I think it's time to make a new thread for this. HaRyu has been posting updates on this in the Terraria thread, but there's definitely enough information now for it to get a new thread so people can follow the news on this as it develops without sticking their heads into the Terraria thread.

All this information comes from Tiy's twitter account, and he's the graphic designer and sprite artist for Terraria, and he has confirmed that they are working on a new game which is not a Terraria patch.

Tiy's twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/Tiyuri


Information:
- No game title yet, they're aiming for release in mid-2012
- It will be a sandbox game like Terraria, but they're planning to have a main quest in the game as well
- There will be building elements in the game, and they're taking random generation to a whole new level
- Will supposedly be very different from Terraria, and is a mix of diablo, metroid, castlevania, terraria, pokemon, and some other brand new stuff
- Officially it isn't Terraria 2, and Terraria is still ongoing
- There might be an official announcement relatively soon

This seems closer to the Amiga classic 'Exile', and uncannily close in sprite resolution to the Amiga 1200 version of Exile. Terraria always reminded me of that amazingly atmospheric classic. (That I sucked at, but all the same..)

Here's a video of the beginning of the original Exile:

Edit: That is HILARIOUS.. when trying to post this message NeoGaf's server blew out on me and I received a Guru Meditation error. I used to get that all the time playing Amiga games.

Whats up with NeoGaf anyway tonight?

If you dig through Tiyuri's twitter, you can find some decent bits of info here and there.

His reply to one guy:
"It's a mix of diablo, metroid, castlevania, terraria, pokemon + some new stuff no one has ever done before :D"
It also looks like Tiyuri is producing this game, based on what he's posted on Twitter.

Looks awesome but I hope Terraria is still supported in some fashion going forward. I just recently started Hard mode and it feels incomplete and aimless compared to the earlier part of the game.

Okay, so apparently I am totally blind and read a tweet wrongly. Nirolak pointed out that he said middle of the year, and not middle of next year. So it's coming out this year.

He kind of implies that won't actually be in the game, and that the second horse thing is the real thing.
Either that, or we're looking at some very elaborate equipment/customization options for characters, and they're going to find some way to hide the copyright infringement deep in the game, like the Link costume in Terraria. Lol.
