You know, I didn’t think Terrorarium was going to suck me in as fast as it did. I was never a real fan of Pikmin. But ya got me! With your adorable little moogu and your hobbling gardener granny, ya got me.
Terrorarium is a puzzle game at heart, where you have to figure out a way through what they affectionately dubbed “murder gardens.” You play as The Gardener, a little old granny character who controls different types of “moogu.” The moogu follow you around and can be used in different ways to help you get through obstacles. There are quite a few levels to play through and they can get quite tricky, so you may find time just zooming by if you get reeled in.
In Maker Mode, you can try your hand at creating your own murder garden. Make it as easy or punishingly frustrating as you like and then release it into the world to make other players either cry or go “wtf?” Personally, this mode isn’t my cup of tea but I imagine it’s a lot of fun for people who like things like Mario Maker.
As I mentioned above, different moogu have different abilities. They do things like set stuff on fire, block objects, or weigh them down. The moogu follow granny around all the time unless she tells them to sleep, which can get really annoying in some situations. They also breed when anything dead is around… which is kinda weird but okay. And that brings me to my favorite quote from the stream…
Sometimes you gotta kill a few to breed a bunch!Divine to Jax
This game gets tricky and it definitely makes you think. I like that it has the maker mode so you can exercise some creativity. Playing through the puzzles is what I really enjoyed and keep going back to.
