    No worry, I have Toukiden, Bravely Default, hatching a shiny Gastly, FFX HD in a few weeks, and whenever I feel like going back to Starbound to occupy myself.

    Wayforward. I love you and Shantae… but you sometimes…. take too long to make your games… I want them now :)

      Better be late with a polished game than making it sooner with a rushed result. Besides don’t forget that they are a small studio and they publish it themselves.

    Aww, last time they mentioned this game they said it was almost done, now we gotta wait 2 more months? well… That’s fine I’d rather wait later for a better product then for them to rush it out because everyone cant wait 60 more days.
