    why...oh,why....are the glitch a medieval race ??
    they are robots lol !
    shouldn't they live in futuristic village ?

    while exploring a planet i found one of their village,and it felt really weird...
    they live in stone houses with straw roofs..
    horse-riding knight ? come on lol
    guards with spears and swords ?
    even their racial armors have a medieval apparance..

    i really think this is wrong lol
    but thats just my opinion :)

    I agree.. They should just switch the Ape and Robot races. I feel like I'm just being trolled.

    Please don't. Apex are basically the monkies from planet of the Apes and Glitch are their own unique and interesting take on the sudden emergence of sentience in a species of robots that were never meant to be self aware. I like them both and taking that away from them would kind of rob the game of character to me

    Not sure if you've read any lore or not, but TL;DR, they are 'glitched' into being stuck in the medieval phase of human evolution.

    "The Glitch were part of a program invented by an unknown race of enormous intelligence, they were built as a means of simulating the social and technological progress of a civilization.

    These experiments took place in a vast number of regions across the Universe, despite changing a plethora of variables each civilization eventually destroyed itself when its technological progression began to overtake its social progression. All but the Glitch.

    For reasons unknown a fault caused the Glitch to become stuck early in the simulation, where they now remain. The experiment long abandoned, the Glitch are unable to shake their Medieval values and beliefs. They’re entirely unaware of their origin and are built to experience the feelings and desires of any other sentient organism."

    I'm not really sure I care about lore, since no amount of it would ever convince me that this is possible. It's just silly.

    ...So the glorious long sword, butthats of despair or the planet of eye stalks aren't a little silly? :facepalm:

    well,no...i didnt read that lore before actually :)

    it is written than to reproduce,they find a mate and build phisically a new robot.
    so they are good enough to build robots using only medieval tools
    and yet they live in straw house ?
    man,thats a ****ed-up race lol
    anyway,still feels weird to me :D

    The OP raises a valid concern. The only trolls I see here are the ones not contributing anything but flames to a fire.

    The nature of the Glitch is quite possibly the most plausible aspect of this entire game. I really don't see how that's the problem here.

    If that's your "biggest concern," then I'd say Starbound's off to a great start.

    I like that the devs took the time to think outside the box about the differant species. Would you rather have space elves?

    ''The Glitch reproduce by finding a mate and physically building a new Glitch together.''

    i'm just saying such an advanced race shouldn't live in a castle with swords on the walls..
    they should live in a high-tech bunker full of computers
    i'm just saying it's kinda weird haha
