I thought I was looking at a spin-off of Starbound, the graphics are almost identical :/

Don't see the appeal here to be honest. The more genres you try to mash together and the more games you steal... I mean "adopt" ideas from, the bigger the sense of "I've already played this!" becomes.

There is no such a thing as 'point of retro gaming'...



I am sure I would get it at correct price... as part of some bundle...

Yes, but I'm looking at something which isn't finished yet.
