Terraria is an action-adventure sandbox indie video game, developed by game studio Re-Logic. The game features exploration, crafting, construction, and combat with a variety of creatures in a randomly generated 2D world.
The gameplay is revolved around exploration, building, and action. The game has a 2D sprite tile-based graphical style reminiscent of the 16-bit sprites found on the SNES.
The game starts in a procedurally generated world and the player is given three basic tools: a pickaxe for mining, a short sword for combat, and an axe for woodcutting. Many resources, notably ores, can be found while mining or exploring underground caves. Some resources and most items may only be found in certain areas of the map, stored in common and rare chests, or only dropped by certain enemies. Players use resources to craft new items and equipment at an appropriate crafting station for that recipe. For example, torches can be crafted at a crafting bench or ingots smelted from ore at a furnace. Many advanced items in Terraria require several crafting operations, where the product of one recipe will be used as the ingredient for another.
Some players of the game created Escher inspired constructions, which are represented below.
