Terraria — AKA 2d Minecraft
For those of you who always wanted Minecraft’s gameplay without its glorious, cutting edge 3d graphics that weigh heavy on your poor processor, Terraria is the game for you.
In short, Terraria is Minecraft, but in the form of a 2d platformer. Terraria blends attributes from various genres like action, adventure, and RPG, and, of course, the ability to sculpt your world.
In development since January 2011, the game will feature multiplayer and PvP game modes.

Terraria will be released in “less than a few months,” which is more than a couple months, on PC for Windows. The possibility of an iOS and/or Xbox version exists. Read more at the game’s homepage.
