Infinity and Beyond: Starbound’s Sandbox is Truly Galactic or Grand Theft Furniture: San Galaxia

StarBound Grand Theft Furniture Sans Galaxia

Chucklefish, the indie creators of PC-based “Starbound,” makes no reservations about what to expect when playing the beta version of their first-ever game.

(Seriously, Nintendo, what the hell were you thinking with THAT one? No Little Mac announcement during E3? Blech.)
