WTF is Terraria?

Unadvertised game is the 4th most popular Steam game on only its third day

As you read this, four times as many people are playing this game on Steam today than are playing Valve’s latest blockbuster release Portal 2.  It sold an estimated 50,000 copies in its first day of release. What is this game, and where did it come from?

Devlopment of Terraria was led by the 4-man team of Creator and Programmer Andrew Spinks, Production Assistant Jeremy Guerrette, and Graphic Designers Finn Brice and Gabriel Henrique Kiesshau beginning in January of this year.  Here’s the description from its Steam store page:

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?

Key features:

  • Sandbox Play
  • Randomly generated worlds
  • Free Content Updates

It’s similar to the hugely-popular Minecraft minus the 3rd dimension, but plus seemingly unlimited crafting. The game is undoubtedly addictive and fun.  We’ll be bringing you more Terraria info in the coming days, but for now, we leave you with the official trailer:
