The incredibly popular action adventure game, Terraria, has been released on almost every platform available since its launch in 2011. Google Stadia was going to be added to that list, but no thanks anymore to Google action (and subsequent inaction).
As IGN reports, Terraria is developed by Re-Logic, which was founded by Andrew Spinks . On January 27, Spinks tweeted that he had been suspended from YouTube and Gmail without explanation. Today, Spinks tweeted again, explaining how he has been locked out of his Google account for over three weeks; and by blocked he means everything: Google Play, Google Drive, YouTube and your Gmail account after 15 years of using it for email.

The obvious frustration Spinks feels has only gotten worse because Google doesn’t explain why it was blocked, and today that frustration turned to anger. In another tweet , Spinks announced that Terraria’s planned port to Google Stadia streaming service has been canceled, following with a tweet more that says:
«I will not be involved with a corporation that values its clients and partners so little. . Doing business with you is a responsibility. Spinks also suggests that Android support could end due to this action.
With Terraria now available on PC, Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the loss here seems greater for Google Stadia than for Re-Logic. Google needs popular games to help grow Stadia’s user base. However, it seems like you just missed a guaranteed hit due to lack of communication with the developer. Also, it may already be too late for Stadia to succeed after Google decided to halt internal development of exclusive games for its own platform. last week.
