Minecraft vs. Terraria

"People need to understand that Minecraft isn't a game anymore," claimed Andrew "Redigit" Spinks, creator of indie hit Terraria, "it's a genre." Of course, he could have merely been defending his own creation against accusations of being a Minecraft clone. But I think he has a point. A quick glance through the most popular games on Xbox LIVE Arcade will make it pretty clear that Minecraft is no longer the only blocky sandbox building game out there.

The story is too old to be commented.

I don't think the guy has to worry about Terraria being a clone of Minecraft....just a game which got inspiration from it.

Now FortressCraft....THAT's a clone

Anyway I know your basicaly comparing a 2D game to a 3D game but the updates to Terraria are amazing, you always get so much more out of them then the updates to Minecraft. The 1.8 update is good but I still feel like Minecraft is empty while Terarria adds a ton of stuff to find, craft or mess around with. In terms of updates and content Terraria always wins.

I think FortressCraft has moved too far forward to still be called a "clone". If you really want a legitimate clone of Minecraft, go play Total Miner (XBLIG) or SurvivalCraft (WP7).

With regards to the article; "A quick glance through the most popular games on Xbox LIVE Arcade will make it pretty clear that Minecraft is no longer the only blocky sandbox building game out there." That statement is very untrue. There are no voxel games in the XBLA. Also, Minecraft did not create the genre, it just made it more popular.

So wait... Does the article say "Minecraft is no longer the only blocky sandbox building game out there"?

Or does it say "Minecraft is no longer the only voxel game out there?"

Because, last I checked, "blocky sandbox building game" was a pretty good description of FortressCraft and Total Miner, whether they're voxel games or not...

MMMMMM ok so FortressCraft is a clone, ok i would love to hear what evidence you have to prove this theory, now remember Infiniminer was Minecraft's inspiration but we are not calling minecraft a clone of that, so taking this into consideration, please bring the evidence of said cloning on this post and we shall do what gynecologists do, have a bloody good look.

It's a clone of Minecraft

Infiniminer was inspiration to Minecraft when Notch made his own game out of it....now it's own genre.

Terraria did what Notch did to Infiniminer and Relogic then ended up with Terraria

To say FortressCraft is not a clone is ridiculous, theres tons of evidence it's basicaly the same with new bits and bobs added in....hell it's even got CRAFT at the end. I could go on

EDIT: Awwwww...someone is getting upset

Oh please do go on, this will show just how little you know about the game, like all the rest of the clone shouters, now please list the bits that are cloned please, oh and by your reconing Minecraft obviously cloned world of warCRAFT, which has the look, for a start. The name. The crafting.Levelling,XP,Most of the mobs are the same in both games,you can wear armour and wield weapons and you can mine ;)

Fortresscraft is a clone of Minecraft. I've never played Infiniminer though so IDK about Minecraft cloning Infiniminer in that aspect. Could be.

Shackdaddy8362114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

They are 2 completely different games so you can't compare them.

Without trying to start a little war though, I do like Terraria more than Minecraft. Just because Terraria has more things to do...

terraria is more of a "game" for sure
