    I didn't see a thread for Terraria so I thought I would start one. The best way to describe it would be like a 2D Minecraft. (Edit: Wrong, The more I play the more I realize its extremely different from Minecraft) Its a fun game and a great time killer just like Minecraft. A lot more fighting and has PvP and teams/colors.
    Its on Steam for $9.99

    I set up a server to play with a few friends so I don't know to much about it yet but a sad part about the server is right now it only holds 8 people. :(

    Has links to forums/Chat/Twitter & more.

    This game has minecraft elements but is not minecraft. I would say it i more complex. Overall, I like MC more, but this is really fun.

    Didn't mean to say it was Minecraft but a nice way to paint a picture for someone that hasn't heard of it I think would be saying "its like a 2d Minecraft", But yes your complete right it is not Minecraft. Still very fun

    I tried it, somehow it did keep me busy for a while. Then I had to do other things. I might play again, I need people to move into my homes.

    Once I got the molten armor, the muramasa, the flamarang, and had killed the 2 summonable bosses like 40 times + killing skeletron, I stopped playing because there really isn't much else to do.

    I went deep, deep underground, and then "SOMETHING IS WATCHING YOU" appeared on the screen. I then used my teleport to home item, and this thing appeared.

    I haven't summoned it myself ever, usually my friends have, but I believe you have to be underground at one of those altars to summon it.

    It really shouldn't be compared to Minecraft, it is about building, but it's a lot about fighting and crafting gear, also it's half the price now and will be 1/3 the price with Minecraft is fully released.
    Conti027, FordGT90Concept and digibucc say thanks.

    Only can be purchased through Steam? :(


    I assume it is an indy title so I wonder if it will ever be part of an Humble Bundle. At the same time, $10 is difficult to pass up.

    I would love to see Terraria go 3D like minecraft. It would open it up to a whole new level of awesome. It still wouldn't be a rip off of minecraft even if it was 3D.
    I love the RPG element of Terraria. The color teams,the weapons,npc/s,tons of fighting,hunting down items,etc. just makes it awesome!

    But yes it can only be purchased through Steam.

    Game has a ton of micromanagement. I made a wood sword, felt like I accomplished a lot. Any tips and tricks for a newcomer? ;D Is it worth it to build a house? I dont see a real use..cept maybe if its protected from slime.

    You need a house. For a place to put workbenches, beds, etc. You will need to protect yourself when a blood moon comes up.

    I have a whole town. Once giant hotel structure with 4 stories for the NPC's, and a small 5th house for another NPC. I also have my house with double thick walls, and tons of chests, etc. I'll take a screenshot of it.
