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 wish steam had refunds for games 3 years ago, especially for games like this. A game that promised a bright future over 3 years ago. It was garbage then, it was promising garbage that ended up molding and becoming another bag in the landfill of garbage greenlight games.

The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.

Avoid at any cost. Great example showing that all the Early Access should be limited to devs well known, who already have submitted a reasonable game. This piece of crap should have nver been allowed to be sold on Steam. Why it is still on Steam? No idea. The point is that Steam should have started a legal action agains the developers and get the full refund for this crap. JUst to teach other greedy scumbags that stealing from the community is a BAD idea.

What could have been an amazing game has left many disappointed, and that's being a bit generous in terms of describing the negativity targeted towards this game. Unfortunately for Code}{atch, this hate is not unwarranted; the dev team has abandoned this game, and the vast majority of features promised have either never been introduced or have been horribly implemented. Despite having an alluring trailer, StarForge is an example of a bad Greenlight game designed to generate as much revenue as possible by being rushed towards a "finished" state to sucker in more people into the lie.

StarForge lives on as a landmark on how NOT to do Greenlight games, as well as just being a reminder on how not to do games in general. Shameful business practices and careless attitudes leave StarForge resting in the proverbial garbage, and I (along with many others who were blatantly lied to when purchasing this game) wouldn't be surprised if this game is eventually pulled from the Steam Store.

The only reason this game left Early Access is because the dev gave up on it, then claimed it was complete as a means to milk yet more ill gained funds from the community. To say it is an unplayable painfull mess would be a severe understatement.

In fact. the community feedback was so bad that the dev deleted the ENTIRE forum and locked it from further threads being created. The few positive reviews of this game are either the product of extreme sarcasm or the fact people simpley forgot to hit the thumbs down button before posting.

This "game" needs to be removed from Steam entirely and for everyone who requests a refund should just get one, no questions asks. This game is the incarnation of everything that is wrong the Greenlight and Early Access and the dev should be made to forfeit all profits made.

The fact Steam condones this kind of conduct by turning a blind eye is nothing short of appalling. The more people who report this game as an unethical buisness practice, the better.

Bottom line:

Remove From Steam. This game and its dev Isn't worthy of further income. Instead they should be jailed and subject to the same risk of sodomy as every Steam user faces when they click on either "Buy" or "Launch Game".

A $10 reminder that CodeHatch as a company should never, ever be allowed to make a profit, ever again. Fraught with billions of issues that aren't even directly related to the game itself, Starforge is the poster child of what NOT to do. If I was a new video game development company, the first thing I would do is sit everyone down and show them what this sorry excuse of a game/company has done. Seriously.

I bought this game while it was in development, I paid $75 for the Starforge founders club.
Not going to lie, it looked promising and very well could've been promising, but they abandoned it and now it's nothing but a shell of what it could've been. Sad really, could've waited and saved myself $65 for the same failure of a "game" this is.

brought this in 2013 thinking it would be great once finished, it's almost half way through 2016 now, yet it's still not finished and abandoned.

heard they abandoned there new game too.

codehatch should be banned from steam and credits given to us who have been basicly scammed.

Terrible game, I bought this during early access and you literally can't tell any difference in the finished product. If anything it's just worse than it was, a complete waste of money. It has caused me to be hesitant on purchasing any other early access games. Trailer is deceiving, it's a scam job and the devs should be ashamed of themselves. I would urge Steam to remove this garbage from their store to avoid anyone else potentially getting screwed and also just on the principle of them being scammers. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME, A COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT.

Overwhelmingly disappointing that I put money into this game. The only positive this game has left me with is to never trust (most) Steam Early Access games. Hope they had fun with my money, because I certainly didn't with this waste of time.
