Tim might have to go and have a little sob into his pillow somewhere because the most recent update released for Terraria will be the last update for the game. After a successful but short run Terraria will see no more major updates. The developers will continue to fix bugs and do small patches but otherwise they are apparently moving on to bigger and better things.
In a statement to the fans of Terraria, Andrew “Redigit” Spinks said the following:
“After a lot of internal debate, we have decided that it is time to move on. My wife and I are due to have another boy soon, and I want to spend some time getting to know him. I also want to spend the time recharging and bettering myself as both a programmer and game designer. I have learned a lot from working on Terraria and plan on using what I’ve learned, building upon it, and moving forward with another, even better project. However, we are still planning at least one more bug fix for Terraria.”
While I joke at Tim’s expense, it is a slightly sad sight to see Terraria “finished” as it were. I have said it before and I’ll say it again the games depth and detail is absolutely fantastic and it’s well worth anyone’s money. I never really got into the game but that’s more my own fault than it is the game’s. However, what this new “bigger and better” project will be nobody knows yet. Colour me interested.
