Andrew "Redigit" Spinks is an avid gamer who has always aspired to create his own game, and eventually his own game studio. To that end, he began by teaching himself how to code. First with Visual Basic, and then onto the much more powerful C#. He decided it was time to have a crack at making the game of his dreams, which is Terraria.
Soon the crew expanded beyond just Spinks himself, recruiting Finn "Tiy" Brice, Whitney "Cenx" Baird into the development of Terraria and eventually many more.
