Terraria creator and grand poombah Andrew “Redigit” Spinks postedÂ on Terraria Online that the they have to finally “move on” from Terraria and would need to focus on their new baby boy which is due anytime soon. He also mentions that he’s going to take his “time off” in recharging and bettering himself as a game programmer and designer so that he can move forward to another, better project.
So far the only changes he’s going to make from Terraria is another bug fix and that’s it. There has been no statement in regards to opening the game to mods or what not however the overall community response is that of positivity and gratitude and of course, questions about the “future” of Terraria now that it’s creator is moving on to new grounds.
The move was pretty unexpected since the game just recently released it’s collector’s edition which carries the following:
- Physical copy of Terraria
- Pickaxe key-chain with the Terraria logo
- Terraria poster
- Terraria trading cards
- Unique in-game pet bunny!
Here’s his official statement:
The future of Terraria has been highly debated as of late, not just with the community, but for us as well. The last year has been a crazy ride! When I started on this game, I just had a few ideas of what I thought would make a fun game. I had no idea that it would receive so much attention. I want to thank all of you for supporting us and making this game’s success possible.
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.
For those that haven’t already heard, Finn “Tiy” Brice has moved on to form Chucklefish and is heavily at work on an exciting new game called â€œStarboundâ€. It’s looking to be a lot of fun, so make sure to check it out if you haven’t already!
Thanks again for all your support, and I am very much looking forward to providing you with something much better than Terraria in the future!
