Is Terraria the Next Minecraft? | IGN

IGN: "2D crafting sandbox game might be your next obsession." (PS3, Terraria, Xbox 360)

All games like this look great but it's hard to beat minecraft and Deffo little big planet In the create world lbp3 I.feel we will see something amazing next gen

I'll tell you why it won't beat Minecraft....because Redlogic is a prick who bailed on his fanbase after promising them a ton of new features then gave us a crappy excuse to leave the game for good.

He then promised us one more fix for the game to get rid of some bugs.....never happened

AND THEN after he said he was done and was too focused on his own life, he works alongside another studio to do a PSN/XBLA release that's going to have more content which is exclusive to those versions meaning we don't get it on PC.

He wanted to focus on his new born son which is fine but he didn't have to quit the game, maybe take 5-6 months off but not quit all together. He has a wife as well when he made it out like he had to take care of it all the time. Put the cot in his office right next to his computer and he can work at the same time. Lets not forget his wife wouldn't have to work since he's rich after Terraria.

I loved Terraria but hated minecraft.

And any guy that chooses his family over a product that was sold as complete when it launched (and yet still had a lot of updates after launch) is a good guy in my opinion.
Root  +   741d ago
No you don't understand

He wanted to quit anyway because he made enough money but used his child as an excuse...even then the excuse didn't make any sense. He only used that excuse to seem all noble and that he's being a good guy....your comment proves that.

As I've said he could of...

Stop development on it for 6 months, told the fans "Right I have a son now, got to devote some time to my family, development will stop for about 6 months...I'll be back"

Took turns to look after the child with his wife, with him being rich they both wouldn't be working anyway so they'll have a ton of free time

Worked on it one or two days a week...not a lot but working on it a little is better then nothing at all

I mean the guy worked at home, he spent at least 4-6 hours a day on the game and apparently he only worked a few days....no father to a new family is ever that lucky. Most dads have to get 2 jobs when there baby is just born and hardly ever get to see their child.

Get what I'm saying...he was lucky and he still couldn't find time to develop it even by just a little.

He used it as an excuse because he couldn't be arsed working on Terraria anymore.

I mean he says he's done with it and then he's working alongside a studio to develop it for consoles.....oh I guess he didn't "care" about his son then....he could do that but he couldn't spend an hour a day on the PC version.

It was just lie after lie with him, it's not like he was working on Terraria 24/7. You know the 1.1 update which took 4 months to do, he said if he worked on it more he could of done it in a month.

I think he was just bitter because most of his friends/team left for Starbound.

@ root
holy crap dude, calm down. i played terraria lots on the pc, it was a very fun game. just because the guy doesnt want to devote his life to updateing one game doesnt make him a bad guy. and can u really blame him for making a console version? who doesnt want to make money. its what, a 15 - 20 dollar game? i played it for over 100 hours and i never even started the most recent updates. you're acting like u payed $100 and it was a glitchy incomplete game. get over it, move on.
Root  +   741d ago
@pacosanchez88

Oh yes "get over it"...every time something happens where a developer screws up you get people like you telling other people upset to get over it or move on....why the hell should we.

Seriously it's like you want developers to treat us like crap

@Root

Wow dude - the game cost $10. It was also on sale multiple times for $3.33 and even $2.75. How much do you think this developer owes you when you spend $10? How many hours have you played the game (sounds like a lot)?

I'd say pretty much everyone got fair value for what they spent...

If it was, it would have been a long time ago. It isn't exactly the new kid on the block. STILL - Terraria is fun and engaging, and I STILL play it with friends. But it lacks the Survival dynamic that Minecraft has, which IMO is a big part of Minecraft's appeal.
shadowraiden  +   741d ago
survival dynamic are you playing the right game it has a better survival and exploration then minecraft.
hylandpad  +   740d ago
Sure, there were more monsters. More environments and more interactive levels. Overall it was more fun. But I was never afraid to be out at night. In minecraft, you had to always be on the lookout for creepers and zombies. Even in diamond armor, you could still die to those things. After meteorite armor, Terraria became less about survival and more just about killing all the things.

Nothing should aspire to be the "next" anything. Always aspire to be the first.
Summons75  +   741d ago
Terraria has ALWAYS been better than minecrap. Quality, content, gameplay, everything is more appealing then minecraft.

And yes to justify the trolls I have played minecrap and its like its name crap.
grailly  +   741d ago
have you ever considered that you just don't like it?
Summons75  +   741d ago
Clearly I don't like it because the content of the game is horrid.

@Summons75

who pissed in your cheerios, bro?
Fragger2k8  +   740d ago
Notch, I guess. =P
kevnb  +   741d ago
its not, its already been out quite awhile on pc. Its a fun game though.
jujubee88  +   741d ago
It's so fun!
When the devs announced they where going to make a console version I was hoping for a VITA version.

I still hope that is the case because I want to play some more Terraria but with cross-game chat on the VITA.

minecraft craze will die by the time next gen comes out.

Minecraft will live on for decades unless something takes its place.

Well it sure wasn't when it came out a year and a half ago, so I'd say the answer is still no, IGN.
Terraria was bad right from the get-go because it leaves no room for variety, whereas Minecraft got bad because of patches changing the core focus of the game. Like TF2.
Coach_McGuirk  +   740d ago
isn't this article about 2 years too late?
f789790  +   740d ago
Yes.
mi_titan27  +   740d ago
I just wish there was an exact release date for PSN

Roots....you need to find a second game to play man.
Zichu  +   740d ago
I never really followed this game. I knew about it and that is was like a 2D minecraft. I bought it a couple of days ago and Im loving it so far.
phantomexe  +   740d ago
i'm looking forward to playing it.
