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.

Pre-Release Review
As an owner of 800+ titles on Steam, many of them Early Access and an early supporter and investor of StarForge, having bought multiple Founder's Packs during its Alpha stage, this is no doubt single-handedly the biggest betrayal of any Early Access game I've ever financially supported. The concept had potential, but their results, effort, and frankly passion were complete garbage, right up until their so called "final" release (more like the final straw). Clearly they were here to run with our money from the get go. From here on, we will be tracking down the Devs and their future projects to ensure they stay blacklisted by the community. No one backstabs their supporters like these scum have done. Cheers everyone.

Just to clarify as others have asked - I have played longer than 0.4 hrs shown on my profile, as I've played offline and my other gaming machine before.

I now own 1,000+ titles, many of them still early-access and indies. My review and opinion of this pile of putrid diarrhea of false promises remain. Many of us early supporters are still waiting for what the devs plan to do to set things straight and make it up to some of their most loyal and earliest supporters. Shame on the devs for throwing their most loyal fans under the bus and leaving them to rot.

Pre-Release Review
First of all, haven't played this game in a while so it may have broken even more, but I've never gotten a crash error on it. IDK, could be the ghost in the machine or whatever, but never seemed to be an issue for me.

Second of all, I got this game on sale. I never buy early access full price unless it's been personally recommended to me (think Kerbal) and I have to say I am reaping the benefits of following this one rule. The game is 20$ right now, and right now that would get you put in prison sharing a cell with Butch McDick if you tried getting it from people in a retirement home by telling them that you're their long lost son James. Because that's what this game is in current form, a big deception. I paid like 5$ for this game and that was about the max this is worth.

It's not about the content per se, the content is def 5$ worthy. It's what was sold. If the point of Early Access is to buy into a game vision then this game just took a dump in your eyes because they sold you a picture of a Lamborghini and gave you a trike painted red and told you there'd be "updates". The Devs promised more and sold the game on it. Sorry, you don't get to walk away because it turned out to be more work than you thought it would be.


I wasn't as ripped off as many of the folks on here were but the deception is still the same. Save your money. If there weren't deception I'd recommend this game for 5 bucks max, but when you lie to the community, you don't get rewarded. Take the game down, it doesn't need to trap any more people.
