I’ve only really dabbled in Terraria before having only just made it down to Hell before checking out other things which is a shame as looking back now I really think I would enjoy exploring and understanding the mechanics and world of Terraria more now, well with the ‘Journey’s End’ update now out bringing the development of the game to a close now would be the best time to jump back in I suppose.
The patch notes are massive and the amount of love and care that has gone into this final patch is nothing short of breathtaking. This however doesn’t mean that the story of Terraria is truly over as the developers have implemented a system which will ensure the game will last for many years into the future, steam-integrated mod support.
tModLoader is the external program used by many to add mods into the game as the way Terraria is designed means that integrated mod support is just not possible but this is the closest thing to an official endorsement by the developers. So much so that they have now added the program to Steam and they have plans to directly implement Steam Workshop support soon too which is a huge boost to the ease of access of modding to many players and, as they put it themselves, they are essentially “handing the keys” over to the modding community of the game and letting them keep the spark of creativity and fun alive. I wish all developers chose to do this as it really helps keep a game’s community alive and well for many years after official support has ended and shows you truly did love your time working on that title. The developers have stated that they will now go on to work on new projects and I wish them all the best of luck for them in the future.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
