Oh, Hey, A Giant Monster In Starbound

Oh Hey, a Giant Monster in Starbound

Dayshot: While the game already had giant monsters in the form of summonable bosses, this is an early test for "a huge monster generator" — yes, randomly generated giant monsters. That should make for some exciting exploration if or when it gets implemented.

Tiy, lead dev for the currently-still-in-early-access space sandbox game, tweeted out the animation recently, mentioning that the team is doing "very early" tests. So yeah, make that a very early test. The little poof that pops up when it dies does look goofy. Later, Tiy shared some isolated animations:

He also noted that the big Winter update (trailer for that below, in case you missed it last month), tentatively scheduled for January, is "very very close". Progress! Slow progress, but progress nonetheless.

    Fun game but as stated above, slow progress. Decided a while ago to wait until the final release version (or closer to it). That giant monster does look pretty cool though.
