    I;m pretty sure that's the PC Gamer article. Same got me into it... although I decided to give a check on forums just months later.
  4. Red announced he was no longer updating Terraria and that Tyi left to work on his own game called Starbound

    The rest is history.

    Ironically I found this game through the Cube World unofficial forums. Someone had suggested we check it out because the dev's here were a lot better at communicating with their community. So a quick Google search, and here I am!

    I've traveled from the distant future, where Starbound was just a glorious legend to my peoples. I overshot on my way back and missed the release date by a bit, but that's alright. Imagine my frustration when I discovered an article on Steam telling me that Terraria wasn't the right game.

    Don't remember when exactly, I first heard about it when a thread popped up about it on the Penny Arcade forums.

    This isn't a new topic. But I haven't seen one like it in at least a couple months, so I'll bite.

    I learned of this game through one of the steam Greenlight games comments. I don't even remember which game I was reading through the comments on, bu I obviously remember Starbound.

    Sometime ago, in Hedgewars IRC, I had heard several times about "Tiy's new game". I asked about it and was linked here, and bookmarked it. Later after discovering Terraria I registered on these forums.

    That's why there's a search bar... http://community.playstarbound.com/index.php?threads/how-did-you-find-starbound.663/
    Anyway I saw Dragonith's monster monster entry on deviantart, which led me to starbound.

    I was kinda active on the terraria forum and since Tiy worked there before and it came up
    that he would move on and make his own game, thus i found out about Starbound.

    It was May 2011 and I made some fan art for a certain game and then Tiy was like "d00d I like this!" and I was like "d00d, give me a job!" and soon after I started making the first concept art for what would eventually become known as Starbound.

    I was a little kid.
    Some magician called Tyu came and told me an incredible story about a game I always dreamed about.

    But so many years have passed and it became an old souvenir...

    Some nights, before falling asleep, I sometimes dream about this magician and his wonderfull story... but now that I'm a grown up, I surely know it was only a tale to get little boys to sleep...

    Damn !

    (Truly, first announcement on Terraria forum a long time ago.)

    My freshman year roommate suggested I take a look at it when I said "I should add space to Terraria".

    And that day was good.

    I had just bought Terraria in the steam summer sale last year and then I saw a news article about Starbound in Terraria's steam news feed. Then after exhausting terraria/ getting my experience ruined by a couple friends who'd had it far longer than I, I decided to check out what Starbound was.
