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.

I bought a founders edition of this game a long time ago, in hopes of supporting its development and release. Just about everything about its path after that point was dissapointment after dissapointment. Not only has Codehatch acted immaturely in terms of managing peoples feelings on the matter, they have moved on to making a new title with the money they milked out of everyone from this pile of lies.

If it wasnt clear, dont believe anything you read on this store page. Most if not all the features listed here are either implimented poorly or not even in the game, and never having been put in in the first place. When confronted on the forums about this in one of the few threads they didnt delete or ban they, responded with "StarForge was originally made up of many unique R&D tech demos, some of these meshed well together, others would cause major optimization issues, or issues with design. Unfortunately, some R&D projects could not be incorporated into the game for these reasons."

This is obviously a rather bold admitance to their deciet... seeing as no such thing is either stated here on this store page, and nor was it told to those of us who bought it back in its Early Access days.

Long story short? Save your money, dont make the mistake so many of us did. Because now I am stuck with a worthless game full of nothing but empty promises and no way to get my money back because I am outside the limits of the rather lacking refund system.

Bottom line:

This was one of the first early access games I remember seeing on steam.

From the start the gameplay was nothing like the videos.

Waited years on development to provide the game they portrayed in the videos.

Last update was one year ago almost to the day that I am writing this review.

And even though the developers false advertised their game, Steam refuses to refund money for this game because we gave them time to deliver on their promise.

In the two years that I have owned the game, I have not even put 1 and a half hours into this piece of garbage.

Unlike others, I did not let this game deter me from investing in early access games. There are a ton of really good ones with dedicated honest developers. So please support indie gaming.


However, DON'T BUY THIS GAME!!!!!

This is a warning to all that are thinking of buying this game. This game is horrible. I bought to when it was in alpha becuase I saw potential in it however none of that potential has been fufilled upon. The devs of this game claim it to be finished however it is the furthest thing from. The game has very few features and is buggy. The devs have even stopped all support for the game. They have started another game called Reign of Kings. I urge people not to buy it as looking at the StarForge game they will get all your money in Alpha and then leave leaving you with a broken, unfinished game.

Please for your own good

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME

Still waiting on the game to finish... because it is not.
I hear the Dev's just quit. Steam needs to remove this crap.
