Terraria Unnoficially On Linux With MonoGame
Posted , 12 February 2013 at 6:13 pm UTC / 19774 views
Terraria a once widely popular 2D game can be played on Linux natively using a couple neat tricks, sad the developers don't do this for us themselves.

Thanks to a forum user called "jesyspa" and his friend they worked on a Mono version which can be found here, someone else now though has updated it here to use MonoGame 3 which apparently makes it work a lot better too!

This is all unofficial and you need the "content" folder from an official purchased install, shame the actual developers won't release a Linux version but the community can.

Couldn't get into Terraria myself, seems very much like Minecraft in 2D (from my very limited experience with it anyway).

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. A fan of anything techy, and not just Linux stuff.

Just curious, have you contact the Terraria developers to see about a possible port to Mono?
Not a full port, but it's better than no Linux support.

Unless official native port for Linux come I do not buy Terraria. But this is good new for those who already brought this game.
