Kinda, although with less of an emphasis on building and more on exploration.

The exploration and building is more shallow.

The combat and loot progression is deeper.

it's more of a "metroid roguelike" than anything else, but with mandatory permadeath exchanged for a very lengthy playtime for a single world

No, especially not after the most recent update.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

Then you simply haven't been following Minecraft. Both games have been adding a lot to their creation aspects, and Minecraft has simply maintained its lead.

On the other hand, I suppose that Terraria has beaten Minecraft at exploration...but it's been better than Minecraft with that since beta, really. Exploration and combat are Terraria's main draws, construction is Minecraft's.

75% off on steam, that would be a must buy. It is a great sandbox game.
