    I would like to play another game where I can build and also fight monsters.
    Does anyone know of a good one? It doesn't have to be a retro-style game, just one that has variety.
    I tried Civilization V, what a piece of crap, they didn't spend enough time on it.
    So I am looking for one where the developer gave a darn, not just another sequel.

    King Arthur's Gold is a great game, which is both similar to Terraria but at the same time quite different.

    Civ 5 isn't a bad game, in fact it's a great game! But in no way similar to Terraria which might explain why you don't like it.

    I've heard people mention King Arthur's gold a few times, it seems pretty cool.

    Starbound and Cubeworld are due for release soon, Starbound will be at least remotely similar. Tiy, who did Terraria's graphics, is the lead developer.

    Tiy can code? Or am I missing something?

    how about minecraft, it has a bit smaller focus on the gear gathering, and you need to find the crafting recepiece all by yourself (or use the wiki) but it's great for building and digging...

    Hi there. I'd like to suggest you check out Dwarf Fortress by Bay 12 Games. It's an indie game that is being made by a single person and is still unfinished although absolutely playable and contains already many games' worth of content. It has two different game modes. Firstly there's the fortress mode which is for the moment more fleshed out than the adventure mode. In fortress mode you indirectly control your dwarfs who can mine, build, craft, farm, fight monsters or wildlife while defending your fortress etc. In the adventure mode you control a single character who can roam the huge randomly generated maps in different biomes, caves and caverns at will. The game world is 3D and viewed from a top down perspective. Graphics are nonexistent as the the game uses letters and symbols just like the old roguelike dungon crawling games. That can turn some people away from the game, which is a shame as it is one of the deepest and most complex games I've ever seen. The learning curve is VERY steep and the user interface is infernal but if you can get over all that the game has a lot to offer. Considering the fact that the latest version is only just 0.34.11, it seems promising for an unfinished game. Oh and it's free too. The development is financed by donations only.

    True, well the bit about most like, untill Starbound. Most people do not hate Minecraft here though. I never said it was a bad suggestion, just he probably has tried it or knows what it is. :)

    Of course I know about Starbound! That game won't be out until September or October I bet so I was looking for a finished game to play now.
    King Arthur's Gold is an awesome idea, but didn't look finished (still in alpha). I will probably download the free version today though because the video looked so cool.
    I'm stuck with MW3 if that isn't good though.

    In one of their posts it said what everyone was doing, and it said Tiy was coding something, I forget what it was though, but it shows he can code. If only I knew where it was...

    Like ReznorRage said, Junk Jack. It's not for PC though it is for iOS devices.

    There's no sandbox building element to that game, though.

    It still has the exploration and adventure aspects. Building is not the ONLY thing you do in Terraria. A game can have similarities to Terraria without having any building involved. When I think of Terraria, I think of exploring a harsh world and finding treasure, NOT building. When I look at Treasure Adventure Game, I think of the same thing. Therefore, I consider it a game that's 'like Terraria.' It doesn't have to be a direct clone.
