Reviews

"I’ve already played around with its insanely ambitious world-building and baddy-blasting, and I had seen that it was full of promise." -Rock Paper Shotgun
"I've played the game for a bit, and I must say: I am very excited for the future of StarForge." -Destructoid
"It’s remarkably ambitious, but the terrain manipulation already looks fantastic and outer space is gorgeous. This thing has “potential” scrawled all over it." -PC Gamer

About This Game

StarForge is a sci fi survival sandbox. Hunt to eat, dig for resources, craft many items, build a fort, and fight enemies in order to survive! Do this alone, or with other players, in a fully infinite procedural world.

Key Features in StarForge:


Procedural Infinite Voxel Terrain - There are no set boundaries in StarForge; the planet will procedurally generate each time you start a new game. The terrain supports plains, mountains, deserts, mountains, caves, overhangs, rocks, and much more. The world is infinite, meaning you will be able to run in a single direction for as long as your computer can support it.

Underground/Surface/Space Gameplay - Build a tower that ascends into the clouds, through the atmosphere, then into space, and do this in real-time with no loading screens.

Dynamic World - Enjoy dynamic weather patterns, a 24 day and night cycle, and a real time atmosphere. Creatures drop loot and attack the player and sometimes other creatures. Players can also swim and find water or lava in the game.

Loot and Survive - Before the humans landed countless weapons and armor were sent to Atlas. You will find loot chests littered throughout the land, you will need their contents to survive.

Vehicle Gameplay - Hop on board a 4 wheeled all terrain vehicle with a friend and traverse the world. Or jump into a hovercraft for speedy terrain movement. You may also take flight in the space helicopter.

Procedural 3D Tileset - Build anything you want with our unique 3D Tilesets. You can create towns, villages, bridges, forts, and much more. It is also fully destructible! Ramps and stairs are also included.

Physics Sandbox - We are designing the world to be fully dynamic. This currently includes chopping down trees, turrets, and enemies.

Physics Movement - Our movement model is designed closely around the real bio mechanics of biped locomotion; The result is a more human look and feel, and a character that is equipped to intelligently react to dangers far beyond what conventional movement code was designed to handle. It also features a full body IK system.

Resources and Economy - There will be many different resources in StarForge. However, the player can only hold so much at a time. When the player can no longer hold what he mined, he will have to build containers to store them into. This makes resources tangible and gives you the ability to steal other players resources.

Multiplayer & SinglePlayer - We have both modes playable in the game.

Survival - In this mode you are tasked with surviving on the planet. You will encounter enemies, find new blueprints, gather weapons, build a base, and so much more.

Creative - In this mode you have unlimited resources and can build at great speeds. You may also place creatures anywhere you want.

This game is buggy, incomplete and will likely never finish. It has not seen an update since 2014 and this review is being posted in 2016.

DO NOT BUY.

Havnt played this game since late alpha, decided to take a look to see how much progress had been made because I saw a lot of potential. No news or updates in three years, and the general consensus is that this and several other projects by the same people were basically intended to have a lot of good ideas and a cool premise, and made to be barely functional for the alpha and beta early access periods.... and then the devs vanish with all the money without actually finishing the game. Since I bought this years ago I woln't demand or expect a refund, I just wanted to post this to warn others away from this..... playable concept since it can still be purchased. There were good ideas here, and I was really looking forward to building a ladder to the moon orbiting the planet. But its NMRIH all over again. Good ideas, abandoned for years, and the final result is an unplayable mess. Don't be disheartened though, there are many games in early access that are perfectly playable as they are and the devs respond to ideas and critisisms alike. Just be cautious, talk to friends who have the game if possible, and try to have fun. Code}{atch on the other hand will never again get money from me.

Even if you accept the fact that large parts of the game are never finished - you just cant play the dam thing.
My friends and I have all high-end PCs, but the performance of this game (even if it looks like sh..) is so horrible, you simply cant play the game together.
Hint: The performance is "okay" as long nothing is build or terraformed. But as soon as two or more players start building for 10-15min its GAME OVER performance wise.

We tired some versions during development, and then the final release several times.
Last try was 1/2 year ago with the 980gtx and an i7@4,2Ghz....
Its so sad - because the fun potential was there...

My advise:

1.) Stay Away from this game.
2.) If you did not buy the game - enjoy dodging a scam for free
3.) Be very very skeptical with games from that developer in the future

If your reading this, please make a Change.org petition to get this Steam pile taken down. We'll be lucky if we ever get a refund out of this, but the devs need to be held accountable. Especially since they worked on Reign of Kings after this fiasco, even though this hunk of Steam junk has yet to be made playable. Afterwards, they've gone and abandoned that as well.

Codehatch; you thieving, malicious Barsetoles.

It'd be one thing if you'd taken it and run off into the sunset to bury your heads in the sand... BUT NO!
INSTEAD YOU'VE GONE AND ABANDONED ANOTHER GAME IN MID-DEVELOPMENT, EH?!
I tried to warn people in the Reign of Kings forums, but UNSURPRISINGLY I was blocked from doing so.

Bad enough that Steam is automatically refuting my refund requests, but I've emailed you FOUR TIMES.

GIVE. ME. BACK. MY. ♥♥♥♥ING. MONEY.

This game single-handedly made me skeptical of Early Access games. When I bought it, it had so much promise: a lot of fun features, a great premise, and the description made you believe that the game would be great! I even bought the 4-pack so I could share the experience with my friends. When I first tried it, I think it was still in Alpha and not a lot of the features were there and/or didn't work right. I figured I'd give it some more time and try and come back. I waited a few months and when I came back to look at the game's progress, the game had received overwhelmingly negative reviews and said the game was abandoned by the devs. I figured I was still skeptical of that and I tried to play it again. If there was any progress, it didn't feel like there was. The game felt just as clunky as it had been months before. I've since never come back to this game and I don't think I ever will. It was a rip-off then, it's a rip-off now, and it will always be a rip-off. Other terrible games have been removed from Steam by the devs. I think they should do a mercy and just pull this one from the store as well.

Unfinished, buggy, and not even worth the $2 it is on sale for right now. Steam just needs to refund this scam game and remove it from its game listings all together.

Calling this a game would be an insult to games everywhere. This is an unfinished abomination that showed promise during its time in early access. This was all just a scam to get people to give the developers money. Once they felt they took all the money they could, they abandoned this steaming pile and moved on to repeat the process on another game. This thing should be removed from Steam, refunds should be given to anyone who paid money for this, and the developers should be banned from ever using Early Access again.
