Video games have a widely available launch during the beta phase of the game is happening more and more each month it feels like. The latest game to release in an un-completed stage is the new world building 8-bit game Starbound. After the jump is a trailer that features gameplay and highlights the excellent soundtrack.
Starbound visually looks similar to another world-building game, Terraria, which is to say that Starbound has a really nice 8-bit graphics look, and that soundtrack sounds so good.
Starbound will be releasing in beta stage later today, but if you want to get a few extra goodies to go with the game, you are going to want to pre-order it ahead of time.
