Terraria Passed 20 Million Copies Sold

Back in 2011 a small indie game would hit the scene and become a gaming sensation. Terraria, developed by Re-Logic, was this game. For those of you who don’t know Terraria, the game is a 2d sandbox/fighting/building/crafting game which is stuffed full of content. As Terraria holds a soft spot in my heart, I was excited to hear Re-Logic announce that Terraria passed 20 million copies sold. Some interesting points from the announcement below:

Launch: May 2011

  • PC Only
  • ~250 Items
  • 6 NPCs (7 if you count the Old Man)
  • 20 Enemies
  • 3 Bosses
  • 10 Biomes
  • Game “ended” with the Dungeon, explorable upon defeating the final boss of the game at the time, Skeletron

Terraria is a phenomenal game which should be on any gamers bucket list. What is also exciting is that Re-Logic has announced a sequel to Terraria called Terraria Otherworld. While no word has come on when to expect Terraria Otherworld check back to Hold to Reset as we learn more.
