Terraria, a 2D multiplayer Minecraft

Terraria Online, out today, is a side-scrolling action and exploration game where you can build, dig and fight: think Minecraft meets Metroid. The game-worlds are randomly generated, and you can play together with friends. Keep an eye out for it at Steam for ten bucks. [via Indie Games]


  1. Firing up Steam on my Mac and searching for Terraria proves what I suspected: it’s Windows-only.

    That’s too bad.

  2. I have a mac as well, but luckily I’m dual booted, the game runs perfectly, and is dead brilliant in design. This might be a bit of a monologue but after playing about half an hour i realized just how well this game was designed. The game mechanics are explained non forcefully and it leaves you mostly to discover the world out on your own, while nudging you in one direction or another. Like Super Mario Brothers, as you run right in Mario there are little incentives to help you investigate your jumping, because that’s the fun part of the game, a coin here to help you learn you can get a boost in height from paratroopas and the like, this game generates this effect by making sure you know what you have, what you can build with what you have, and buy building and experimenting your knowledge grows. Big thumbs up for me, now let me get off my soapbox

  3. Cough, look up mac terraria in youtube, cough…….it exists, it works fine, I’d gladly pay for it if they’d put it on a mac for realz.
