Most people have been waiting for this patch, not to mention a ton of games have come out in the past few months. I personally skipped the last patch because I didn't want to create a new world for an incremental update when I knew this was around the corner.

Wow! That looks awesome. I love the new backgrounds. The colored lighting is cool but seems like it could be distracting but I'll hold off until I try the patch. Now I really can't wait to start a new character and world.

Yeah, the game as it stood just kind of ran out of content at one point.

Wow, I played this a while back but took a break from it. I will surely be coming back for this update.

Everyone looks so pretty, love all the colors. Really is 2D done right graphics wise IMO

1 million? Wow. I bought this game but never really played it, I guess it is better with other people, but I have no friends =( (who play terraria).

Deserved. Its 3rd on my GOTY list behind Deus Ex and Gears 3. One of the best exclusive games this year. Way more people should actually play this.


Will they go on sale for $2.50 again? I was seriously burned from the last time they did that and I didn't buy fast enough.
If you want the game buy it. Don't wait for a sale. This game could easily sell for $30 IMO.

That was a great trailer.

This is the issue with games that have no objective (see Minecraft). They get stale quickly if you don't love building things.
This game does have an objective: get better gear and explore the different environments. It's much more structured than Minecraft. The original game lasted me around 25 hours. It certainly has a lot more content now.

There goes my life again! I need to plan out what I want to set up in my world this time around. Those new bosses look really difficult now and hopefully will be attuned appropriately to the number of players in the world.

I was going to make a thread, but I'll just put it here. If you guys like Terraria, I urge you to try out King Arthurs Gold. It's kind of like Terraria meets Stronghold meets Team Fortress. I really think it's one of the best indie games of the year. Multiplayer only.

Anyways, love Terraria, but kind of got burned out of it once I got down to the lowest levels and kept dying. Maybe this update will give me more arsenal to fight through those levels.

I like the game but recently my HDD crashed and I lost my save game and since then the game got a LOT harder (in many places artificially harder) so it's really difficult to want to go back and start over again.

Funny thing is, there has been a loose objective (or if not that, at least a progression) of sorts when it comes to Terraria. There are plenty of places that you either just can't get to or are way too dangerous until after you've made better armor and weapons.

Minecraft also has an actual objective now, as well.

The game has about as much of an objective as any dungeon crawler or mmo. Kill stuff.. get better loot fight harder stuff get even better loot.

I only wish Minecraft had the content Terraria did.

1 million copies. Wooow.

That trailer looks good. They've added/are adding quite a bit of stuff since the last time I played. New bosses are pretty freaky, especially that wall of flesh.

Great trailer. Good to see it sold 1 million copies, well deserved for such a nice game.

Played it over 80 hours in 2 weeks after summer sales then got burnt out but will get back to it after 1.1 for sure.
