    No demo but maybe a playable (if not buyable) beta.

    I doubt there will be a demo for this type of game ever.

    Take fallout of the elderscroll games by Bethesda, since these kind of games are so focused on the openness of the world, limiting it with a demo doesn't showcase the key points of why it should be bought.

    I would love to have a demo. It would at least give me something to do while I wait for the full game.

    Well, it's not entirely impossible that a demo could be made in the future (PC Gamer did it for Minecraft, it basically gave you 90 minutes and then locked you out of that world), but until there's an established customer base, it's not entirely likely, either.

    I hope so maybe it could be web-based but you cant save.

    Then again, that also means we get the people here who watched that...

    Honestly demos are great and can be very very useful. But at the same time, the dev's Lets Play does an excellent job of showing it off. If youre curious whether youll like it, you can just watch those.

    unfortunately, there is an unhealthy amount of people on the net who take one look at graphics and don't even think about gameplay. i see that happening with this game as it did with minecraft (although i kinda prefer those people to stay away if they are that short-sighted). people will start flaming the game because its graphics aren't FF13 quality. i do agree though, the LPs are great. the only problem is that that information contained in the LPs are apparently obsolete, due to recent changes and balancing by the developers.

    The old LPs. PBat's game is up to date, so unless the developers change it up some more we'll be current on the information.

    Well, and maybe im just a nostalgic old fart, but I think the graphics on Terraria are gorgeous lol, I love it. The actual players, to me, are a teeny bit bland, but everything else is quite nice. I took one look at the video and was pretty much floored.

    And I agree with you, if someone is just looking at the graphics of a game with no consideration of the gameplay itself.

    Perhaps once they move into late beta or release, they can go back and just make a demo version of the game, i.e. rather than a timelock actually create "another" game, but perhaps stuck on tiny, with just the first few iterations.
