The first one’s not even on PSVita yet and we’re getting news of a sequel.
Andrew “Redigit” Spinks is the creator of Terraria, and he spoke today with RockPaperShotgun (a video game news site) about how Terraria 2 is going to be much bigger.
“I’m super excited about starting Terraria 2,” he said, voice suddenly ringing with a pointed intensity. “It’s a ways out, but it’s gonna have a lot in common with the original. It’s gonna be quite different as well. I really want to expand on the whole Terraria universe.”
“There’s a lot of stuff I’m locked into with Terraria. The way loot works, the way character progression works. In Terraria 2, I really want to have infinite worlds so you’re not just stuck to one world. You can travel anywhere. I want more biome diversity in that, too. There’s a lot of stuff [I want to add and change].”
“Everyone on my team is really enjoying working on Terraria 1. But I have looked into maybe hiring another small team to continue updates while I move onto Terraria 2. So that’s also an option.”
“When I made Terraria, I did it in four months, and I think I only paid, like, not very much – and that was just for the sound,” he admitted. “So I’d like to be able to do something similar with Terraria 2. My personal preference is that I never be in a position where I need to get money to fund my projects.”
Sounds like we’re in for quite the game when he gets around to finishing Terraria 2 up – now if they’d only announce a date for the first one on PSVita.
