What's that? People want the Lusty Argonian Maid back? Better call in the Feisty Khajiit Butler.

What game is that a reference to in this first panel? I'm assuming Minecraft but all the bronze-looking stuff in the background makes me wonder.

Need a new partner? I VOLUNTEER!

I somehow smell a strip about you casting some of your fans to be your new partner :D

This is a comic match made in heaven! It's destiny calling! Plus it would make great drama material when Engie comes back with minette having fun with tentacle Jo!

Think of he traffic :3

@Nerfnow Seriously Jo, you can use minette just not make money off of her and even then other webcomics use trademarked characters in their comics (see SNAFU: grim tales from down below) the guy has been spik it for 5+ years and nothing happened to him.

Fish people! And minette COME ON JO!

Also, +1 on lusty argonian maid. Haven't seen her for a while.

Precious, precious coal. If only I'd find some titan.

Also, on subject of gold - it converts to pixels at a VERY nice rate. So it's kinda worth to dig up if you see it.

Also, kinda funny, but trying to put a cook spawner into the pixel scanner gave me a scanned pixel compressor.

[url=#user_comment_339352]@Geary[/url]: One person from terraria made this. He did the graphics for terraria, NOT the coding. But its not a rip off, just a gameplay genre thats coming more into the limelight as of recent.

[url=#user_comment_339342]@SteventheSlayer[/url]: It's kinda hard to rip off a game your studio made. Terraria was basically a warm-up exercise for Starbound, and a method of testing the waters to see if what they wanted to deliver would be successful.

Isn't it weird that i'm hyped by the fact that i don't know if engie is not around because she's really, REALLY gonna be in a game, or it's just an inner joke and she'll be back as if nothing has happened?

No problem Jo. Us loyal fans can easily fix your dilemma and its quite an easy choice:

Just bring back the Black-haired french maid or the lusty argonian maid...and your traffic will sky-rocket!

@Nerf NOW!!: lrn2wasd
;p
But yeah, in all seriousness, the last character I thought you'd pick would be a glitch.
I had you pegged more for a floran. Or hell, even avian.

Go for the maid. Starbound already has fish people, so that's close enough to lizards.

Terraria, Minecraft and Starbound all look very similar, but appeal to different groups.
Minecraft is purely for those who want to build. Terraria for those that want more action. Starbound is basicly Terraria for science fiction lovers.

Starbound is a "substitute" for Terraria?

*Deep breath*
Starbound ripped off Terraria.

There are parts of starbound that are bad and buggy?!

its almost like it was just released on open beta! or that it just released a whole slew of updates that improved it and that its going to release a bunch more in the future!

Explanation: After crafting the armors that require gold, it becomes almost entirely useless, while coal becomes more and more valuable as travel costs increase.

[url=#user_comment_339312]@ShrikeZ[/url]: No, Starbound sucks (for now) because it doesn't allow you to change your keybindings, so I can't play it. >:/

This is why Starbound sucks!
