Hot from the Press via Re-Logic! Terraia DC Comics #1!
Good Morning Terrarians!
As you know, we have had a series of Terraria merchandise for some time now - which many of you have taken the opportunity to pick up. From calendars to stickers to posters, toys, and more: we are working with Jazwares as well as directly with a variety of merch providers (how about those sick OneDrop Terrarians?!?) to expand our offerings into areas that will satisfy our quite diverse fanbase.
We will have more to share around that as the year progresses....but we wanted to take some time today to share what we feel is one of the absolutely coolest things we have had the chance to work on: a Terraria Comic Book with DC Comics!!! Join Calista the Dryad and reluctant hero Alistair on a quest against a terrible evil....or maybe just for fortune and glory.....
This project was truly a collaboration between Re-Logic and the amazing people over at DC Comics. From the art style to the story, DC was a pleasure to work with and the end result is a fantastic collectors' item that is equal parts awesome and authentic to Terraria. We sincerely hope that you enjoy it as much as we do! We are quite hopeful that it does really well - as we would love the chance to do more of these.
The Comic comes packaged with two Terraria figures (Platinum Armor and Dryad) in the same style as the existing toy line. It is available at Toys R Us online now and should be in stores soon if not already!!! To pick yours up, simply click the comic cover above to head directly to the Toys R Us page!
We are really excited about this collaboration and hope that it is merely...
Great news for iOS and Android (Google Play) users! We have good amount of fixes (below) going live today - these should make their way to your devices over the next 24h-48h! Thanks so much for your patience and help with identifying many of these bugs/issues!
Amazon users: We've been working with Amazon to fix a Heap memory issue that was in the game and causing it to crash frequently. Progress has been made here...and we are sending our latest ideas up to them for their reaction. Hang in there - we know it is frustrating, but we are going to get this fixed up...steady progress is happening, though we know you obviously cannot see that.
Windows Phone users: We have identified the reason for the crashes - or at least the general area. The game is being flagged with STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION because the RtlFreeHeap function has detected a problem. The bad news is that - in general - heap corruptions are not easy to debug because the actual cause of the corruption may be long gone by the time that the corruption is detected. We have been and are working directly with engineers at Microsoft to debug the heap corruption - but it is a difficult process.
This is compounded by some of the changes that take place between the version that goes into certification and the final Retail Release - which is likely why this occurs to you guys and not for anyone in QA or Certification.
All that said, the good news is that we have our latest attempt to sort these issues ready for Microsoft to check over again. No promises it will work, of course - this has been a really tricky one to solve - but here's hoping this one works!
Thanks again for your patience and support!

Greetings fellow Terrarians! Today we have two videos to feature that comes from Curse's 'Union for Gamers' YouTube partnership program. MrTheEpicNinja, as he's known on YouTube, put together some nice videos, the first being a Top 5 Pre-Hardmode Weapons video and the second explaining how to get the highest defensive loadout. A big thanks to MrTheEpicNinja for sharing these with us and as always, if you have videos you think should be featured, you can PM me here on TerrariaOnline.
If you have a YouTube channel and would like to partner with Union for Gamers, head over to our site and see what we're all about. Enjoy the game!
