Terraria seemed to come out of nowhere, at least for me personally. When the first trailer was released, some of us weren't even sure how to properly quantify the game. Enough people were curious to pay up that it became hugely successful, allowing the designers to expand the game further with new content.

That time is coming to an end, unfortunately. Terraria developer Redigit has posted a message to fans, saying that while there's still at least one more bug fix on the way, the team is preparing to move on.

"My wife and I are due to have another boy soon, and I want to spend some time getting to know him," he writes. "I also want to spend the time recharging and bettering myself as both a programmer and game designer. I have learned a lot from working on Terraria and plan on using what I've learned, building upon it, and moving forward with another, even better project."

Finn "Tiy" Brice has already joined up with Chucklefish to work on Starbound, which you're going to want to start following. Seriously, it sounds -- and looks! -- effing cool. Though all of this news might be sad initially, the free updates we got for Terraria and the promise of new games has me feeling great.

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
