After explaining how Terraria is NOT like Minecraft to my nephew - I started explaining everything that was in Terraria to which he answered "like Minecraft." Okay, so it's like Minecraft. Still a great game.

I'm really glad Terraria got such big success on release.

The reason I enjoy their success, is that they are threatening Minecraft developer 'Notch'.

If you think about it. This game has huge bosses, big levels, different biomes, shops, merchants that stick around after completing something. This game has so many more items than Minecraft has, and the game was made in a few months by two guys sitting at their moms basement.

Notch has his own studio, over 16 people working for him, he has a lot of money and resources, he spent years working on Minecraft - YET, it still takes MONTHS to get updates on Minecraft.

"Oh gawd, Notch added Hatchets on the next update, it only took him 31 days".

Notch is a turtle compared to these guys.

And why is that? Because they instead of all working on mine seems like that only one guy and notch are still "working" on the game between the parties, playing civ5,vacations,etc and the rest on diferent projects

Don't understand why people feel the need to slag off minecraft (and I guess this game over at the minecraft forums). Both great games. Just shut up and dig.

They are actually two different games, but its understandable why people put them in the same category. Minecraft is more of a sandbox/build game. Whereas Terraria is more of a sandbox/adventure. IMO at least.

not to mention that minecraft is 3D + notch is using ♥♥♥♥ty restrictive java, what actually sucks hard.

Notch himself said in an interview that he has never once finished one of his projects.
