    "Eventually grew tired of the Terraria theme of swords and shite, so I tried this game out. It's like the same, but with more futuristic stuff, new environments, and basically a more chill atmosphere. Most definitely will be playing this from now on"

    "Amazing 2d game! Most people are hating this game but I do not agree with them. I purcahsed this game and find it superb with its great music, art, adventures. and plenty of mods that means you do not need a lot of knowledge to mod the game too. "

    "I love it. Really. For starters, sandbox games are my favorites, so there is that. But the game is really well designed, very creative, full of surprises and cool details that make it endlessly entertaining. There are lots and lots to discover, to play with and to understand. It can be challenging at times, because there are so many possibilities and you want to try them all. I loved that I could reinvent myself as all sorts of mind blowing creatures and really shape my adventures the way I wanted them to be. Beware though: it's a major time waster..."

    "A great game for single and multi-players to explore an outer space adventure. The best part of this game is that you can create your own story to uncover galactic mysteries or colonize uncharted planets. It encourages your mind to come up with strategies to find your way through this outer space adventure. "
