REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Starbound Sells One Million Copies, Even Though It's Technically Not Out Yet

We've just passed a MILLION copies sold. Keeping with the Keanu Reeves theme… http://t.co/TNw3BzVLjc #whoa

— Starbound (@StarboundGame) January 6, 2014

The developers behind Starbound have revealed that their indie game, available only as an Early Access unfinished game, has already sold through to one million users.

Starbound has, no doubt, been aided by Steam's annual Holiday Sale 2013 where it stuck to the top of the sales charts despite never getting a discount itself. Remember, Early Access games typically don't go on sale and as more and more users realized this Starbound continued to dominate the charts.

Starbound, in development at Chucklefish Games, represents another massive success in alternative monetization, publishing, and development where gamers donating to the project also got to contribute assets and more depending on their level of contribution.

We'll have more on Starbound as development continues. Keep it locked to GameRevolution for more and if you've been playing the game, let us know what you think in the comments.
