See that screenshot? You’re seeing it right, candy-cane houses, hostile snowmen, mobster snowmen, snowmen with ice picks, santa gear, and snow. Also, weather. This teaser screenshot was posted on the Terraria forum as a sneak of what is coming in patch 1.1.1 coming out near Christmas.
You can see clearly that one of the snowmen is armed with a tommygun, there’s a pun or reference here involving mobsters and snowmen but it’s right on the tip of my tongue and it wont come off. Calvin and Hobbes is popping to mind but I don’t recall guns being shown very often. Or was it Gex? God it’s driving me crazy!
