I was just curious if anyone knew what language(s) was(were) used in the process of making the 2D platformer Terraria. Also what libraries where used to make the game engine? Just looking for some information on how to game was made.

It's C# and XNA 4.0, no other frameworks of any kind. No scripting. No data files. Everything is hardcoded into the EXE except for art and sound content.

It's even in the Terraria FAQ:

What programing language is Terraria created in?
C# in the XNA Game Studio.

If you get a program like ILSpy or .Net Reflector, you can actually decompile it and view the code. They didn't bother obfuscating it.. pretty ballsy.
