Terraria heading to PSN and XBLA early next year

Eurogamer: Remember Terraria, the really popular 2011 indie game that's a bit like a 2D version of Minecraft but not really that similar? It's coming to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade early next year. That's courtesy of 505 Games and developer Engine Software. The one-man band that made Terraria originally, Andrew Spinks, doesn't appear to be directly involved, but he did supply a happy quote in the press release, so maybe he's overseeing production. (PS3, Terraria, Xbox 360)

Its great more people will be able to play it but the cursor will be hard to use with an analog stick.

I got a Hori T.A.C.3, for my PS3, so as long as there's a cursor speed adjustment, I'm golden.

Amazing game, though I can't imagine it being as nice to play with a controller. Interested to see how they make it work.

So he can let another developer do a PSN/XBLA release and even work with them but he dosen't want another person to continue the PC version or even work on it himself.

Instead he'd rather use the "family excuse" and stop working on the game even though he apparently only worked 4 hours a few days on the game while working from home, while his new born son is just in the next room. I mean I don't understand how you can use the family excuse when you only work a few hours a week, at home while your son is probably right next to you. Some dads have to work two jobs when they have a baby and are hardly ever home to see there new born son/daughter...THAT'S when you can use the family excuse not when you work for yourself, work small hours, work from home and probably could work on the game while holding your son at the same time. Sorry to be blunt it's basic logic...

This game could of been more amazing if he stuck by the promises he made us on the fourm...so many ideas he had that would of been great to see.

Why dosen't he just let someone continue his work...I honestly think he's ticked off over Starbound and how he's been left out of the loop on that.

Family is more important than video games. If the guy makes enough money, only works a few hours a week and gets to stay at home with his kid, that's something most guys would LOVE to do. Why would you give your child half assed attention just to please some guy on a forum? Come on Carl_Shocker, there's more to life than video games, this guy can see that, you should as well.

Oh my god...look at this logicaly

Before his child he worked on Terraria 4-5 hours a day...2/3 days a week. Thats basicaly 6-9 hours of work a week.

I understand taken some time off but it's not like you have to cancel your updates and stop developing it anymore.

He works at home, his child is most likely in the next room from him, if he wants to see him he can get up from his office chair and go into the next room and see his newborn son.

Most dads don't get that lucky, they have to work two jobs and hardly ever see their son. He could work on Terraria one day a week for an hour or so and that would be good enough...it's not like if he works on it he's a bad father.

Besides you guys are so mis informed, did you know that he spends a lot, and I mean ALOT of time on Diablo...yeah, spending a crap load of time on an MMO is fine but spending it on finishing off the updates you mentioned to your loyal fanbase who got you where you are today is a big no no because you would be neglecting your child....but again Diablo is fine.

Hell the childs cot could be placed right next to his work space, he could literaly look and watch his child while he's working.

Honeslty man...look at this logicaly

Logically lol? The only logic that should make sense to you is if this guy says he's too busy with the family, than he's too busy. It's not up to you, me or anyone else to dictate how another person's family/work time should be divied up. If he chooses to play Diablo in his free time rather than continue work on a game than so be it.

Check out some of the mods.

Awesome this game beats minecraft in every-way possible. It was hard enough to stop playing on the PC this is a great step for this game.

If someone could bring Amnesia: Dark Decent or the new game to console that would be absolutely perfect!
