OMG. OMG. OMG. Before I hyperventilate…. Yes, Engine Software and Re-Logic have just announced Terraria Otherworld. The pre-alpha work looks amazing as you can see in the video. I am instantly in love with the color scheme, the glow, ‘glitter’ and the new array of graphics with the same familiar Terraria feel. The game is going to continue with the sandbox adventure but with a greater RPG and strategy base. For me, I can’t put the first Terraria down! I’ve had it on my Vita since it’s first download. I love building, fighting and… dying. The challenge of trying to recoup from your death and refortify your defenses or build stronger weapons to finally defeat an enemy (who has already killed you 26 times) is one of those thrills that you can only get from video games. Add a dark, mysterious theme to it and you’ve just made gold.
Married with Jonathan van den Wijngaarden’s music (who also composed the soundtrack for Kick and Fennick), it’s sure to be an even greater success than the original Terraria. I hope we can get some more information from the upcoming GDC next month. I guess we will all wait in anticipation as the only thing missing from this announcement is a release date!
