The developers have finally issued an update on Terraria: Otherworld. Basically they felt the game needed a rework as it wasn't up to their standards, hence the delay. They can't give a current date for when the game will be finished as there is a lot of work to do still, the post very much sounds like they took a lot of it back to the drawing board.

Anyway here are some new screens, I think aesthetic wise it looks really good. I didn't realise they were putting tower defence stuff into the game though, not sure how I feel about that as I really dislike that gameplay mechanic.

I haven't seen one. No one has, but I believe it's a spin-off.

Sounds like we are going to have to wait a fair bit longer for Terraria: Otherworld. Re-Logic have dumped the studio that was working on the game and have said that significant parts of the game need reworking.

Full details here.

I wonder if they will consider Early Access as a route now that the game has had such a troubled development.

Otherworld has now been canned...

Re-Logic’s focus has and always will be on delivering complete and quality game experiences to our fanbase. Just to underscore it once more, this means that we will not compromise game quality for speed to market or for any other reasons within our control. Our team has a clear vision for this game – one that we shared with all of you with much shared excitement – and, in spite of all of our efforts, the current state of the game remains equal parts far from that vision and beyond behind schedule from our initial planning when we shared Otherworld with all of you three years ago. Progress has absolutely been made during that time – but unfortunately, a very thorough status review of the game versus its intended design showed both the Re-Logic and 505/Pipeworks teams that things were quite a bit further away from the finish line than we had imagined. Taking the massive amount of work that would be remaining to complete along with the extensive time it would take to get that done, and how that would greatly interfere with the pursuit of other projects on behalf of Re-Logic – it becomes clear that this leaves things in a very undesirable state.


As a result, we have made the decision to terminate development of Terraria: Otherworld.

In a way I'm glad; for one thing I really didn't like the artwork for Otherworld, but also it just didn't sound like a great concept following the sublime original. It sounds like it was getting a bit messy , development-wise too.

I do hope they're making a proper sequel.

That's a shame, I'm not as down on it as Raid, but I did wonder what was going on after so many delays and development issues.

I thought it was a bit of a shame. Looked alright to me albeit I only really had a passing interest.

Hopefully what ever they are working on now turns out to be a banger. :)

I'd completely forgotten about Otherworld it's been so long since we heard anything.

Looking at my Steam, I can't believe I racked up 115 hours on Terraria. I think I played through it from scratch again when that big update happened a few years back.
