Earlier today, I thought: “Man, Terraria sure is a great game. I should make a clone.”
Then later today, I thought: “Wait, somebody probably already did that.”
And, lo! An open source Terraria clone: Terrarium!
But man, I have to install so many dependencies. This kind of thing is a drag. I just want to try it out.
Fortunately, the instructions were pretty good.
Following the instructions in BUILDING.md, first I installed MinGW and Allegro.
