HandyMan Studios and Re-Logic have announced a partnership, to bring together the sandbox games Terraria and Edge of Space for an indie crossover event, which takes Terraria‘s Skeletron and cybernetically-enhances it to become the Omegatron.
The new content, which you can take a peek at below in the trailer and gallery, comes from an equal appreciation from either studio of the other’s game.
“I’m really digging the potential of Edge of Space,” said Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, the creator of Terraria. “If you’re a fan of my game, then there is a good chance you’re really going to love the insane monsters, wild weapons, and flexible creation content of Edge of Space. They are a great group of passionate developers and I am glad to get to know them, and it could turn out to be one of the best sci-fi games in the genre.”
“We are really excited to have this crossover content and we have some cool stuff planned,” said Jake Crane, lead designer and founder of HandyMan Studios. “Terraria has been a great inspiration for those developers creating massive, open worlds that put players in control of their destiny.”
The content will be coming to Edge of Space, discounted via Steam Early Access for $11.99 instead of the launch price of $14.99 (as of this writing, there’s a special discount on top of the Early Access discount, where gamers can purchase the game for $8.03). Players who get the game through Early Access will also receive the “First Responder Armor” that grants bonuses to assist in “those first waking moments” after leaving the crashed space pod.
Edge of Space is an open-world, dynamically-generated sandbox survival-adventure game, where players start with only a laser pick and some gear, and have to mine for resources. Players will take on “creative horrors” like rocket-enhanced sharks and genetically-evolved polar bears. Check out the game’s official website for more details, and Steam to purchase the game.
