2D Word-Of-Mouth Hit Terraria Sells 200K In Nine Days

May 25, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi




Re-Logic's exploration-based 2D online game Terraria passed its 200,000 sales milestone Tuesday, the company said.

The game, often described as a mixture of the exploration aspects of Nintendo's Metroid series and the craftability of Minecraft -- was released on May 16 for Windows platforms via Steam, and has become a word-of-mouth hit attracting a lot of attention in the consumer press.

"It's been such an exciting ride here," Re-Logic said in a statement to its fans. "You've all helped build a great, huge community here dating back well before pre-release.

"All of your suggestions have helped make Terraria the game it is today, and what a great game it is!"

Terraria is currently number two on Steam's list of top sellers, though it was in the number one slot for at least its first six days, the company said.
