The Pleased Giraffe update brings colonisation to Starbound


Discooooos innnn Spaaaaacccceeee

Chucklefish’s Starbound has received its latest stable release, adorably titled Pleased Giraffe. The big, major addition in this update is the ability to colonise your worlds.

The idea is simple, set up a house on a planet, place a colony tent, and a tenant will drop down to fill the vacancy. Posher houses will get you different tenants, who will then go living their new life planet-side.

On top of that, there’s been a whole multitude of new features and fixes: challenge rooms, improved bullet physics, and new bosses. The changelog posted on the Starbound website is bloody huge, so you can have a look if you’re interested in finding out all of what’s included.

Has Starbound’s lengthy development time put you off the game at all?
