Starbound sells over one million copies, and that is just for the beta version

Starbound developer Chucklefish announced via Twitter that over one million copies of Starbound have been sold. The game is still technically in beta, which has been available since December 4th on Steam via the Early Access program.

That’s great news for a new indie studio trying to get its footing, which I am sure has much thanks for the Steam Christmas Sale for driving interest and revenue.

The procedurally generated 2D open-world adventure is still up on Steam Early Access, so if you didn’t grab it during the holiday sales, it’s still just $15. You can also grab it off their official website, with different package tiers available that range from $15 to $75 (there are still some of the $2000 tier packaged left as well, if you got that dough).
