Terraria Dev: “Time to move on”; Fans: “Nooooooo!”

By Craig Pearson on February 22nd, 2012.

What are you doing to those pixels?

Action RPG platform sandbox thing Terraria has seen its last major update. In a statement to the fans, developer Andrew “Redigit” Spinks thanked them for making the game so popular, but admitted there would be no more extra content coming.

After a lot of internal debate, we have decided that it is time to move on. My wife and I are due to have another boy soon, and I want to spend some time getting to know him. I also want to spend the time recharging and bettering myself as both a programmer and game designer. I have learned a lot from working on Terraria and plan on using what I’ve learned, building upon it, and moving forward with another, even better project. However, we are still planning at least one more bug fix for Terraria.

So no more additions, no new ores or monsters, or bosses. The developers will focus on bugfixes, while the huge fan-base clamours for a proper mod API.

Terraria Adds Snowmen, Shivs And Santa

By Adam Smith on December 19th, 2011.

almost certainly the best image I'll see today

Christmas has come early to Terraria, with a patch containing a Daddy Crimble costume, snow, ice, presents, candy canes and gift-wrapped blocks. Most importantly though, gangs of snowmen will attack, armed with knives, snowbombs and Tommy guns. What this means is that you’ll be able to decorate the world with lights and festivity and then die at the hands of Al Snowcone and his meltable mobsters. A cheerful video awaits you.

Terraria To Give Gravity The Boot

By Brendan Caldwell on June 21st, 2011.

You know what they say: 'Hit it with a stick.'
That’s what Terraria has been missing all this time – anti-gravity boots. Of course! How could we all be so blind? Walking around on the floor with a pair of regular shoes, like a pleb. So set in our small-minded ways. Well, you’d better get in on this. You know what they say: “Upright is uptight.” You don’t want to be uptight, do you? I didn’t think so. Best go below and watch the trailer for update 1.0.5, wherein you will see more delights, including Hellfire Arrows, the Dark Lance and some hints at some kind of alchemy business.

Earthenware: Terraria Update Adds Stuff

By Quintin Smith on June 13th, 2011.

If I'm honest, Dr. Bones is one letter off from my old nickname

Along with the new episodes of Winter Voices, Terraria is at the very top of my list of stuff that I need to try. Moreso now I’ve seen that the latest update adds everything from three new NPCs, to fish bowls and bunny hoods, to piranhas, jungle bats and two new rare enemies known as “Dr. Bones” and “The Groom”. Which, rather coincidentally, were both nicknames of mine at university. Is it still a nickname if you give it to yourself? I can’t remember. Click after the jump for the full feature list of the update. Phew, it’s a long one.

He can dig it.

…the temptation is to leave this post there and go back to playing The Witcher 2, but I shall resist. I’ve been trained for this. Some details as to precisely what Terraria is, why you should be interested in it and a trailer await after the jump.
