there be multiplayer?Edit
Starbound will be fully cooperatively and competitively multiplayer, the number of players is entirely up to the server and we’re working hard to ensure the server is built with server communities in mind. Don’t worry– you can also play solo!
