Is the game getting a local and/or online multiplayer? On the Kickstarter page, it was the 60k goal but it wasn't reached. Will it still be getting it in the future? If yes, which of the two or both? Thank you! Looking forward to this game~

The devs have made a good choice,They are holding off on multiplayer for a while. Rawbots broke itself by trying to go for multiplayer right outta alpha... Simulation based sandbox games are hard to make multiplayer because of all the math that needs to be done both client and server side.

In 2 to three years from now I think we will be ready to multiplayer. We'll have dozens of blocks for dozens of factions, a stable game that is able to handle large calcuations (won't lagg when there is a million parts) with a good user interface and a soild single player story mode/adventure/creative mode.

however, the sumo versus mode allows a kinda-sorta-somewhat multiplayer feature were you face your sums builds against other peoples sumo builds

It's not so much that we're holding off multiplayer - more that our current team size isn't really capable of adding that feature easily. We're all really excited to get multiplayer added to TerraTech and will be doing it as soon as we can do it properly - but it's a little hard to judge when that will be yet! :)
