Terraria Comes to Edge of Space in Crossover Event

EXCLUSIVE TERRARIA CONTENT COMING TO EDGE OF SPACE
PAX Prime Attendees to Take on Terraria’s Skeletron for the First Time in EoS

Twain Harte, CA – August 29, 2013 – HandyMan Studios and Re-Logic announced today a partnership that will see content from the wildly popular Terraria coming to the sandbox survival adventure Edge of Space in an indie developer crossover event. PAX Prime attendees can get hands-on time with this never-before-seen content that includes a battle with Omegatron, the sci-fi cybernetically enhanced version of Terraria’s Skeletron boss. Edge of Space, including this new Terraria content, will be playable all weekend at the Reverb Publishing PAX Prime booth #3436. This news comes paired with the launch of the “200% More Science!!!” patch for Edge of Space fans currently playing the game in Steam Early Access.




“I’m really digging the potential of Edge of Space,” said Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, the creator of Terraria. “If you’re a fan of my game, then there is a good chance you’re really going to love the insane monsters, wild weapons, and flexible creation content of Edge of SpaceThey are a great group of passionate developers and I am glad to get to know them, and it could turn out to be one of the best sci-fi games in the genre.”

“We are really excited to have this crossover content and we have some cool stuff planned," said Jake Crane, lead designer and founder of HandyMan Studios. “Terraria has been a great inspiration for those developers creating massive, open worlds that put players in control of their destiny.”

Available at an on-sale Steam Early Access price of $11.99 before its launch price of $14.99, players who heed the call to ArkCo command early will receive “First Responder Armor” that grants bonuses to assist in those first waking moments after leaving the crashed space pod. 

Set in deep space, Edge of Space is an open-world, dynamically-generated sandbox survival-adventure game. Start with only a laser pick and the gear from the crashed pod, then immediately start collecting, as every piece of ore mined is valuable. Fight against an array of creative horrors including cybernetically-enhanced laser space sharks or vicious genetically-evolved polar bears -- and those are not even the strangest monstrosities to encounter! At the absolute edge of space gamers must adapt or die - good luck ArkCo Operative!
