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…

Huge Terraria Update 1.3 Arrives Tomorrow

Every time another Steam sale rolls around I always grab a few extra copies of Terraria [official site]. I like to hand them out to anyone on my friends list who doesn't own it yet. "It's 2D Minecraft, but with actual character progression and loot and crazy monsters and and and" I tell them. If you haven't played it yet, now is a great time…

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!…

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…

Edge Of Space Dev On Major Fixes, Terraria Clones

Edge of Space is yet another one of those reminders that game development has gone completely bonkers in recent years. Like direct inspiration Terraria before it, Edge of Space offers massive, bit-and-bob-and-secret-and-jetpack-laser-shark-packed worlds, despite being developed by an itsy bitsy team of two. It's also run the full gamut of crowd-powered developmental aids - from Kickstarter to Steam Greenlight to Steam Early Access. Lead developer…

Well Here’s A Thing: Redigit Tells RPS There’s A Terraria 2

Once upon a time, Andrew "Redigit" Spinks quit Terraria. He'd decided to move on to bigger and better things, mystery projects that beckoned to him from worlds far beyond Terraria's treacherous loam. Fans were not happy. They scratched angry words into many an Internet, but their cries fell on deaf ears. For a little while. And then, kind of like Gandalf in that one movie…

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.…

Far From Terraria Firma: Starbound

It was probably when the first screenshot from Starbound emerged onto the hazy plains of the internet that a law was passed making it illegal to refer to the game without nodding approvingly and saying, "Huh, Terraria in space I guess". Yes, it's a side-scrolling game with mining and construction, a similar visual style, and, yes, there's crossover in some of the design talent, but…

Dumpling Quest: Nioki Adventure

If you're still mourning the fact that Terraria won't be receiving even more additions, perhaps the appearance of a game that looks very much like Terraria on the distant horizon may be succour to you in these hard times. Take out your ocular device of choice and scan the distant land of 'unannounced release date', there in the valley of 'very early stages' you'll see…

Terraria Heading To Retail, But For A Price

Terraria, the absolutely superb Minecraft-meets-side-scrolling-platformer, is to get a retail release. For, er, £20. The digital version costs £6 at most, regularly dropping to amazing bargain prices during various sales, and is unquestionably amazing value. But £20 for an "Exclusive Collectors Edition" when it's a year old, in a box, in a shop? That seems a little strange.
