It feels amazing to compare just how far the game has come. I remember when I started playing Terraria from 1.1.2, and thought it was an amazing game even then. To see the Developers give so much love to the game, and wanting to improve a game that has lasted me over 1,000 hours even more, shows to me how much the Developers love this game as we do.
Regardless of the content that's added, just seeing what's changed in Terraria and how it's evolved has been very thrilling to watch for these past 5 years.
I know this number doesn't seem big: 0.27%
That is, out of context.
20 Million Terraria copies sold = 0.27% of the Earth's entire Population (Assuming the world population is ~7.4 Billion). That's quite the achievement!
Congratulations to 20 Million! Let's keep climbing, shall we?
It's been fantastic to see this game grow from its debut (I picked up my copy a week or two after release); To another 20 million!
Terraria is the game that made me into the person I am today, without Terraria, my life would have been very miserable, thank you to the Team and everyone that has made this game possible and making me happy and all the people that support the game 333
I am glad to have found this game, as it has easily become my favorite indie game of all time, having logged over 2500 hours since I started playing 1.1! Although I don't keep active very consistently, and am a bit of an awkward penguin for my part, I still check back regularly just to see what people are posting, and look for any news regarding game updates. I especially love looking at the Creation Compendium every month and checking out cool designs from the community. I am glad to see that this game has come so far, even just since the days of 1.1, and especially comparing it to 1.0 by looking at the trailers! Terraria will always hold a special place in my heart, and I look very much to the future of this franchise!
So thank you, to all Re-Logic staff and forum team, for making this game and this community as awesome as it has been! Let's keep the future bright!
I have well over 4300 hours in Terraria. This is by far my longest played game so far, here's to another 4000+! I love everything about this game, the franchise, the community, the game-play, and more! I've bought multiple copies of the game, and plan on buying even more (ToW on day one)! Everyone at Re-Logic, Engine Software, and 505 Games who have worked on Terraria in recent memory, THANK YOU for an incredible experience. I've played this game for over 4 years now, and we've never had DLC, over ANY platform. Absolutely incredible, considering the countless hours we have all spent playing this amazing game, and will continue to spend on future entries in the franchise! Best 10$ ever. PERIOD. I cannot thank all you guys enough!
Oh man, now I'm thinking about the old days of 1.1 when hardmode was more of a late game thing than a midgame thing, there were only 2 types of wings, the mech bosses were some of the hardest bosses ever, and the Megashark was the absolute best weapon that was perfect for all situations and all bosses and you can't tell me otherwise.
I think back then we were celebrating 1 million sales and 1.2 had just been announced. To think we're here all these years later celebrating 20 million, and not only is the main game still being updated, but there's also a spinoff title on the horizon.
All this from a game that was 'finished' at 1.1.2 in early 2012. They've really pushed that little game engine to do everything it can and a lot of things it probably shouldn't. I blame Y0raizor for that last part.
