Earlier today Starbound developer Tiy announced that the game would be going through a short development delay while staff worked with authorities to help track down a sexual predator.
In a second Tweet, he stated that the sexual predator had been a member of Starbound’s community who had been targeting children.
In a third statement, he announced that the delay is expected to have a negligible impact on overall development.
Another staff member clarified that the delay is mostly due to staff members having to report information to the police.
Some of us were set back a day having to deal with the shit surrounding reporting it to the police.
