After being released early in the morning yesterday, indie developer Chucklefish Games has taken to Reddit
to outline their very first update to 2D sci-fi sandbox title Starbound which will see a number of tweaks and bug fixes to the early access beta.
One of the more prominent changes players will see is that the pixel cost (in-game currency) for crafting some of the early weapons and armour on your workbench have been significantly reduced, some to the point of no cost at all. The change will hopefully help those struggling a bit to overcome the quite high initial cost when building your weapons or armour.
Other changes include new climbable ropes that you can craft, iron will now appear more often, reduction of fuel costs by a bit to visit other planets, the addition of a hunting knife weapon that compliments the hunting bow for meat gathering, tweaks to the UFO boss and of course a number of UI changes including making the warmth bar more obvious.
If all this sounds like your kind of style, you can check out the official website
for more or find the game available on Steam
for Windows, Mac and Linux at $15 or $44.99 for a four pack.
