Terraria Crosses 1.3 Million Mobile Downloads


The iOS version of 2D sandbox adventure game Terraria is going strong and has now surpassed 1 million paid downloads. Combined with the Android version, Terraria mobile now has more than 1.3 million downloads, publisher 505 Games announced today. Those numbers are terrific considering that the title hit iOS in August 2013 and then in September on Android.

505 Games also announced that Terraria has crossed 1 million downloads in total across the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Vita. Both the console versions were released earlier last year, with the Vita version being made available in December.

Terraria is an indie title developed by Re-Logic that features exploration, crafting, construction, and combat with a variety of creatures in a randomly generated 2D world. The game was originally released for PC back in 2011 and so far it’s estimated to have sold about 50,000 copies during the first day of release, with over 17,000 players online at the same time during the first day’s peak.

The mobile port features redesigned touchscreen controls, Facebook integration, leaderboards and fully optimized visuals.

A sequel was hinted in October by Terraria’s creator Andrew Spinks. He said that the game is not in development yet but when it happens he would like to code it in a more portable language. Thus making it easier to bring it across multiple platforms.
