~ Bill Montagu on Terraria
When Andrew was at least a year old, the first incarnation of it was released for Commodore computers during the mid-80s. It was really popular, but it fell into obscurity afterwards. A port of this early version was considered for the Family Computer Disk System at the time, but those plans were ultimately scrapped until today- a time when several individuals have discovered the plans in its plan book and completed the port. In the meantime, Andrew had dreams regarding this project and to finish off what the others started. In order to do so, he engaged himself in the fine art of extreme programming in order to get it done. It did, and version 1.0 was open to massive praise. In fact, it was so well received that he, along with his companions, were known as the Masters (of Terraria).
Rare makes some pretty awesome licensed games. Don't you think? 
Here's a video which gives you an idea on the things you can do! After all, actions speak louder than words.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
What are the dark forces, and why are they infecting these worlds? It is highly suggested that they must be eradicated before fighting the Wall of Flesh.
Serving as an antipode to both Corruption and Crimson, The Hallow is far more pleasant and beautiful- containing loads of useful items which are in abundance. Unfortunately, you'll have to expect getting harassed by unicorns and pixies along the way. It's a must to have it spread following the defeat of the Wall. Prepare yourself.
~ WorldGen message about the Corruption
In our world, we see all manner of evil and nobody is doing something about it. It's up to you to stop your world (or not) from turning into a desolate land with purple trees, worms, and rocks. Sadly, it spreads faster as soon as the suggestions are followed. Only then if you fight the and win, it will be put in its place.
~ WorldGen message regarding the Crimson
Your world may have a slight chance of being infected by the Red Menace, but don't worry. It's slightly easier to go through. Let's not mention that weapons from the Crimson are slightly stronger than their corrupted counterparts. There has been some speculation as to the Crimson representing communism due to how it spreads across a world until it is all red and desolate, and you (the democratic player) have to purify it. If you think about it, this theory makes a lot of sense! After all, Terraria is all about freedom of expression with limited restrictions and your epic struggle to preserve it.
The Collector's Edition
What makes it work?
The universe is operated by various fundamental forces which allow it to flourish. It is up to the players to maintain the balance or risk the fall of a universe. Luckily, one player and his friends fight to have it thrive so you don't have to and you probably wouldn't care anyway.
Imagination is one of the most important fundamental forces that exist within it. Without it, we wouldn't have all the great projects that we've seen for the last 3 years.
Respect for a fellow player is also important, for the power of friendship can be able to get the most impossible of tasks done. Niceness must be established outside of it, for they are different people.
The Masters have dedicated a good 3 years and counting to improve upon the universe. When some believe in them as deities, they work their best when they are working on a new update. It's not mandatory, but it's good to keep in touch with them.
Following the release, many generalizations have been made throughout the course of 24-minute days besides the fact that the speculation of the spread of Crimson and Purity can be symbolic of the ideogical conflicts in the Cold War. Some may say that this is complete and utter bullshit, but I kid you not, there is some "spiritual" significance in Terraria. Where younger players stand, the rebellious spirit amongst them (which has seen a comeback since the baby boom) rises with the scenery imposing a state of tranquility and a desire for creation. Sometimes, people just don't care anymore and go utterly crazy with their creations looking very incomprehensible- evoking a sense of existentialism once prevalent in the 1920's and the dada art that followed. Once again, Andrew and company live somewhere in Indiana- taking assets from other proctors and refurbishing them the good old American way (see next section). This could also serve as the reason as to why it's obscure. Then again, it is what you make of it and that depends on the individual.
For instance, the author of this article made those connections with his fiery, yet ardent passion for the subject matter. Then again, it's a bit true if you think about it.

They stand for the ideals of the lovely game and its obscurity. After all, when was the last time you had a conversation with somebody about the Ice Climbers? There are some guidelines that must be considered in order for one to be a representative, which leaves us to this:
- Is this character from an obscure title (once popular, forgotten today)? If not, is he/she an unknown figure in a more popular work?
- Does the character, in some strange way, have something to do with the lovely game?
- Can they be consistent? Can they fit with the other characters present?
If the criteria is satisfied, then we have a new representative! Speaking of which...
The original representatives, before Alex went bat fuck insane:
The others hail from other realms, for they too are relatively obscure and they look to this game as salvation. Every day, there rests hundreds and hundreds of canidates.
Who knows what the next representative will be?
To most players, May 16 is a very important occasion where regards are held to the Masters and a time to PARTY HARD!!!!!!! We at Uncyclopedia suggest doing the latter for those who don't play the game. In other news, Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16 as well. Who knew?
It's going to be the next big thing regarding the lovely game.

Today, the Masters decided to help their dedicated fans with a new proposition: Portals to the worlds that you and your friends have made- meaning that you get to see them in 3D! Before we can get excited, it's good to know about the things to expect in the universe and our world in order to prevent a massive amount of lives lost in the midst of the hype- only on Uncyclopedia! They're settling the kinks to have television be broadcasted in there for events such as Extreme Jenga matches. Praise them!

- According to some people, reasons as to this port not being released was due to a variety of factors: appropriate release date, overshadowing by other popular titles at the time, personal matters, or .
- , Reference to the game "Digger T. Rock", an old NES Rareware game that is similar to Terraria.
- Defeat of the Accursed One slows the spread of the Corruption/Crimson and possibly the Hallow by 33%. Pretty neat, eh?
- Then again, we enjoy products from other countries (especially Japan).
- Toon Link's background, allusions to his past, and the satisfaction of the other requirements allowed him to be placed alongside the likes of the Player and the Guide. Considering the controversy that arose from the release of The Wind Waker and other circumstances, his placement makes perfect sense.
- "The Bunny can be seen on many of Terraria's logos, being one of the most common icon characters of the game."
