Starbound - We have lift off.

Starbound begins with you fleeing your homeworld in a space shuttle, just as it’s destroyed by an unknown enemy.
With nothing to guide it, the escape pod shoots into space without direction, becoming hopelessly lost in a sea of stars. As luck would have it, the space shuttle makes contact with an abandoned space station and an adventure begins that will take you hurtling across the universe.
Starbound contains both quests and story driven missions, buried inside its vast sandbox universe.

The plantes
Planets in Starbound are entirely procedurally generated and filled to the brim with unique content.
We went into the planet generation with one simple goal: no two planets should be the same.
By procedurally generating even the smallest details, we’re doing just that. Not only is the terrain of the planet procedurally generated, but the weather, the gravity, the difficulty level, the plant life, the behaviour and appearance of alien creatures, and much more all contain random or procedurally generated elements.

The sandbox
Exploring is wonderful, but everyone needs a place to call their own. That’s why we’re letting you claim an entire planet!

When you claim a planet as your new homeworld, a whole new aspect of gameplay opens up. Everything that makes a planet unique is at your command.
Feel like changing the weather? Build a weather centre! Don’t like the terrain? Terraform it! Every aspect of the planet is under your control.
Once you’re happy with it, start populating it with characters you’ve met in your travels and take care of them! They’ll have needs and desires and won’t hesitate to ask for your help if they require assistance.

TLDR

- Explore and build in an adventure encompassing whole worlds.
- This is not terraria 2
- It will have much more advanced world generator.
- It will have building elements
- the game will be both a sandbox and story driven.

Looks interesting!  Story driven is definitely a plus in my books.

It has penguins. That is sufficient. And what appears to be...an emperor penguin?

Are the ponies these kinds of "ponies"? Or these correctly portrayed ponies? Hopefully the latter.

At least my pony doesn't have grotesquely enlarged eyes.

I understand that it is NOT Terraria 2, but is there any possibility it's a paid expansion?

Doubt it. I mean, it's got a different aesthetic altogether.

Kind of reminds of Commander Keen. Anyways, while it's totally their prerogative to go with a new game, "advanced map generation" is something I've wanted in Terraria since Day 1.

I don't think that this if from re-logic. Sure, Tiyuri(the spriter) is there, but Red(the coder) isn't afaik, so it's probably just another project that Tiyuri is working on. And about having ponies... I'm not sure about that(not that I care), but I think that it was only a joke post of Tiyuri, since he posted

Quote
"Tiyuri Tiy
One of my team mates made this this morning... god help me"

And just after that posted

Quote
"Tiyuri Tiy
The real one :P "

Anyway, I'm really looking after this game, it seems that's gonna be as awesome(or even more) than terraria, and I really love terraria  :D
