Terraria: Otherworld was intended to be a new spinoff game of the Terraria franchise. It was originally announced by Re-Logic and Engine Software. It was described as an open-world sandbox RPG/strategy game that would take a novel approach to the Terraria experience to explore "what might have been".

Set in an alternate dimension within the Terraria universe, Terraria: Otherworld places the player (and a "rag-tag band of survivors") in a struggle to restore a corrupted world.

In April of 2017, Re-Logic announced that development of the game would no longer continue with the help of Engine Software. Instead, Pipework Studios had taken over in place and Re-Logic announced that "we will be working with Pipeworks to examine the entire game, from top to bottom, to see how it fits with our high expectations and core vision for this project".[1]

In April of 2018, Re-Logic announced that development of the game has been terminated, stating "our team has a clear vision for this game - one that we shared with all of you with much shared excitement - and, in spite of all of our efforts, the current state of the game remains equal parts far from that vision and beyond behind schedule from our initial planning when we shared Otherworld with all of you three years ago".[2]

With the release of version for Terraria, the previously unreleased soundtrack for Terraria: Otherworld was implemented into the game as an alternate soundtrack accessible through the Party Girl.

Other images


  • From the "The Core" screenshot, it seems that hearts and stars on the HUD represent only 10 health and mana, respectively.
  • On May 11, 2020, in response to a Discord user asking him to finish development, Terraria creator Andrew Spinks stated, "100,000 signatures and $15 and I'll open source it."[3] A Change.org petition concerning the topic was made and the money was provided, and the petition received over 15,000 signatures in the first 2 days. However, on May 13, 2020, Andrew Spinks clarified, "If I release TOW source it's because I could get the legal details worked out. Not because of a petition."[4] The petition reached 100,000 signatures on January 17, 2022, however, Terraria: Otherworld remains unreleased, though it is said that Terraria 2 is in development, possibly being the alternative to this game.
