Tell me about the game
Starbound is a strategic game where you attempt to
expand your single planet into an empire of galactic proportions. Pick
any one of six races, each with different ship designs and tactical strengths.
Pick the density of your sector in space, the number of opponents and the
intelligence of the computer opponents against you. Average game play will
take from ten minutes to one hour per game.
I wanted to try a few things with Starbound that
would make it a game that I would enjoy playing. First, I wanted to be
able to see the whole screen and all the info at one time. Second, I wanted
to add movement and tactical strategy to my favorite space game of all
time, Spaceward HO!. Third, I wanted to test out how to do hex management.
And fourth, I wanted to work on a behavior-based AI opponent. - Josh
