Over one million have signed up to explore Starbound

Over one million players have committed cash to Starbound, Chucklefish's pixel-based sci-fi sandbox game. The official Twitter account for the game broke the news earlier today.

An ongoing beta is available to anyone who pre-orders the game. Over Starbound's pre-order period, Chucklefish secured over $1 million in revenue prior to the beta's launch in December.

In Starbound, players maintain a ship and are beamed down to randomized worlds in order to scavenge for supplies, hunt local wildlife and interact with the indigenous peoples of each land. Starbound also supports multiplayer and gives players access to a variety of different races and genders for their character.
