The indie smash-hit RPG of multiple trades,Terraria,is officially coming to the PS3 and 360 early next year, courtesy of publisher 505 Games. Seeing as the game recently cleared over 1.6 million copies on sold on PC, it’s not surprising that the developers would want to spread their wings a little more and aim for more success.
Of course, many of the original supporters of the game on PC are up in arms about the announcement, mainly because they feel like their purchase of a rather insignificantly-priced, one-time payment game that was provided with a fair amount of extra content, for free, on top of an already huge amount of gameplay is now worthless and that they’ve been slapped in the face since the game hasn’t been updated for a while. Kind of sounds like entitlement to me, but I’m not to judge. Oh, and run-on sentence.
Andrew Spinks, creator of the game, has a different perspective: “I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction.”
I bought Terraria a long while back in a Steam sale, played it for a couple of minutes, and promptly forgot to ever touch it again. Maybe this is the reminder I need, and maybe I’ll be amongst those enjoying it on consoles when it launches next year. What about you?
