We can't quite believe it but it's just over a year since we revealed TerraTech to the public for the first time at Rezzed 2014, and nearly a year since we released our very first IndieDB demo. It's been an amazing ride since then and we're celebrating this milestone by dropping the price so that even more of you can get in on the action now.
From 6pm BST on Friday 3rd April, the Standard Edition of the game will cost $19.99/£14.99/E19.99 and the Deluxe Edition will be $28.99/£20.99/E28.99. You'll now be able to upgrade from the Standard Edition for $9.99/£6.99/E9.99.
But we haven’t forgotten our most passionate and loyal explorers who’ve been with us since the start so we're also releasing the Year One Payload pack which will be available for FREE to everyone who's bought the game before the end of March 2015.
Included in that will be a free extra copy of the game that you can gift to a friend. Multiplayer is on its way soon so pick your off-word pal carefully!
Once you’ve downloaded the pack, you’ll be able to access a pile of awesome hats to top off your favourite techs! If you've got the latest build of the game then you've probably spotted the new Payload Terminal block (more info here if you've not come across it yet: Terratechgame.com). By using this new in-game shop you can pick your favourite hat and add it to your vehicle.
So what glorious headgear will you choose? You can see the line-up above and if you're a Year One Payload pack holder you can pick any of them. As it's Easter, we also had to throw in some bunny ears too, which will be accessible to all players, and not just those with the Year One pack.
Lots of you who've been with us since the start have been getting stuck into the forums and giving us invaluable feedback on the game as we've gone along so we want to reward you there too – if you registered for the forum before the end of March you'll also get a brand new and exclusive forum banner so you can show off your 'I was there at the beginning' creds to everyone else.
A massive thank you to EVERYONE who's supported, pledged, bought, played, shared, watched, built, explored, flown, mined and crafted their way through the last year and helped us get the game to where it is now.
This is just the beginning, and with your help we can keep growing and improving the game in future. We're looking forward to hearing more of your ideas and putting in all the cool features we know you want to see, including the much-anticipated multiplayer, so watch this space!
