Comments and Reviews
Said about Starbound as an alternative
The game concept is pretty alike. Concepts like space exploration and procedural universe ties these two games together. If you're into those stuff consider Starbound game a nice 2D alternative to No Man's Sky
Terraria Just With More Space And Adventure
Starbound and Terraria are far more similar than either paired with Minecraft.
