Terraria: Otherworld

Terraria: Otherworld is the second part of the popular sandbox platform game, developed by Andrew Spinks and his independent studio Re-Logic. In the game, referred to as “two dimensional Minecraft”, we are given the ability to shape a randomly generated world without restrictions and to create a number of useful tools, utility objects and structures via its crafting system. Terraria 2 has a similar, old-school layout and similar mechanics as the original, but the game features also a huge number of changes and innovations that were not implemented by the author in the first installment of the series. First of all, players were given an infinite number of worlds at their disposal, each representing a different biome, e.g. woodland, arctic, desert, or lunar. Furthermore, character development system, object finding and creation, as well as the interface of the game, were modified. The game traditionally focuses on cooperation of many players, what allows them to collectively raise buildings or fight encountered monsters.

Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows is a spin-off to the 2011's highly-acclaimed 2D sandbox platform game. The title was developed by the independent studio Re-Logic, led by Andrew “Redigit” Spinks. One more company was involved in the game's development process - Engine Software, the company responsible for preparing a conversion of the original version of Terraria for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Story

Action of Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows takes place in an alternative dimension. The player is thrown into a world whose nature was corrupted by a destructive dark force. The hero undertakes the challenge of restoring the realm to its original, pristine condition.

Gameplay

The essence of the game remains unchanged. At our disposal we get a number of basic tools that allow us to reshape the world and help us during exploration. In the game we can dig in the ground in search for raw minerals, plant plants and set up plantations, build constructions, or craft tools, armors, and weapons. Building a safe house and making weapons is crucial, because at all times we are exposed to the attacks of deformed creatures populating this corrupted land. While exploring the game world we also encounter powerful bosses, whose elimination allows us to progress further. Because the environment is generated randomly, each game is unique. In addition, almost every element can be destroyed or modified, so the only limits to the game are the player's imagination, creativity, and motivation. Given this, the title is often called a two dimensional Minecraft.

Compared to the first installment, Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows introduces elements of plot and increases the emphasis on issues related to character development. However, following the story told in the game in only a pretext to provide us with unfettered fun as we transform the world, and it doesn't limits the openness of the product in any way. Item finding system was slightly modified, as well as the game interface, which is now more intuitive.

Technology

In terms of graphics, Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows presents a retro style characteristic of the series, inspired by the classic 2D platformers, although several cosmetic improvements have been made, when compared to the first installment. Color palette is maintained in darker tones, which better reflect the atmosphere of the world dominated by the malevolent force. According to the developers, Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows is what the original game could have been, if implemented with the ideas excluded due to lack of funds.

Game modes

Terraria: Otherworld for PC / Windows offers also a multiplayer mode, where, together with other players, we can play transforming and creating our own worlds.
