If the makers of StarBound would release the source code for Linux, I believe that the Pi would be actually quite capable to run it. But it's a shame that source seems quite unlikely... Here's the home-page: http://playstarbound.com/

And I posted this on their forums:

I'm happy to help.

i doubt the pi has enough power to. since they havent said much about specs required i'll base it off terraria (some of the same makers and similar game) or even edge of space another game similar. while they look simple enough to run theres a lot going on and i think starbound would be harder to run than terraria since it's such a big game and as a lot more animations and such. but like i said they havent released much info about the specs so the closest thing we will get is maybe server software like minecraft and terraria have on the pi.

Its commercial software, its very obviously not going to be portable by us.
