It seems they ignore the fact that there are other processors than Intel/AMD (x86) processors in the world, to the degree that in their requirements they just ask for "an 1.6GHz processor".
That means they don't seem they have any idea/incentive to port it to any other CPU.

So the answer is NO!

They make it on ARM processors as well, otherwise all the tablet, phones and consoles would not be able to use it. Visit your local App/Online store to find out.

Only on Android, there is no working android for the RPI.

That wasn't the question though.
You can get Terraria via other methods other than Steam.


(I forgot, you can get it on POWER processors too (Consoles) and Android isn't the only ARM devices that have it for arm. Consoles too.)

And anyway Ducky has never replied back so who really cares ;-)

No it WON'T run on a PI, that is just wishful thinking, and ignoring all that was said in this thread.

As above.

It was a link to the question, getting it not on Steam.

There is no RaspberryPi targeted install.


Possibly very convoluted possibilities
Try Android on the Pi, sideload a terraria APK only it. It may well not work.

Try some x86 emulator and run it on there, it may well not work.

See if the Terraria Forums know of any methods.

Get a cheap PC above the minimum specs, buy a cheap Tablet, buy a console...
