    This sort of thing would be a huge investment and take a lot of time, I hope you realise what you are asking for and what the developer (if you actually find anyone on here) will likely want out of the deal.

    Lets say this takes 3 months to develop properly. Also you need graphics and music/licenses.
    2 months for proper developer is around $7K (thats very cheap and you will be lucky to get anyone with knowledge for that price, but lets say you can get that). This will include 2 months development and small debugging and testing (unless you are OK with multiplayer that is easy to cheat). Graphics - you would pay for a job - probably $1-2K for semi-good designer. $2-3K for someone with name. Then sounds and music - add another $1K for music (licenses etc.) and if you are lucky you can get sfx for free or pay someone to make them for $1-2K.

    This is really cheap, there is no shortcuts for this pricing. The main thing that is expensive is multiplayer.

    Terraria looks like a simple goofy game because of it's 8bit graphical style, but there's lots of coding involved in the game. Think about all the creatures, all the materials, all the environment behaviours. It all needs to be designed, coded, and balanced. For a single dev, creating a game like that would take at least a year (assuming full time work), and I might be falling short on this estimate.
    Now, 1 year of a full time developer salary is going to set you back anywhere between $40k and $100k, depending on the level of seniority, and this doesn't cover graphics, sound, music, and many other things you will need.
    So maybe you don't really want terraria and need something a lot simpler, if so, your description is extremely misleading and lacking detail.
    Just out of curiosity, what do you need it for? Are you trying to make it into a business or do you already have something going on and need minigames to increase customer engagement?

    You need a designer, developer, beta test team..
    Lets make this simple, you need more than 20-30 people who will work full time on the game if you want it in less than 5-6 months.
