This week we will be getting a new version of Terraria on the PC that makes multi-player easier and adds much more content. This could well be the tipping point for the game’s battle against Minecraft.

If you’ve not come across Terraria it’s a 2D version of the popular block building game with a slightly older age rating (PEGI 12) and much more story.

In my family it’s eclipsed Minecraft as go-to game of choice. To find out why I’ve been recording my kids playing the game (without my usual parental intervention) to see what really goes on. The first of these videos is published below, the others will be added to the Terraria Let’s Play playlist.
