What is Terraria?

Terraria is an action-adventure/RPG indie game released by independent game studio Re-Logic available via the Steam Store. The game features exploration, crafting, construction, and combat with a variety of creatures in a randomly generated 2-D world. Basic gameplay features day and night cycles, nocturnal and subterranean attackers, world-building elements, and character advancement. The game has a tile-based graphical style reminiscent of the 16-bit sprites found on the SNES. At character creation, each player has a copper axe, a copper pickaxe, and a copper shortsword. They start out with 100 health. When the character first spawns in a new world, an NPC, the Guide, appears nearby to explain the basics of gameplay. There are three character difficulties: Softcore, Mediumcore, and Hardcore. They vary only in death penalties. In Softcore, characters drop half their coins. In Mediumcore, characters drop all their items including coins and ammo. In Hardcore, characters die permanently, dropping all their items and becoming ghosts, unable to alter the world. When a player on hardcore difficulty dies, their character is deleted.
