The developers at Re-Logic have decided wrap up their work on Terraria and move onto other projects. Developer, Redigit broke the news to fans on the Terraria blog , saying that he wants to spend his time off "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," he says. He's also about to have a baby, which tends to get in the way of coding. And sleep. The other member of Re-Logic, Finn "Tiy" Brice has already moved elsewhere to work on Starbound .
Sad news for Terraria fans, but it's had a great run. Terraria was promising on release, but grew enormously with major updates after launch. One patch made it 150% more difficult , another one at Christmas added evil snowmen and many more added new monsters, biomes and spectacular weapons . At £6 / $10, it's probably one of the best value games on Steam right now. If you like the idea of exploring the tunnels of a huge, randomly generated world, finding "megashark" machine guns and taking on giant evil eyeballs, you should check it out.
