    TERRARIA FOR MAC
    Yes, I know its already being considered, but it would be a HUGE help for many people. I know macs are not for gaming, and I am not a fanboy, but i dont really have much options here and many computer games now a days such as portal, minecraft, half life, etc are all available on mac, so why not terraria? Please terraria makers-consider doing this soon! (And also: lets not have a pc vs mac war in the replies please...>_<)

    It's not being considered.
    It's not even going to be officially released for mac. It uses Microsoft's XNA Framework to run, which only works on a Windows or an Xbox 360.
    There might be a 3rd party program that lets you run it on a mac... or you could just use Boot Camp.

    from the Terraria FAQs on the website...
    "On what platform(s) will Terraria be available?

    Terraria is being developed primarily for Windows, but we may bring it to iOS and/or Xbox platforms in the future."

    So yes, they are considering it.
