I like how this game has a focus on exploration, so yeah I would buy it when it's out.

By the way: Notch (Creator of Minecraft) supports this game, so it can't be a ripoff. Can it?

I think it's more than different enough to not be a rip off of Minecraft.

Now Fortresscraft, that's a rip off.

On Terraria races: I'm not sure what I'd expect, but it's not likely to have much effect gameplay-wise. I'd personally prefer something like customizable skins that you can upload to a site, and make universal across all installs (including XBox, when they release it there). Strangely enough, Terraria being 2D makes for more customization in character sprites than you can get in Minecraft with retexturing.

Sakamoto demands an explanation for this shit.

Then again We don't call MineCraft a ripoff of Infiniminer do We?

Except that Infiniminer is not nearly as well known...

It's apparently going to only cost ten bucks, too.

Day one purchase? Day one purchase.

Do we even know what the system requirements are going to be, and yes I want it.

I really can't imagine they'd be too high, considering it's a 2D game.

I'd say if you can run any games that have been out in the last five or six years, you should be good to go. Just an estimate, so take of that what you will.

@delta: It's settled, then. I'm snatching this up immediately.

I did some research and found out that Redigit is also the author of Super Mario Bros. X, one of the best (if not the best) Mario fangames. [Apparently it got recently C&Ded by Nintendo, but nothing sure on the matter.] So the guy knows how to make good platform engines and editors.

I was just wondering, I pretty sure that I can run it without major issues.

Good thing summer just hit, and my classes don't start for a week. Plus I get paid today so I'll have no money hangups. I'll be sure to look out for any community servers you guys may come up with.

Taking a break from FE1, for the FE8 draft instead
