Terraria crossing over into Edge of Space

An unthinking clod might crudely describe Edge of Space as "Terraria in space" but oh, that description is now quite literally true. Terraria dev Re-Logic and Edge of Space maker HandyMan Studios have announced a crossover that'll blast bits from the earthbound craft-o-explore 'em up into space, including a cyborg version of Terrarria's boss monster Skeletron.

An unthinking clod might crudely describe Edge of Space as "Terraria in space" but oh, that description is now quite literally true. Terraria dev Re-Logic and Edge of Space maker HandyMan Studios have announced a crossover that'll blast bits from the earthbound sandbox craft-o-explore 'em up into space, including a cyborg version of Terrarria's boss monster Skeletron.

The full extent of the crossover is under wraps for now, but it'll be playable at PAX this weekend so have a gander if you're going.

"I'm really digging the potential of Edge of Space," Terraria creator Andrew Spinks said in the announcement. "If you're a fan of my game, then there is a good chance you're really going to love the insane monsters, wild weapons, and flexible creation content of Edge of Space." Awww!

Edge of Space is still in the works for PC and Mac, but you can buy it now and start playing through Steam Early Access for $11.99.

      I'm sure it'll be interesting but i'd rather just wait for Starbound

        It'll probably be the better of the two anyway.

      Until right now, I thought Starbound *was* the sequel to Terraria.

        It sort of is. The original artist from Terraria left to make Starbound after the other founder, Andrew Spinks, announced that he wasn't going to move on from Terraria.

            AFAIK, terraria only had one programmer, Andrew Spinks, and he has nothing to do with Starbound

      Huh. I knew Starbound wasn't the sequel to Terreria, but I would have hoped this guy would have picked a different direction rather than compete directly with Starbound. I feel he's going to get trounced, since StarBound already has a better look and feel to this.

        like I would have loved to see a fantasy or sea based terraria.

        This is just announcing a crossover with bits and pieces of the two games being introduced to the other, so it's not exactly making space Terraria, but still is a pretty dick move.

          sorry, what's a dick move, exactly? making a video game that is similar to another video game?

            As far as I understand it, the programmer behind Terraria, Andrew Spinks, decided at the start of 2012 that he was done with Terraria and would be moving on. So Re-Logic pretty much dissolves and the other two co-creators move on. PR and production man Guerrette decides to Kickstart Clockwork Menagerie and the Terraria artist, Finn Brice, isn't done with the Terraria concept so decides to design Starbound with a new studio.

            Now more than a year later apparently Spinks isn't done with Terraria and decides to pimp a competitor to Starbound and introduce space elements into his own game.

              yup, sounds like he found a way to do away with his cocreators and gets to pocket all the money from the ports himself. kind of a dbag move, although the other two guys should have had a better contract written up.

          oh i didn't know there was a game called Edge of Space, I thought that's what the sequel to terraria was being called.. I misread that whole thing.
