Terraria is a small indie game developed by a team of 3 people. The game isessentially a 2D Minecraft, players dig, craft and fight. The gameplay is extraordinarily addictive as you dig to find new and better resources to create better items and develop your base. The game features a more RPG like system than Minecraft which everyone seems to be comparing it to with bosses and world events. What’s really astounding about the game is how well it’s doing, over 50,000 copies were sold on its first day, outselling (on Steam) huge AAA games such as Portal 2 and The Witcher 2, which can be attributed to anticipation amongst certain gaming forums.
