Terraria is now Available on Mac

by | Jul 22, 2015 | Adventure

Indie superstar, Terraria, continues to make noise and capture the attention of thousands of gamers.

Available on macOS since July 23, 2015, the game continues to receive significant updates. For that reason, it remains a fan-favorite and one of the best adventure games for Mac.

The developer also warned us that both Mac and Linux versions would be initially available in beta form and most likely with a few lingering bugs. Beta or not, it’s great to see Terraria for Mac finally arrive. This game has been on my radar for a long time and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

It’s still unclear how the beta will work, but the developer promises more information tomorrow:

About Terraria

Terraria is an open-ended sandbox game that revolves around exploration, building, and fighting. You will have to dig, build and fight your way to bosses, caves and mysteries. The game uses a graphical style reminiscent of the 16-bit era and feels like Minecraft in 2D.

Both versions are part of version 1.3, which is a huge update that includes graphical changes (with re-imagined sprites and backgrounds), new features and new content.

For more information about Terraria 1.3, you can check the official change log or simply watch the official trailer below:

You can download the game from Steam.

And by the way, Terraria is also available on mobile devices. If you’re looking for a great game to play on the go, Terraria is also considered one of the best offline games for Android.

    This is cool. I’d given up on this where it was taking forever. I already own it on Steam from ages ago so that’s cool. Free Mac game! (well, sort of)

    Oh man.. I loaded the beta last night – hosted a game (my two oldest kids adore this game…) and my daughter connected to me on her 2013 MBA, me on my MBP, and my son on his Asus computer. The host computer failed so many times doing menial nonsense that I had to set up the host computer on my old WIndows 7 box in the basement that runs XBMC so we could all play. Hosting on OSX is still working out some bugs (I sent at least two dozen logs and screens to the devs over steam-chat from mine and my daughter’s trials…) but the game runs amazing when it does kick in on a stable host.

    Now I just need to know what the hell to do.

      Hey buddy, I mean to ask, now that the game is out of beta, have you tried to play it again? Is it still so buggy?

      • Chris Tallant

        It’s better, but still not perfect. The host/client fix is better, but you can still crash a server if both parties do specific things (it changes by patch, oddly,) such as attack the first boss with a party member AFK for more than 3 minutes… so it’s still coming together, just… slower than expected.

        I can say that I do prefer Terraria more than Minecraft, but given that I’ve never spent more than 30 minutes at a time trying to do anything in Minecraft, Terraria (forgive me, I have no clue how the proper spelling is supposed to be,) benefits multiplayer and group play more efficiently than Minecraft.
