… is out on steam.

2D Minecraft inspired metroidvania with RPG elements.

http://www.terraria.org/

About 20 lets play from the developers:

Advantages over Minecraft:
- development seems to be much faster (started in Jan 2011!)
- there seems to be more emphasis on character development and items
- its started as an action platformer rather than an open ended building game which is unsure how its going to end up

Played about 30 mins so far and its good fun already.

If you like dungeon exploration games like minecraft you will love it. Also there is quite a bit of character progression al la Zelda via items, crafting, health, building a house.

What an awesome little game. Dare I say even better then minecraft. Now, imagine the same type of side scrolling engine with a complete world(meaning cities and lore and quests…would be amazing.)
