it is a mystery, steam works in mysterious ways. It's unlikely as its early access but it is possible.

I seriously doubt it. It's doing well, and it is one of the few indie games that wasn't on immediate 10% off sale on Steam.

If it does go on sale, I doubt it'd be more than 25% off. It's far too new, it's already quite successful at its normal price, and it hasn't even been technically released yet since it's in early-access beta.

Yeah, someone told me that I should have waited to buy Starbound because I could have gotten it cheaper. They were wrong.

only thing you could hope for is a lucky Humble Bundle Store deal.

With Starbound in it? Not any time soon, lol.


With all the world there is to see, and all the thoughts to think, it's no small wonder our minds come to know boredom.

I pretty much agree. I only said that because the thought of giving to charity always stands a better chance to early sales than anything else :p

Well, calling Starbound a beta, even early beta, is a misplaced label. Mid-late alpha would be more accurate. So if your intention is to actually play the game and nothing else, I'd suggest waiting, and you might get lucky and stumble upon a sale. On the other hand, if you really like the game's concept and want to follow its development closely, then I would advise buying it now, since it's unlikely to go on sale, and even if it is the discount should be small, as pointed out here.
