For those who haven’t played before, Terraria is similar to games like Minecraft where you’re given the reigns to explore an open world. You embark on a quest to use the environment to create tools, build objects with said tools, dig down deep/build high up into the sky, find interesting areas, and play with your friends online; these are all things that you would expect in this genre of game. Terraria sets itself apart here by having the players explore the world in pixel based 2D. You move from left to right exploring this randomly generated world while avoiding zombies and monsters at night and annoying little slimes during the day. The game starts you off with basic tools to get started, things like an axe, pickaxe, and sword so you can chop down trees, dig dirt, and defend yourself. Pro tip to anyone playing, build a house first and foremost once in the game or you’re going to regret going into that first night without shelter.
