Survival sims Don’t Starve and Terraria have at all times had spooky themes. I imply, one of many playable characters within the former is a younger woman who can summon the ghost of her twin sister. Now the 2 video games are doing a crossover for Halloween. To this point, it seems to be to be within the type of a monster from every indie sport making a go to to the opposite standard indie.
The Terraria crew introduced the crossover on Twitter by sharing a clip of Don’t Starve’s Wilson encountering the Eye of Cthulhu, a boss from Terraria. Wilson seems to be correctly haunted by the emergence. Klei Leisure, the studio behind Don’t Starve, responded in variety with a clip of the fearsome Deerclops making its pixelated debut.
It is going to be fascinating to see how these enemies are literally integrated into gameplay, or whether or not they’re simply enjoyable little Easter eggs. Every of those are fairly iconic monsters — ones which have grow to be symbolic of early challenges that gamers will face in these robust survival sims.
Eye of Cthulhu is Terraria’s first boss, and a real take a look at of participant mettle. And any Don’t Starve participant is aware of simply how irritating it may be to come across the Deerclops — it exhibits up in winter, and it will probably destroy massive elements of a participant’s painstakingly designed encampment in only a few stomps.
This crossover is one in every of a number of enjoyable, current bulletins from Terraria developer Re-Logic. It comes on the heels of a Re-Logic developer posting to the sport’s Steam web page to notice that Terraria is presently being optimized for the Steam deck, as reported by Destructoid.
