Making a Wish Come True in Terraria


Staff member

Greetings Terrarians!

As you all know, we cannot say enough about how much we appreciate the members of our community. In addition, we have always tried our best to be a charity-minded company. With that as background, we are beyond thrilled to share that we are partnering with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation to make a young Terrarian's wish come true!

Make-A-Wish® New Jersey contacted us a few months ago to share that they had a huge Terraria fan whose biggest wish we could help make a reality. Of course, we jumped at the chance to make this happen and we were quickly introduced to Frank. Frank is a 17-year-old teenager from Rockaway, New Jersey who is battling a critical illness. Frank declared to Make-A-Wish® New Jersey that his one true wish was to have his own Vanity Set in Terraria.

Since then, we have been working closely with Frank to bring this Vanity Set to life - from initial concepts to various iterations to adding flavor text and more, it has been a real honor and pleasure to work hand-in-hand with Frank to make his dream a reality. He is certainly a Terrarian, through and through!

With all that said, we are pleased to be able to reveal Frank's Vanity set, which will be coming everyone's way with the Terraria 1.4.5 update...

We also included a brand new shader, inspired by the "film noir" style of Frank's design. We haven't fully sorted out how this will be toggled just yet, but we will in time.

As always, there may be further tweaks and such to this set and the shader before it goes live in Terraria 1.4.5, but we didn't want to wait any longer to share it with all of you!


We also sent Frank a little Terraria swag...

Huge thanks go out to Frank, Make-A-Wish® New Jersey, the entire Terraria dev team, and our very own @Jaxrud🌳 who took on the monumental task of fulfilling this wish. We cannot wait to see Frank's reaction when he gets a chance to dive into Terraria with his very own Vanity Set later this year!




Make-A-Wish® New Jersey creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. In the fight against a critical illness, a wish serves as a catalyst for renewed strength and encouragement for every child and family on their journey. A wish helps kids look past their limitations, families overcome anxiety and entire communities experience joy. Most importantly, wishes can improve a child’s quality of life. We believe a single wish transforms lives.

With their national headquarters based in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish® is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, with 57 chapters serving children in every community in the United States and its territories, and nearly 40 international affiliates.

love the shader! I was thinking of being a film noir detective on my next playthrough and this is a great addition. I'd suggest making it somewhat like the Radio Thing from DST, maybe a box of cigarettes or a glass of scotch that can be equipped.

best of wishes to Frank! hope you enjoy your set when it comes out!

Which? There are cards with the Novel stuff... but not as a standalone? Board Game isn't included here.

these may not be cards, but I was just wondering what they were, or if they've been talked about before.

edit: wait i think the ones on the right are keychains, I'm still not sure what's on the left. maybe the same
