Terraria Getting Retail Release
Terraria has been a successful experiment, selling over a million copies since its launch last year. That’s pretty good. So good, in fact, that its publisher, Merge Games, has announced that the $10 game will be getting a retail release on March 16. Really.
That seems… odd for a game so cheap. Obviously, a retail release means the price is going up; it’ll be £19.95 over there, and no price was given in USD. Expect, based on that UK price, it’ll be about $30 if it actually is released here.
This is really so weird. Terraria is probably worth the increased price, but it’s hard to imagine this actually being worthwhile for Merge in the age of digital downloads and PC gamers who would like to pay as little as possible for their games. Why buy Terraria at retail when you can get it for a third of the price online? Whatevs.
