    Really happy to see regular updates flowing again for Terraria, it’s been a blast to hop back into after being away for so long. Had a look at other games to fill the void between updates, and I’ve been playing a ton of playasteria.com. It’s a good old platformer with 2D Sandbox Terraria twist thrown in.
