MTV-'Terraria' Preview - Digging Deep, One Pixel At A Time

MTV:It's true that gamers can unite around a common passion for interactive entertainment, but that doesn't mean that we can agree on where we like to enjoy it. While the divide can trickle down to specific platforms, the overarching separation occurs at the top level, splitting apart PC and console gamers. While the games we enjoy on both platforms are many times the same, there are some that are developed with one of those groups in mind, neglecting the other one entirely. Since the most obvious source of this division falls onto how players control their games (using a traditional controller versus a keyboard and mouse) it's usually console gamers that miss out on the PC games, since their controllers can not accommodate some of the complex activities that a keyboard can. However, every now and then, a PC game comes along that is so wildly successful, universally loved, and just plain enjoyable, that it graduates to being ported over to a console. This is the scenario that indie devs Re-Logic found themselves in when they got the call from 505 Games who were looking to port Terraria. The indie darling and Steam mainstay is looking to make the jump from keyboard to controller when it debuts on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network this spring. (PS3, Terraria, Xbox 360)

everyone should be playing this, more re playability than 90% of the games out there by big publishers, brilliant fun and enjoyable game

if you like this try out FTL Faster Than Light on steam another great indie game

glad to see 505 Games porting this to console, they do a lot under the radar games that are really good
