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.

Every few years I like to look back through my library and stare at the half-formed, decomposed skeletons of (once) promising early access games I've purchased that died long ago, and far before any measurable amount of 'game' was ever realized. This is the most twisted and malformed of those skeletons; it stares back at me from the deepest recesses of my Steam library with its hauntingly apathetic gaze and eternal, skeletal grin. Even in death, it lives on as a permenant reminder of lessons learned and mistakes once made.

This game is a complete piece of trash, a big bundle of false promises and broken hopes. Avoid anything from Code}{atch in the future, especially their new game, Reign of Kings.

What a disgrace to the Steam Store that this is still available for purchase. Valve is implicitly supporting scammers.

Underdeveloped cash-grab trash. Arguably the worst purchase I have ever made. Not just for a game, but for anything at all.

I still look once in a while to see if there is an update, only to be depressed. Why wont Steam just refund us on the money we have wasted? It is like asking, "why did I give that bum money to dirty my windshield?." Please Steam, at least refund me the cash and take this game from my inventory.

Paid from prerelease 79.99 for this game. Thought it had good potential too. Unfortunately the developers basically release a piece of human excrement, and said "be thankful". Wanted my money back, never got it.

Game clearly has been abandoned and was done so it seems not long after hitting steam... Valve needs to start holding these companies accountable! If your going to create a enviroment to encourage eternal "early release" games and promote a enviroment that screws gamers. At least have some self respect for the players and hold POS companies like this accountable for what amounts to a bait and switch. The bait being a promising game and the switch is we made some cash and lets leave a 10% completed project and call it a "game"

Why is there an option to buy this abandonware in a four pack? Why is there even a price on it?

Don't buy this unless the price goes below zero.

I bought this game 3 years ago, and I am so dissapointed.

I'll give a little backstory on this game.

StarForge was pretty much a sandbox sci-fi game. This doesn't sound new, but this was back then in 2012 when the game was announced, this was a pretty unique concept. Hell, the graphics are still pretty good nowadays. However, that is where this game falls short.

The game is highly unoptimized. I understand the game world is massive (and is quite impressive for 2012) but it crawls to a powerpoint presentation whenever I move or turn. In multiplayer (which is now completely abandoned) it was less than 5 FPS. Yikes.

The game was filled with promises that were never filled, and updates weren't consistent. Dev team stayed quiet a lot during development and rarely talked to the fanbase at the time.

The game is now an absolute glitch fest. You'd think it would be like the trailer, but that one was, what, 2013? This is recent gameplay of the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI0210c1xPk

In fact, after seeing how unoptimized the game was back in 2013, I just quit the game and moved on. I forgot entirely about it until now, messing around and seeing the lowest rated games on Steam. Seeing this game on the last page, 2nd to last, I actually got nostalgic.

My heart actually feels sick looking at this game, knowing I spent money on something that was a mess in the end.

Oh, and the best news? The devs abandoned this to work on Reign of Kings. Which is equally as glitchy and abandoned. Nice job.

Stay away from Code}{atch (or CodeHatch.)

Shameless cashgrab by one of the ♥♥♥♥♥iest developer teams ever. Still in early access and there's no plans to finish this. Shortly put: the game sucks and the devs suck. ♥♥♥♥ off, CodeHatch, and take this piece of ♥♥♥♥ with you!

This had such a promising idea behind it. Really looked to be exactly like what I wanted, just off of getting Kerbal space program and trusting in Early Access this "game" changed all of that. It hardly ran but this was before steam refund policy and it was early in early access so I gave it some time. The next time I checked it out it was in a very similar situation. Suddenly I noticed that the game was no longer in Early Access and so I tried it again, practically nothing new and it still hardly ran with crashes quite regularly. Sadly I am not eligable for a refund because this is nothing close to what was promised and is hardly a game at all. This is just about the worst survival crafting "game" I have ever had the displeasure of trying and is my one regretted purchase on steam (I have other games Im not at all interested in but those are from Humble bundle/gifts/other give aways).
