Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.

Wow, good for them. Looks really interested and I've been thinking about grabbing it on XBO. Might have to give the trial a go this week.

Disappointed thought you make this topic when the game has outsold no man's sky.

Good game. Great sales. Right game at the right time to fill a left void

Exploring uncharted worlds is really popular and it's been for a while now.

After Minecraft, NMS and all the steam sucesses i wonder if one of the big publishers will take a crack at the genre.

I saw my friend just start playing this right around the time you posted this... starting to wonder if you are said friend. LOL

I like the game's style, I just don't know if this type of game is for me. Watched some folks at work play it for a bit, but I didn't quite get the hook.

Congrats but I gave up on it on pretty early on. Kinda difficult to get a hang of, but I might dive back into it after following the thread on here.

Great game! If a bit barebone atm. Really hoped it would take off (pun intended :p )
Hopefully they will continue with the updates, they seem to have great contact with their community, I think it have a great future in head of them.

I'll definitely check back in on this in 6 months or so, see whether it's worth diving in yet or better to wait for 1.0. Something about it appeals to me more than most of these games.

Seems like the YouTube game du jour as well, saw that Northernlion and his crew as well as Day9 did videos on it.

Its really gotten this popular? i didnt expect that at all, the only reason ive known about it well before now is because people compared it to NMS before it showed up. i was watching a friend of mine play it, and it seems like its alright and has a lot of potential, but it doesnt seem like theres all that much to it right now

are people just getting this because of NMS?

Not deserved at all in this stage. It baffles me that more people haven't refunded it. It got potential in some years, but there is practically no content right now.

It's not all that at the moment, but obviously with that level of early support then they don't really have any excuses to not pick it up and run all the way with it.

I would say $20 is a hefty price for early access, but the stats speak for themselves. Half a million players, 90% positive reviews. I might have to give it a try myself.
