This post marks the kickoff of a recurring news segment in which we will cover what Terraria players have done to make their worlds unique and/or awesome. Today we go retro with TO forum user Hazid in his recreation of the first level of the original Super Mario Bros. for NES.
Today we've opened a new section on the forums: the Database Section. The first forum in this section, Maps, is a place where you can upload and share your worlds with other players. We have made a Video Guide detailing exactly how this section works and how to share and view other players' maps on your own computer.
Please note that you can only upload a max of 10 MB. Please reduce your world size by compressing it with Zip.
To no one's surprise, praise just keeps raining down on Terraria and its development team. Gaming site IGN has put Terraria to the test, and was apparently wowed by it! The site reviews on a scale of 1-10 (1 being the worst and 10 being the best) on five criteria: Presentation, graphics, sound, gameplay, and lasting appeal.
Most thrilling to the reviewer seemed to be the extensive weaponry, gadgets and other trinkets you can acquire, in addition to the various monster types and sheer depth of the game world.
This just in from the devs: Terraria has sold over 200,000 copies!
It's been such an exciting ride here. You've all helped build a great, huge community here dating back well before pre-release. All of your suggestions have helped make Terraria the game it is today, and what a great game it is! We're all hoping for amazing future patches and further community growth here at Terraria Online.
Congratulations to the development team - you guys have earned it!
