Starbound sells over 2.5 million copies

In fact, Starbound has now sold over 2.5 million copies.

“Thank you for sticking with us over the years, for buying and playing our game and recommending it to your friends and having faith in our ability to pull this whole thing off,” said Chucklefish in an update. “We couldn’t have done it without you.”
