terraria.jpg Everyone's favorite side-scrolling multiplayer sandbox game might not be perfect but it's certainly impressive and something many that have come to love. Since release, the developers of Terraria have demonstrated an incredible amount of support for their game. Unfortunately, that might soon come to an end.

Andrew "Redigit" Spinks recently spoke up on Terraria's forums about taking a bow and will be stepping back from development for a while. The reason behind it? The desire to be closer to his family. (Say d'aww, folks!)

"After a lot of internal debate, we have decided that it is time to move on. My wife and I are due to have another boy soon, and I want to spend some time getting to know him. I also want to spend the time recharging and bettering myself as both a programmer and game designer. I have learned a lot from working on Terraria and plan on using what I've learned, building upon it, and moving forward with another, even better project."

Will this spell the end of support for Terraria? Maybe. However, there may be hope. Gaslamp Games made their interest in taking over support for Terraria last night on Twitter. While negotiations may currently be taking place, it's still too early to place bets on either outcomes. We'll let you know if we hear of anything more.
