Re-Logic is an American independent game developer and publisher based in Indiana. It was founded by Andrew Spinks in 2011. The company is best known for developing and publishing Terraria, a 2D action-adventure sandbox video game. Re-Logic published Pixel Piracy and Pixel Privateers, both were developed by Quadro Delta.


Re-Logic was founded at the beginning of Terraria's development cycle, starting in January 2011, by Andrew Spinks.[1][2] The game was released for Microsoft Windows on 16 May 2011[3] and received multiple updates later on. In February 2012, Re-Logic's developers announced that Terraria would be receiving one final bug-fix patch,[4] but development resumed in 2013.[5] At E3 2019, Re-Logic announced the final update to the game. Update 1.4 Journey's End was released on 16 May 2020. Re-Logic stated that they wanted to work on other projects after this update.

Terraria has seen multiple console releases, which include the PlayStation 3 on 26 March 2013,[6] Xbox 360 on 27 March 2013,[6] the PlayStation Vita on 11 December 2013,[7] the PlayStation 4 on 11 November 2014,[8] the Xbox One on 14 November 2014,[9] the Nintendo 3DS on 10 December 2015,[10] and the Wii U in June 2016.[11] The game was also released for iOS on 29 August 2013,[12] for Android on 13 September 2013,[13] and for Windows Phone on 12 September 2014.[14]

The company published Pixel Piracy, a side-scrolling real-time strategy video game, for Windows, macOS, and Linux on 1 December 2013,[15] for the PlayStation 4 on 16 February 2016,[16] and for the Xbox One on 16 February 2016.[17] On 21 February 2017 Re-Logic published Pixel Privateers, a turn-based strategy video game for Windows.[18]

In February 2015, Re-Logic began development of Terraria: Otherworld, a game set in the same universe as Terraria. The game was announced in a teaser trailer on 16 February 2015,[19] however, on 13 April 2018, the game was cancelled due it being far behind schedule and far from the vision Re-Logic had for it.[20]

In 2019, in response to the increasing number of games becoming exclusive to the Epic Games Store, Re-Logic's vice president Whitney Spinks asserted that no Re-Logic titles would become Epic Games Store exclusives, adding that the company would never "sell [their] souls" for any amount of money.[21]
