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.

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

If you like broken games then this is the game for you, if you like games abondoned by their dev's and broken as well then buy it now!

What a mess this game is I have been hoping for a while they might care and fix some things but that is just false hope, this game is so bad it makes me look bad for having it in my inventory! I can't even get a refund! Do NOT buy this game.

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.

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.

Can't be played. The game crashes if you try to play it, there is no possible way this game can be played anymore thanks to what the developers did to it before they abandon it and left forever. Unfortunately, I believe that this game is an example of why these developers should no longer be game developers and people should avoid any game they produce, ever again, unless they rectify the mistakes they made with this game and give everyone who owns it a refund or some kind of compensation which unfortunately, is not a copy of any game they plan to release. This game was fun when it worked, and I had some good times with it, very small amount of interesting times. It had potential, and then the game devs up and left. Valve should have deleted this game from steam by now and banned the developers but Valve are still making money off the game so I guess that won't happen for a while.
