Description

Terraria is a two dimensional platform game of exploration and crafting. Players can use mines and picks to collect various items from the environment including wood, ore and even spider webs. Resources acquired from the environment can be placed or crafted into all manner of items.

The simple crafting system automatically lists any item that you have the materials to craft. First priority is to set up a base before night fall hits in order to protect yourself from roving zombies and eyeball monsters. You can craft many items for your home, including doors, walls, tables, chairs and beds.

During the daytime slimes roam the land and must be avoided or dispatched with a weapon such as a sword or axe. As you gather materials you will be able to construct more powerful weapons from different ores as well as armor to protect yourself.

30 monsters are present in the game including slimes, floating eyeballs, giant earth worms and zombies.

Building a nice home will attract NPC (non-player characters) to your house to set up residence. These can include a merchant to trade with and nurses who can heal your wounds.

Terraria supports single player, multi-player servers and player vs player combat.

Cancelled successor

The successor Terraria: Otherworld (a spin-off with a bigger focus on role-playing elements) was announced in February 2015. Instead of the Terraria makers Re-Logic, the developer was Engine Software who also made the first console ports of Terraria. In April 2017, the development team was switched to Pipeworks Software, the porters of the later console versions. However, the game was ultimately cancelled on April 12, 2018.
