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.

Most disappointing EA ever made.
They quickly moved from EA to full release just to sell more copies without fixing anything like bugs, performance or adding content which they promised in kickstarter and roadmaps.

Even if you get it for free ask for a refund, uninstall and never play it. It is a heap of cat ♥♥♥♥. Bunch of lying devs.

I'm so annoyed at the developers I'd pay for them to meet me so I could king hit the lot of them and leave their pathetic lifeless bodies to rot in the gutter.

not sure anybody has played this game in the last year... either way... don't buy it, don't waste your money, the dang thing was abandoned by its developers about as soon as it came out... the game is not only horribly optomised, but it is incredibly boring. just another crappy survival game with some crappy theme put on to it to make people buy it...

don't waste your cash... if you at the very least want a good game, literally any other game on the steam market is better than this piece of garbage...

Starforge: You make up this nice dough with some flour, then you add chocolate with some extra sugar, top it of with some marshmallows.

Player: WOW

Starforge: Then you remove the marshmallows and sugar and all chocolate.

Player: ???

Starforge: Put directly into the oven.

Player: The oven isn't on!

Starforge: ... AND ITS DONE.

Pretty much the defining example of why Early Access and Kickstarter have very little credibility.

Don't spend your money on this game, the devs stopped all support for this game at launch. If you really have $10 to spend save it, this game isn't even worth a penny. It is so boring and a huge buggy mess.

It's been nearly 2 years since the last update


PRODUCTION HAS STOPPED. They abandoned this project and moved onto Reign of Kings.

Reign of Kings forum was closed off so people could not warn everyone to not support the developers. Now people who own Reign of Kings are ♥♥♥♥♥♥ because they're getting the same treatment.

Class action lawsuit anyone?

Do not buy this game.

I bought this game in order to support the development for this potentially great game. Over 2 years ago.
Unfortunately the 'devs' appear to have disappeared - or simply do not care about the game anymore.

Well... it's been 3 years. I've seen the growth and decline of Starforge, sadly. I'll be brief: this game had HEAPS of potential. The promised features, the ones we never got, could have made Starforge a hit, and it only didn't work because CodeHatch couldn't administer the funding received from their Indiegogo's campaign. Well, that's one part of it.

Another one was that they just couldn't muster enough spirit to break the news to the community that they were broke. Codehatch devs just left all of the people that funded them in the dark, while releasing sketchy updates with little to no content.

Starforge is "playable"... it just isn't Starforge at all. Do not ever buy this. If you are curious, download it and you'll probably spend, like, 10 minutes untill the lack of EVERYTHING makes you uninstall the game. It is quite upsetting that there aren't even mods to fix this pile of garbage.
