Fans of Minecraft quickly found a love for Terraria and I wonder what they will think when cybernetically-enhanced laser space sharks show up in their beloved world of Terraria. For me, I personally think it will make it even more fawesome. Handyman Studios and ReLogic announced their partnership that will bring content from wildly popular game Terraria to the sandbox survival adventure Edge of Space.
“I’m really digging the potential of Edge of Space,” said Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, the creator of Terraria. “If you’re a fan of my game, then there is a good chance you’re really going to love the insane monsters, wild weapons, and flexible creation content of Edge of Space.They are a great group of passionate developers and I am glad to get to know them, and it could turn out to be one of the best sci-fi games in the genre.”
Fans will be able to see first glimpse of the never-before-seen content at the indie developer crossover event at PAX Prime 2013. And I hear that the content includes a battle with Omegatron, the sci-fi enhanced version of Terraria’s Skeletron boss.
“We are really excited to have this crossover content and we have some cool stuff planned,” said Jake Crane, lead designer and founder of HandyMan Studios. “Terraria has been a great inspiration for those developers creating massive, open worlds that put players in control of their destiny.”
You hyped yet?! No? Well, this news comes paired with the launch of the “200% More Science!!!” patch for Edge of Space fans currently playing the game in Steam Early Access. Available at an on-sale Steam Early Access price of $11.99 before its launch price of $14.99, players who heed the call to ArkCo command early will receive “First Responder Armor” that grants bonuses to assist in those first waking moments after leaving the crashed space pod.
Edge of Space, including this new Terraria content, will be playable all weekend at the Reverb Publishing PAX Prime booth #3436. For new Edge of Space feature announcements visit the game’s official Website and follow the development team at Twitter and “Like” Edge of Space on Facebook.
