What is starbound?
Starbound is a 2d platformer designed and made for the PC.
Starbound has It's own personally coded gaming engine. You get to fight monsters with a wide variety of crafted or randomly generated weapons, you can explore to your own desires, you can craft, you can almost literally do whatever you want. Although some people dislike the pixel graphic design, the blocks and backgrounds are generally beautiful and the game mechanics are awesome.
Starbound has no official release date yet, look towards the end of December 2012 / Early 2014
