So ya this game is super cheap right now on steam 
 
 
Its kinda like minecraft..kinda err..well its super hard to explain. The game came out a bit ago and the dudes making it have gone crazy adding stuff. Constant updates more content non stop. See below for their next patch that well..I do think game out today.   
 
  

  
 
    I have played a nice bit of it and enjoyed it a lot!  From the looks of it the makers have lots of ideas and will keep rolling out the updates.

I picked it up when they accidentally put it on sale for 2.50 a while ago. I proceeded to spend a shit-ton of time playing it.

It was neat, and I was proud of what I build, but the game is as free-form as it first appears. If you want to get any cool stuff then you have to do VERY specific things, many of which are not very much fun.

If you are like me and want to spend a dozen hours developing an elaborate mining system, then there is a good time to be had in here. Just don't expect Bethesda levels of freedom.

Sorry, this doesn't qualify as thread hijacking does it?

Nope it does not count as thread jacking. Getting stuff can take time. But its fun to slap around bosses with high level gear later on.

My body is ready... for more Terraria.

For $2.50, it's a goddamn steal! And the update is supposed to be substantial. I can't wait to start mining for craft again.

I paid 5 and got nearly 70 hours in it a while back. Totally worth it at that price, and mega worth it at this one. I like it a lot more than minecraft and was able to actually get into it. I was thinking about starting a new world when this came out, but I think I'll wait a few weeks in case there's a quick patch to fix things they might have missed or balance tweaks with all this new content.

That's a whole lot of awesome, for a whole lot of cheap.

@Dalai: My issue isn't that it takes time to get stuff. What bugs me is that you have to play in a specific way. I spent ages exploring horizontally, but you literally can't do anything until you mine. Then after a little while mining you can't do anything until you go kill things. Then you have to spend a bunch of time in Hell. Then you have to go kill something else. For a game that could be about doing your own thing, it seems awfully linear.

Steam says that I've played 28 hours of this game, and I'm pretty sure those hours were just spent on two separate 14 hour occasions...

I'm a little averse to going back, mainly because all of those hours were spent in a world that my friend hosted so I won't be able to check out my/our sweet hilltop house with rooftop greenhouse and adjacent skycastle without dragging him back as well.

Then again that might not be too hard :)

Edit: Ok make that 30 hours played.

I put about 60 hours into this game and I regret nothing. Me and a buddy built some great shit, went on some little adventures and it was a lot of fun. I want to jump back in for the new update, but I dont know if this game can still hold my attention. It gets a bit old after awhile.

That update looks awesome, I need to convince my friends to start playing this again.

I think you replied to the wrong duder, but I'll try to respond.

You're right about the game limiting what you can do until you beat the various bosses. There is a level of progression in the game that might be annoying to some who are looking for a pure sandbox, but I think they tried to add progression to make it an actual game. The ultimate reward at the end is the freedom to do what you want afterwards without boundaries.

@Dalai: So I did. Mis-click fail :)

It's a weird mix of sandbox and linearity, and I can see how somebody could really enjoy what the game actually is. It just wasn't quite what I wanted it to be.

great game, by far worth 2.50.

Alright terraria... I give. I've never played it yet and its been a while since I've been into minecraft. This seems like as good as time as any to try it out.

NOBODY TRY TO STOP ME! I'M A WILD MAN ABOUT TO DROP 2.50 ...I'M OUT OF CONTROL! NO SUDDEN MOVEMENTS!

I only played it for a few hours when I first got it but the game is absolutely worth it at full price as well.
