Not really, it's a pretty big and empty game with 'things to do' in as much as you just sort of plod through the game picking up weapons and making crafting stations
It's definitely under Terraria where I'm concerned, there's a lot more 'game' to Terraria; Starbound, even with its quest system feels a lot more like an engine than a fully-realized game, it's so full of hot air.
Great game for the base-buildy types amidst us but for people looking for more raw content they're bound to find more of it in Terraria than Starbound
Starbound is more like No Man's Sky done right, and in 2D
Like a few others I'd really recommend terraria, I havent played stardew valley but everyone tells me they are quite similar and I know that Terraria can keep you busy for ages (im about 600hrs atm) and its honestly pretty challenging on expert mode so quite rewarding
ehh, at this point this site has became a boring porn board, but whatever...
As for terraria, it's totally worth it. It has a nice learning curve
you can build almost anything with a wide range of materials you can gather
your buildings will look like pixelized paintings rather than 3D buildings in, let's say, minecraft
the game has a great combat system with a wide range of weapons
game does not force you to go through every mundane step of getting a better equipement bit by bit; if you're crafty enough and know how to survive, you can skip a few parts
beating all bosses is not necessary for progress
NPCs have some actually good quotes and are in general well made characters
despite the world being closed and having borders, exploration is still interesting
And that comes from a person who has almost 500 hours on steam. It just doesn't get boring when you play it on multiplayer.
Oh, and if you're extremely bored, there's also a couple of really advanced mods that will bring hundreds of hours of additional gameplay.
That's interesting, I'd be really curious to hear why you felt that way about Terraria.
I had to plug mods into Starbound or it just fell apart in a matter of days for me, the game itself was just too streamlined and there wasn't enough going on-- fight monsters, get food, get ore, move on. And you never really change up how that's being done
After mods Starbound is a whole different beast, but that's after mods, and I've yet to need to plug mods into Terraria after over 400 hours. I assumed unmodded to be the name of OP's game
Do it OP
