thats a good idea, and yes, i personally love the old-style graphics.
It is possible a demo version may exist in the future. I would not expect a demo version of Terraria to be available prior to the actual game itself however. Post-release is another story.
I bet the demo will come after release too, Making a version that has limits might be good too, like super small worlds, not having the underworld and any other biomes, ect... Then they could leave those parts of the code out.

[16:31] <Blue|No-Qs> we are working towards an open release guys, no time to do an open beta. Trust me, the wait wont be long long, and you will have a great game that will receieve content updates constantly when its out.
I personally think it would be a bad idea for them too do a demo because when people are done playing the demo too its limitations blue is going to get more spam about when is it releasing....
Releasing a demo is like giving trolls some leftovers to feed one and when their done with that they'll just continue to troll more for better food.
So in other words: Give us a Demo and I can assure you, when we're done with it, people will be whining more then ever.
I think this is the right mentality anyways. At the end of the day, beta means testing, and its easier to test in a small controlled way, rather than getting the same bugs over and over and over again!
People will always whine. I mean, whining is like 80% of the internet right? (or 80% of whats left after porn?) And its inevitable. Personally I think the smartest way to do it would be to get the full game released. Those of us anticipating it can help spread the word and get people playing. Then, push out a small and simple demo. As a way to hook any stranglers. Honestly speaking, I will often go to a demo first, get hooked and want more. Perhaps im atypical, but I feel that having a demo _eventually_ is the right way to hook in people.
So by open release they mean free? Or there is a demo coming? I was going to buy this game almost sight unseen, but I do like to demo a game before buying it.
A 90 minute unsavable trial as an above example mentioned would be great. The excuse around piracy is moot, as the game is already available on pirate sites, but I would like to support a developer of a game I enjoy, I just like to try before I buy.
So bottom line, a demo would be great and would probably result in more sales from people like me who prefer to try a game before they buy it. Until then, I guess I can just try the pirated version?
How to demo terraria:
Basic answer: Youtube.
Advanced answer: Yoooouuuuuuuutuuuuuube.
you should make a terraria demo online in a browser
There's no necro rule, but there's a "lack of content/useless post" rule.
Guess who the one breaking the rules here is? If you answer "the necroer" I can see the problem inherent in the posters.
USELESS POST! I'M REPORTING YOU! No but really, does it really matter if you make a useless post on a thread over a year old?
You've got to be shitting me.
Please never use this forum, how did you even find a thread thats this old?
Theres no necro rules, but this is ridiculously stupid anyways.
He's obviously the jesus of Necro.
This is one of those rare moments where someone is smart enough to use the search engine but stupid enough to post on a year old thread lmao
Last warning for both of you, there is no necro rule so stop acting like it exists. Do you feel highly for talking down on another member for posting on something that's old? Get a hold of yourselves, move on, and get back on topic. Please and thank you.
You win all the internets for what you did.
WHAT? Who said we were talking down to him? I don't know but it's KINDA OBVIOUS I was saying he was the jesus of something that I don't find to be bad. Also the topic is terrible, how on earth are we gonna get back on it? "Yeh they didn't make a demo." THAT'S WORSE THEN WHAT WE WERE DOING! I don't approve of making fun of something like this like that. Really though, talking down to him would be making fun of him, I need some signal to make sure people understand me fully or this is just gonna keep happening...
What the hell is that thing...

You're off topic, period.
If you can't find a way to stay on topic, don't reply to the topic.
