Terraria is a game that is an action-adventure sandbox box. While many have compared it to 2-D Minecraft, the game has a surprising amount of depth and also a lot of other features that make it stand out. Terraria for Google Stadia was in development but it seems that due to the creator of the game having some strong beef with Google, has prompted them to cancel the port.
Terraria for Google Stadia Canceled Until Further Notice
Andrew Spinks, the creator of Terraria, has gone on a series of tweets as he is understandably frustrated over being unable to access his Google account for the past few weeks.
Considering the immense importance of a Google account and all the services tied to it, Andrews frustration is well-placed.
Andrew describes his ordeal with Google on Twitter and in protest over his treatment with trying to get his account back, expressed his discontent against the search and tech giant by canceling the port of Terraria for Google Stadia only a few hours ago.
Terraria is among the few games on the internet that is literally on almost every imaginable platform under the sun. Its available to play on the PS3, Xbox 360, PSVita, Wii-U, Nintendo 3DS, Windows Phone, PS4, Xbox One, Mac, PC, Linux, Android, and iOS.
While the game is also available on Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, GeForce Now, Google Stadia could have used a game like Terraria to add to their limited library. Considering how recently the game also closed their first-party development studio to make games for their own service.
While the writing on the will is pretty obvious for Google Stadia and the service is already bound for joining the ranks of KilledbyGoogle, this could be the first shot fired by developers in protest against the service.
Cloud gaming is still a relative new and niche product/service. With Amazon also set to join the fray with their in-testing service called Luna, will Google Stadia be able to stand against competing services? Let’s wait and see if the developer has a change of heart, but it doesn’t seem that the bridge is going to be mended together so easily.
