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…

Feature: Welcome to Planet Loot

Pixel Privateers review

To FTL what Aliens is to Alien, Pixel Privateers [official site] is a lost-in-space roguelikeish that's focused on interplanetary ground missions and loot-showers rather than interstellar survival. Though its title and appearance suggest cynical faux-retromancy, underneath that mercenary skin there's plenty going on.

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…

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

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…

Terraria Adds Snowmen, Shivs And Santa

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…

Terraria To Give Gravity The Boot

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…

Earthenware: Terraria Update Adds Stuff

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…

Take Your Pick: Terraria Released

2D-Minecraft-except-not Terraria has been been released! More than that, it managed to sell 50,000 copies on its first day of release. If you have six pounds you can buy the game here here and also begin having fun whenever you please. Remarkable! ...the temptation is to leave this post there and go back to playing The Witcher 2, but I shall resist. I've been trained…
