Sorry if this is a double topic of an original topic, couldn't find another Terraria topic.

Untitled Terraria - Steam

So a "mini-Minecraft" has hit the scenes on Steam and wanted to see if anyones bought it yet? I've seen some videos on YouTube and that one video on Steam itself and it looks pretty good and at £5.99 (I don't know about the prices for other countries) it sounds like a steal. I'm thinking of picking this up, but then there's Minecraft to consider.

So what do you guys think?

Information about the game:

About the Game
Dig, fight, explore, build! Nothing is impossible in this action-packed adventure game. The world is your canvas and the ground itself is your paint.
Grab your tools and go! Make weapons to fight off a variety of enemies in numerous biomes. Dig deep underground to find accessories, money, and other useful things. Gather resources to create everything you need to make the world your own. Build a house, a fort, or even a castle. People will move in to live there and perhaps even sell you different wares to assist you on your journey.

But beware, there are even more challenges awaiting you... Are you up to the task?

Terraria is more action based than Minecraft. One can conceivably own both games and enjoy them in their own ways. Minecraft is more fun on your lonesome than terraria, though I imagine both are pretty fun playing with friends.

I bought it on release, having heard about it a few days prior.

That's kinda how I felt towards it too, looking at some videos on YouTube it seems more like an action/adventure based game compared to Minecraft, but I think it does steal a few elements from Minecraft, but it looks like a brilliant game in its own right and with the "Blood Moon", I feel it gives it a scarier feel to it compared Minecraft's creepers and skeletons. :P

I'll see if I can download it at some point.

Both of the games are different. Terraria is more adventure-based while Minecraft is more-or-less Legos in video game form. Both games are enjoyable as they are. I joined on the Terraria bandwagon because Terraria is what I thought Minecraft would be; a game about adventuring and building structures.

The only thing stopping me from getting it is the number of enemies that just constantly come at you. Would annoy me fairly quickly.

The animates wierd and I don't really like the premise. It just sounds like it would get boring after a while.

@Mickeymac I think that's what happened to Minecraft too a little bit. It's alright for a little while but doing the same thing again gets a little repetitive, but I'm sure playing with friends, building stuff, gathering resources and doing stuff together must be a fairly fun, but again this can only last for so long.

Terraria is what you make of it, I would say that is the premise. At first I thought it was a Minecraft clone, and a glorified world editor. Really there is some meat to this game, it's definitely action oriented gameplay once you clash with the monsters. I wouldn't recommend playing alone, there is a stiff challenge and a learning curve that varies depending upon your interest in online research. I play to fight zombie hordes during the Blood Moon, to survive Soul Eater attacks in the depths of the Corruption, and for a chance to open a chest with rare supplies and armaments. All this from a game which is a system light as it is content heavy.

Looking at videos on Youtube, it looks like a solid game and very well made and playing with friends looks like a lot of fun. I think this is how Minecraft should've been really, unfortunately it's just, as someone else stated, lego blocks in a game.

The amount of fun you can have building a home, digging underground, collecting resources, fighting massive monsters and becoming a zombie fighter in what seems to be quite a low demanding game, if you look at the specs needed, pretty much everyone can run it, but the amount of content is incredible.

Kind of reminds me of Monster Hunter in some ways, it looks boring on the surface, but delve deeper and it's just wonders after wonder. I'll have to see if I can download this game, I WANT IT! D:

Minecraft is still in Beta!

I'm not liking it how people are calling it a Minecraft clone. It is so much more than Minecraft, and If Terraria is its competition, they will both be great sandbox games.

@Aviator I thought Minecraft was out of the beta session now? Nevermind then, hopefully they'll improve it a lot more before the "final" version is ready.

Been watching some Terraria gameplay and I'm still a bit iffy about the game, still in two minds as to whether to buy it or not to bother. Here's some Terraria gameplay I plucked from YouTube, includes commentary too, seems all the Terraria videos have commentaries, anyways, THERE IS SOME SLIGHT SWEARING FROM THE COMMENTATOR. He's more-or-less posted a whole series of what he's done so far which you can find in the link below if you want to see some gameplay before you purchase it, or not as the case may be.

There's nothing really interesting in the first video, but the second video onwards give you a getter feel for the game and what its about and what can you do and what not, enjoy!

I have been playing this for a couple of days now and I love it! I wish they would release it for the 3DS, that would be awesome! For $10 you can't go wrong, and it's way better than Minecraft, IMO. Hello, lightsabers.

@SpoonyBard: Unlike Minecraft, this game is ripe for console/handheld conversion. But Nintendo wouldn't let them unless they're a big shot studio with millions of dollars, and even then, they'll need to sell loads to break even.

That is, unless Nintendo sort out their act and start making it easier for small companies to make games for the platform...

I'd expect them to follow minecraft onto the iOS at the very least.

I can see Terraria hitting consoles, maybe not the online part but most likely just the single player. I probably won't be able to get Terraria anyways since she thinks Indie developers infect your computer with crap... even on a trusted website like Steam. Good lordy, some people are just idiots to the internet. I'll try again at some point... I can't wait to have my own computer and my own credit card, blasted parents... and if your thinking I'm under 10 years of age, aha... I'm 17. T_T

I downloaded this a few days ago and I have to say, it's well worth the £5.99 asking price. It's full of content and there's a lot of things you can do and I still haven't explored the entire map, even on Small it really is massive!

I wonder if we can all get together and dig and stuff. :P

Terraria was developed on Microsoft's whatever its called code. So if it's going to consoles it's heading to Xbox.

I think it might stay on PC to be honest, this might work on consoles but I just don't see this heading to retail or Xbox Live.

I can see most people sniffing up their nose and calling it shovelware. :/ Also, I don't think they would be able to do complete software changes to the game, right? DLC, ofcourse, but not change how the game runs etc.

What is online shops?

The DSiWare shop is hardly ideal for small developers. While it is possible, they'll need to make sure they sell enough to break even. Plus, Nintendo don't just hand out dev kits.

Terraria is such a good game, that they could probably charge premium, and still sell loads, but their company needs to grow a bit before they can take it to a Nintendo console.

They could easily have it converted for other platforms, surely.
