Game – Starbound – Preview

From the creators of Terraria comes a game that blends the creation aspect made popular by Minecraft, the space exploration dynamic from Spore, and the (possible) combat similarities to Borderlands. The game will possibly launch in early 2013!

I have never been good at Minecraft-style games simply due to the amount of time they require to see results. I also lean heavily towards games with story and character development. While this game does not appear to have much – I can see the potential for story creation within the mind of the player. Similar to the game FTL, there are sometimes stories that can be created within the experience that happen naturally vs. those created by the developers. One other game like this, Journey, has a stronger story (and an amazing score that won a Grammy!) that has some story but relies on the user and the unique multiplayer component to “craft” your own experience through the game.

There seems to be a unique trend of games coming up with different methods of telling stories and allowing the user to have their own adventure instead of completely relying upon the game developers to push us down their own path.
