The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Sandbox spinoff Terraria: Otherworld has been cancelled

Today, Terraria developers Re-Logic have announced that they're pulling the plug on Terraria: Otherworld. First unveiled three years ago, it promised a more adventure-focused spin on the platforming/building sandbox mega-hit Terraria, with more of a focus on fighting, defending your bases, and navigating complex environments. The project has looked a bit wonky for some time now, and last year development duties changed hands, but it's still sad…

Terraria: Otherworld dumps old dev, hooks up with new

Terraria: Otherworld [official site], the Terraria spin-off due to add "role-playing and strategy elements" to the from crafty-o-fighty sandbox, has switched developers. Terraria creators Re-Logic were unhappy with Otherworld's pace and direction of development, so they've taken it off Engine Software and given it to Pipeworks Studios. Engine made most of the original Terraria's console releases, while Pipeworks are the gang working on mobile and…

Super Terraria World Makes Terraria A Full-Fledged RPG

Terraria [official site] has plenty to do already. Have you ever sat and just fiddled with it for a few hours? Interestingly enough, it also utilizes the same font I used in every report I turned in to my Language Arts teacher in middle school (it used to be called Mead Bold back then, but now it's called Andy). So you're forgiven if you feel…

Terraria: Otherworld Gets A Rethink

We've known that a spin-off from gazillion-selling side-on crafting/fighting affair Terraria was on the cards for quite a while, but seems it ran into some problems. Terraria: Otherworld is set in an alternate dimension from the original, leaned more towards RPG and strategy, and eschewed a pure sandbox structure in favour of a little more structure. That's still the case, but devs Re-Logic have revealed…

Wiring Wonder: Terraria Patch 1.3.1 Out Now

Although I've sunk over 100 hours into Terraria [official site] over the years, it's a game I seem to spend long stretches of time away from because there's just too many games and not enough hours in the day. Every time I return, though, I'm always pleasantly surprised by how instantly familiar everything is yet how fresh its updates make its sprawling sandbox feel. And…

Latest Terraria Update Brings Mac And Linux Support

Mac and Linux support for indie games is sort of like the rolling spaceship from Prometheus. Everyone thinks you can just get it out of the way but it's a little more difficult than that when you're actually in the hotseat. Terraria [official site] first launched in 2011 as an adorable and fun 2D alternative to big boy creative juggernaut Minecraft. Since then it's had numerous…

Terraria Otherworld Is Not Terraria 2 But Kind Of Is

Ooh, you don't see many spin-offs these days. Oh, right, Better Call Saul. Well, not in games. Oh, right, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm. Look, OK, c'mon, just go with me here. It's pretty unusual for a game series to divert into a spin-off rather than climb aboard the sequel treadmill. Side-on buildy/survival hit Terraria is doing just that however, with an RPG-inclined follow-up…

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Now More Jumbo, Adds 3 Games

Last week we wrote about the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2, because it was the best haul of games we'd seen in a Humble Bundle in a little while. Now that bundle has expanded as planned, and the three new games added are all good too. Pay more than the average of $6.62/£4 and you'll now receive Legend of Grimrock, PixelJunk Eden and Orcs Must Die!…

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Is Great: GalCiv 2, CK2, Terraria…

For the low, low price of whatever-the-hell-you'd-like you'll get space 4X Galactic Civilizations II with its expansions, side-scrolling undead violence-applier Deadlight and isometric action RPG The Incredible…

Boo(m): Here Is Terraria’s Halloween Update

Did you know that it's nearly Halloween? I'm only telling you because I definitely wouldn't have any idea unless every game under the sun (or foreboding, fog-enshrouded moon, as it were) was running some kind of Halloween event. But these things can actually be decently fun when handled well, and this one, especially, is quite noteworthy given that it may well end up one of…

Terraria Liiiiiiiiiiives: Long-Awaited 1.2 Update Trailered

Once upon a time, Terraria died. The end. That is roughly how I hope my posthumous biography is written, only my name is Nathan. I also hope my tale continues like this: But then, as if by sorcery or some really cool-looking robot parts, Terraria/Nathan sprang out of the grave and dredged up all sorts of crazy new features like a giant bee. Also penguins.…
