Terraria (it's Minecraft, sideways)

It’s basically 2D side-scrolling Minecraft. It looks fabulous.


Snipped from web page:

"Dig, fight, explore, build! Nothing is impossible in this action-packed adventure game. The world is your canvas and the ground itself is your paint.

Grab your tools and go! You can do many things in Terraria: make weapons and fight off a variety of enemies in numerous biomes, dig deep underground to find accessories, money, and other useful things, gather wood, stone, ores, and other resources to create everything you need to make the world your own and defend it. Build a house, a fort, even a castle, and people will move in to live there and perhaps even sell you different wares to assist you on your journey. But beware, there are even more challenges awaiting you… Are you up to the task?"

This looks fantastic. Thanks!

I’ve been keeping my eye on this title. 255 players per server, with a lot more emphasis on combat than construction. It could be fantastic. At the very lest, the Let’s Play put out by the dev team has made it look terrific. A qt3 Terraria server would be an awesome thing, especially if we divide ourselves up into 2-3 ‘teams’. You have your side, we have ours. Suffer. :)

Oh god, this looks AWESOME!

Is it based on the Super Mario Bros. X engine?


Some dude first episode LP

I linked to that. It’s not just some dude. It’s the project lead and the production assistant. :) I’d say the true measure of the game is that by the time I got to video 10, I wanted to stop watching these things and start playing. The LPs go up to 25, mind.

That looks fantastic! Hard to believe they only started working on it this past January.

We cant play yet? Booh! Thanks for the heads up - looks very interesting!

I’ve been trying contact the devs to get my hands on the game to make tutorials but so far they have not responded to me.

Here’s a new video by DIYGamer:

This looks really cool. I have no idea why this interests me, but Minecraft didn’t.

I am buying this the second it is available.

Possibly because it seems they’ve been inundated with people begging, bargaining, and conniving to be allowed into the alpha.

I feel the same way. I played MC, didn’t click, but THIS looks amazing.

No doubt. But I did message them before the Youtube videos started popping up…

I want this. NOW. When is it coming out?

Do want…

The instant clarity of 2D gameplay and visuals may have helped there.

Just making sure I don’t miss this thread when it gets bumped with the “it’s out!” message…

Doesn’t hurt that it looks like a much better game than Minecraft, too. Though hopefully Minecraft will get more game to it.
