Cool

Crea

To fill the void left by the unexpected and tragic death of Terraria:


Important bit:
To give us this modding flexibility, the game's content scripts are Python code, which is a scripting language that can handle real game logic. We've exposed the entire game engine to Python, which means that new content can make meaningful and unique changes to gameplay. The base game content is also a mod itself, so it is fully accessible to anyone who wants to view and modify it.
Yay!  Though I would have been happy with Lua.


Ten bucks to pre-order the game. If it turns out anything like Terraria, it will eat your life be perhaps the best ten bucks you've ever spent.

And while you're at it, there's also Star Command, already available for on its way to iWidgets and Androids, now coming to PC and Mac:

Star Command?  I remember a SF/space turn-based RPG game by SSI from 1989 using the same name.  Tactical party battles, ship-to-ship combat, exploration, quests, stealing and selling stuff, against pirates, insects, and robots.  Oh yeah, the game had its own version of the Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster, which was actually very useful.

Good times.  Good times.

Then we had a mid 90's made-for-TV movie featuring space cadets, space combat, and Morgan Fairchild, but that is a story for another time.

2 You're right (on the SSI game).  Somehow I never played that, even though it was available on the Amiga.

3 Crea's graphics look kinda bland compared to Terraria and the like.  What do you think of Starbound?

4 Some of the artwork for Crea is great, but the sprite artwork and animations definitely need some more work done.  It looks like they're pretty early in the development cycle so far.  You can see that Star Command uses similar levels of detail but is much more fluid and expressive.
Starbound looks awesome.  If they had a Kickstarter drive I'd be all over it.
