A Linux Port Of Terraria Will Soon Be Looked At, Hooray
Terraria a very popular 2D sandbox game is alive once again thanks to a renewed push from developers, and in a recent update they noted Linux will be looking into after Mac (and Mac looks close). The game itself is something that helped make sandbox games as popular as they are today.
Originally development was meant to end in 2012, but in 2013 it gained a big "1.2" patch with more content, and it looks like development is still going on even now for new boss monsters and a Mac port.
Luckily I carried on reading on their forum and found this:

Fantastic news, as I'm sure there are a lot of Terraria fans lurking on Linux that would love to be able to play it natively.
Dig, fight, explore, build! Nothing is impossible in this action-packed adventure game. The world is your canvas and the ground itself is your paint.
Grab your tools and go! Make weapons to fight off a variety of enemies in numerous biomes. Dig deep underground to find accessories, money, and other useful things. Gather resources to create everything you need to make the world your own. Build a house, a fort, or even a castle. People will move in to live there and perhaps even sell you different wares to assist you on your journey.
But beware, there are even more challenges awaiting you... Are you up to the task?
