Good News, Side-Scrolling 2D Science Fiction Multiplayer Sandbox Platformer Fans Edition

  • Starbound has opened up pre-orders!  That's usually not that big a deal, but in this case (a) it's a successor to the much-loved Terraria, being put together on a tight budget by a tiny studio, and extra money now could really help make the game better, and (b) they're running with Kickstarter-style stretch goals - when they reach $500,000, for example, they'll add a new alien race.  At the time of writing, they've been going for a little over a day - on a weekend, too - and have reached $370,000, so it's looking good.  Update: $500,000 reached, new race - Novakids - are in, next goal is alien fossils at $750,000.

  • Darkout.  It's on Desura, GamersGate and Steam Greenlight.  It's not pixel-art (the style of Terraria and Starbound), but it's still a little cartoonish; I think the art style works well for a slightly more serious game.  Take a look at the trailer and see what you think.

1 Starbound preordered.  Hopefully it'll be at least as good as Terraria!

2 It looks like it may even be better than Terraria.  If it has a Linux server (very likely, since there's a Linux client) I'll set up a multiplayer instance here at
