What if I told you a tiny indie team was going to be releasing a game that can be accurately described as a combination of Minecraft, Castlevania, and Zelda? Yeah, I’d be pretty incredulous, too, but that’s exactly how Terraria looks. But despite it’s fairly transparent immediate influences, it looks like an incredibly refreshing gaming experience. It’s like if you made Minecraft two-dimensional and put a much stronger focus on combat and equipment. There are even enormous bosses to fight!
Hyped enough? No? I’d recommend heading over to the main website and checking out its fairly lengthy gameplay trailer and screenshots. It’s pretty impressive stuff. Terraria will be releasing via Steam on this coming Monday, May 16th, and will run you just $9.99. I’m sure some of the team here at DualShockers will be picking it up, so expect more coverage of the game around here soon!
