      Departing from the Terraria 2D / sidescrolling, NMS is 1st-Person, 3D, beautifully-coloured, richly-populated, 60s-style SciFi in all its glory, in a game MAINLY about Exploration.. but with a Storyline to follow, the ability to engage in combat, and a crafting tree which also includes BASE BUILDING and VEHICULAR DRIVING. Significant Updates since its first announcement have made it GREAT again!

    4. I have said a few times that Epic Inventor was inspired by Terraria. There are obvious similarities you can see right away in the various screenshots I’ve posted. Certainly our desire to create a game was inspired by it as well. We love that game. We played it a lot.
