Terraria is a single or multi-player adventure game with the world at your fingertips, you can build, fight and do almost anything in this game. When you first start off you can customize your character, just the hair color, eye color, skin color, clothes color and outfit (you get more outfits in game). Then you build your world (I suggest large and easy if you are new) and then go about making your world!
You build your home the way you want it, simple or complex, and merchants move in to help you, you sometimes need to find these merchants but they usually come to you. Merchants are very helpful and some aren’t merchants some are healers, so be aware that you need these people. The bigger your house with more rooms (light, walls, chair, table) you have the more people that will move in.
Exploring is key. You need to explore to find loot, loot is key. You get weapons, seeds, potions, an endless number of items to help you through the game. Also, before you explore get gel and wood to make torches, just a friendly tip. Actually, just stockpile wood and re-plant trees for your house too.
Another important tool you find exploring is Heart Crystals to gain Health Points (HP) because you start out at 100 HP, which means you’re a meek-ling and a slime can kill you if you don’t have good weapons. Some other monsters are zombies, bugs of all sorts (bee’s worms, etc.), there are underworld demons, and then the random ones that appear in the “deadlands” that are hard to defeat when you’re a new player so you tend to avoid that area just like the underworld. So you are a small, small little person (food) in a big world.
Like I said before the world is at your fingertips, you can explore to the stars above (if you can find a way, in the beginning, good luck to you), or to the underworld (be careful when you’re new), and to the ocean, also, there are different biomes in your world. For instance, jungle, snow, desert, and wasteland to name a few. These biomes house different monsters and different types of loot, so exploring, again, is key. I am very cautious when exploring because I am afraid I’m going to die. Also, if you explore have a way to teleport back to home, or a grappling hook or rope or some way to get out of the hole you dug.
What can also help you is other players or trading items. When you are a new player you may get help from senior players, or you may not. If you are on Steam, subscribe to a Terraria group, read the forum, make friends! Friends can sometimes be life or death, no joke!
I think I have rambled enough! Terraria is amazing and addicting!! I’ve never played it on the PC, I’ve always played mobile but trust me it’s worth the money.
