    Greetings all.

    Lately I have been tempted to create a pixel-art comic based upon Starbound. Currently I am still fiddling with layout and thematic issues, but I felt like sharing a little message with the community here. Of late (I too am included in this at times) some members of the community could have done a better job of helping make this forum a good place for new arrivals to come and discuss the game and express their interests.

    In my not-so humble opinion, some games are really only as good as the community that comprise them. Sure many games can be played entirely solo (and are wonderful) or with a small group of friends; but there are a lot of people who enjoy being a part of a wider community. It is our responsibility as members of the community to shape the community in a positive fashion.

    Nuff said on that. I do plan to follow up on this one-off again in the near future. As I intend to use game-generated art assets almost entirely, until the game (or at least Beta) come out I must do a bit of scrounging for art assets naturally. I am hoping my first 'real' entry in the Boundless Stars webcomic will be much better than this poor offering.

    As it turns out, inspiration struck a little sooner than I had expected. Welcome to the (just starting) adventure of Bob (Robert) the Glitch.

    Protip: Always look behind you to make sure someone important isn't standing there.

    And yes, there is a perfectly good reason he is not wearing pants. More on that 'Soon'.

    Robert loved his parents, but hey every character needs a tragic backstory, right?

    Glad you like them so far. Slowly grinding the story along; I do not expect this 'flashback period' to take too much longer.

    And that wraps up the flashback sequence. Back to the main plot we go!

    Some corrections:
    I'll correct the next ones tomorrow, if you want me to.

    Heavier corrected. However in this instance using "in the forge" is correct; as his work occurred in the building (but was not using the forge itself). If the Father had been working in the forge (and forging) it would indeed be correct to use "at the forge".

    A little bit of crappy animation in this one. I don't plan to do this very often, but once in a while it may be appropriate.

    Next time: Pants!

    He already knows they are dead, so this should not be too shocking right? Well then again how they died may be important, neh?

    Or just cut them up for sushi (or deep fry them) or however you prepare tentacles on your planet.

    Murderers are so inconsiderate, leaving such a mess for other people to clean up.
