LINUX GAMING --
A few days ago Loki, the community manager for Re-Logic, the gaming studio behind the popular sandbox game Terraria, announced the release of Terraria 1.3.0.8, which both made the OS X and Linux versions of the game public, as well as ensuring compatibility between the OS X, Linux, and Windows clients.

Also included in the links are dedicated server builds for the respective platforms.

As usual, the only explicitly supported Linux distribution is Ubuntu, specifically 14.04. The recommended specs for the game are a dual core 3.0Ghz CPU, 4Gb of RAM, 200Mb of hard drive space, and a video card capable of supporting OpenGL 3.0 or higher.

There are a few known bugs in this release-- specifically a steam bug related to a “missing executable” error. This is a problem on Valve's end but Re-Logic does have a workaround described in the forum posts. Furthermore due to technical limitations the game does not support copy/cut/paste in either the OS X or Linux versions.

I'll be picking this game up for myself at some point in the near future and will likely give my thoughts on it then! Terraria is currently available on Steam for $9.99 USD, and on GOG for $9.99, though some forum posters are saying that for non-US currencies the GOG version is cheaper.

More details via the Terraria Forums.
