It’s official, indie superstar Terraria is now available on macOS. The game was released by developer Re-Logic on July 23, 2015.
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:
We will be releasing Mac/Linux as open beta tomorrow. Will have more details on this in the morning.

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.

You can download the game from Steam.
