Starbound out of beta, Chucklefish is putting together a second, separate team in the UK to work on something new.
Chucklefish assures this second mystery game will not affect Starbound development. In fact, Chucklefish is only at the concept stage right now, and is toying with the idea of a top-down, open world, multiplayer-driven pirate game.
The studio is currently hiring UK talent for this new team. If you're interested, send your credentials to business[at]chucklefish[dot]org.
