As many of you know, we have currently been working this last month on Terraria 1.2.3! It has been a great experience working with two other programmers and I am very excited about how this update has turned out!
Yes indeed, fellow Terrarians! Just heard that Terraria for Playstation Vita is nominated for Vita Game of the Year by Pocketgamer! We face some heavy competition from the excellent Vita version of Spelunky and the most excellent Tearaway (among others), so do as a community should: go vote! (please?)
As many of you know last night I added upside down slopes to the game! Today Cenx proposed a challenge to the testers to see what they could build in a quick manner to show off the potentials of upside down slopes.... Special thanks to Rudoboy (Broken Castle), Aeroblop (waterfalls), and Suika (Death Laser) for their participation!
As you know, The Terrarian Times (TTT for short) has been the newspaper of record here on TO since its inception by TheEimas long ago. Since his departure, a new and energetic team of committed Terrarian journalists has picked up the torch – both continuing and building upon this legacy.
From the amazing comics to community news to spoiler synopses to “real analysis”, the staff at TTT goes out of its way to bring the community the news and commentary of the day. That said...I’m sure we have all wondered, just who are the people behind the paper? What makes them tick, why are they so involved, and what – exactly – did they have for breakfast this morning???
Well, this is your chance to get insightful answers to those burning questions and more! The staff at TTT is hosting an “Ask Us Anything” event here on TO. For those unfamiliar with AMA/AUA, it is much as it says: ask us any question you want, and we the staff of TTT will answer it. No topics are out of bounds – though please do try to keep it clean and respectful.
When the event begins, here is how it will work. Simply post your question in this thread, along with whether you are asking the entire team or specific member(s) of the team that question. We, the TTT team, will then select questions and answer them in the post below this one.
That’s it. To help you in your question making, here is the current TTT staff list participating in the AUA:
Dark Fire Wolf
The event will run from January 29th to Feburary 5th.
.........He was a celebrated author, having won the Laureate’s Quill three years running (which, to be fair, wasn’t all that impressive a feat, since barely anyone showed up at the Office of Terrarian Culture to submit entries). The Quills were very nice to look at—real harpy feathers, encased in gold and flecked with ruby chips—but he couldn't help but feel a little irritated that the stories and poetry of the revitalized city weren't being met with the appropriate recognition. .........So one afternoon, in the comfort of his flat overlooking the chatter and smells and bright colours of the market square, he decided it would fall to him to help his fellow citizens appreciate the written word. .........Yes, he thought, nodding with supreme satisfaction, the little shits will learn to love reading and writing.

.........My fellow Terrarians (ha!), it’s about time all you literary phenoms had your chance in the spotlight. .........This here is a writing contest. It’s my sincere hope that I’ll be able to make this a regular event, but we’ll just see how this works out first. .........You'll find below links to all the entries so far. Check them out, leave some comments for their authors—hey, maybe even submit an entry of your own!
