Last year my coworker and I were playing Terraria a bit and he told me about Starbound. At that point it was very much in beta. A year later and it is still in beta, but the first major update in quite some time is coming. Here is the official trailer for the Winter Update.
We're that much closer to 1.0 :)
p.s. I'm bad at doing hobby stuff when the days are short. Sorry.
