Take ''{{VideoGame/Terraria}}'' and give it a more ScienceFiction based focus with space travel and you have ''Starbound''. Or as some like to say ''{{VideoGame/Terraria}}'' InSpace. It is developed by ''[[http://www.chucklefish.org/ Chucklefish]]'', an indie game company started by Finn "Tiy" Brice of ''Terraria'' fame along with several new faces.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Terraform}}: Clearing [[BonusDungeon Ancient Vaults]] provides access to a Terraforge, which in turn can produce Terraformers (provided you brought the appropriate materials) that can gradually change the biome of a whole world to one of the player's liking (whether that be a lush Garden or a [[TerraDeforming hellish Decayed]] one). Ancient Vault end bosses may also drop Microformers, which can do the same for specialized microbiomes like Crystaline or Eyepatch).
* TerrainSculpting: The Matter Manipulator allows players to do this on near every planet they want given enough time (though this is easier after it's been upgraded to dig and plop down material faster).

[[NamesTheSame Not to be confused with]] a Classic Mac game that lets you conquer planets to get more ships and destroy opposing races, nor with a ''Manga/LuckyStar'' fic aiming to parody ''Videogame/{{EarthBound}}''.

* MerchantCity: Something of a downplayed example with the various Avian Grounded villages (the ones where the locals don't really pay much attention to religious piety) - while other NPC villages may have at most one merchant to buy and sell stuff from, these villages may have up to 20. It's downplayed in the sense that these merchants' selection of goods are varied but not particularly rare, though you can help expand their stores through quests.

Players can get the sense of being in the middle of a busy marketplace when all of them say their "Please buy my stuff!" quotes as they approach. It's downplayed in the sense that these merchants' selection of goods are varied but not generally don't have anything particularly rare, though you can help expand their stores through quests.

** Technically though, ''roasted mushrooms'' are more efficient overall since - despite them needing 5 mushrooms to make on a open fire - they can be grown from a mushroom 'tree' instead of needing to be farmed. Rice wins in storage since it's 1 to 1, where mushrooms are 5 to 1, but with how high the uncooked versions can stack the storage efficiency doesn't really come into play.

* BioluminescenceIsCool: There's an entire bioluminescent minibiome that can show up inside snowy and midnight biomes. You can harvest the local flora and use it to craft glowsticks and furniture. [[FantasticLightSource Or just pot it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FireBreathingWeapon: Besides the ordinary flamethrower, there's the Dragonhead Pistol, which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a gun shaped like a dragon's head]] that dramatically opens its mouth as it charges up fireballs, and the Firestorm's Fury, a broadsword that has a built-in flamethrower as its secondary attack.


Added DiffLines:

* VulcanHasNoMoon: Whenever you are on a planet, you can always see that planet's moons (if any) large in the night sky. Or if you're on one of the moons, you can see the planet ''and'' all the other moons. And even though the local sun moves across the sky as you would expect, the planet/moons are in the exact same locations in the sky at all times, which implies [[ArtisticLicenseAstronomy some interesting gravitational dynamics]].


Added DiffLines:

* WrenchWhack: If a mechanic crew member is brought into combat, they'll eschew actual weapons in favor of bashing things with their wrench.
