Bio originally on Starbound's Team page
Hello guys! Starbound is a project I started with the goal in mind of producing my dream game. I grew up with a C64 and really got into gaming with my Genesis and SNES. Though games have continued to advance in a multitude of ways since the 16bit era, I feel the charm present in some of the old classics is still unmatched. Starbound is my attempt to capture that charm and combine it with the depth of a modern title. I hope to put a smile on your face once you get your hands on the game. I’m truly thankful to all of those that have supported me.
