8BitMMO is a retro-style 2D massively multiplayer game! It's a giant construction sandbox -- you can build a home or a castle in a persistent streaming world. Found and manage your own city. Fight evil LawyerCats and engage in Player vs Player battle.Features
100% Player Built World - The entire world is built by players. Build your own house, town, voxelart, or dungeon. The world is massive -- there's plenty of space to build in, and it streams in as you explore (no load screens).

Be the Mayor - Start your own town and invite your friends. You'll have an array of management tools for overseeing your town.

Interactive Development - The entire game only has one full-time developer, and development is still ongoing. You can submit and vote on ideas -- many of the top voted ideas have been implemented into the game. Free updates with new content and features are frequently released.

Anti-Griefing Systems - Several systems protect players from griefing.

Free To Play - No purchase necessary to have fun. Support the developer and buy a fancy hat... or don't. (Premium items give NO competitive advantage)

Customize your Character - Wear hats, clothing, accessories, change your skin color

Become a Zombie - Want to be a zombie? You can! But you'll need a steady supply of delicious brains from other players. Don't worry, after you eat their brain, they'll be zombies too!

Fight Nefarious Enemies - Congressional Lobbyist Slugs, LawyerCats, and Hipsters oh my.

MegaMap - The world is huge, so the MegaMap interface (based on Google Maps API) is a handy way to browse the world and share your creations with friends.

Music - Enjoy chiptune from legendary artists Danimal Cannon, Zef, PROTODOME, and Honin Myo Audio.Introducing the Steam Founder's PacksPlease consider supporting development by optionally purchasing a Steam Founder's Pack. You will receive a variety of benefits:

8BitMMO reviews and comments

Early Access Review A Little 8-bit style game between you can build and play Dungeons through is a fun Little game for in between. Building this is a bit complicated because you don't know where the Blocks are sitting. In addition, amn must buy each individual Block of Ingame currency even if they are not expensive.

Early Access Review EXTREM ABGESPECKTES SPIEL! The Characters and NPCs are very meagre, just because of the Implementation. There are still some changes to be made before this Game becomes what. I am a Fan of Retro Games myself ^^ but there is a lot missing from this Game that makes a Retro Game. I don't want to say that I can do better, but the Developers really need to get Steam in here! Conclusion: Very early Early which still needs to be plentiful unprogrammed Note: 4 + (Has Potential)

The Game makes you feel good! The Gameplay is similar to Minecraft's. You can build whatever you want from various Blocks. There are beautiful Items (but could also be more) to make your House or other Things more beautiful. In addition, there is the Possibility to farm in order to easily get money in this Way. I cannot confirm The often mentioned Pay-2-Win Principle. You get everything important-and if not, there are enough Players to swap premium items for Gold. There are also countless Game Relvies that bring Variety and new Fun and are sometimes really challenging and well done. I am really positive about the Game and can't comprehend the bad Reviews in any Way.

8BitMMO is a Free-to-Play sandbox MMORPG. Before the References to Trove are made now, 8BitMMO Is a 2D-8Bit game. Means what is advertised with Retro is quite ugly and simple in the Optics. But as with Women and Cars, Noble Optics mean little if the Fun is not right for it. Whether you have a lot of Fun at 8BitMMO is probably above all a Matter Of taste. The Game celebrates a certain Humor that takes place in numerous Allusions and Parodies to other Games and the real World. This can be funny, but also annoying. The Plus point Is certainly the constantly building and expanding Community at Play. But since the Graphics really do really put off massively at first, you really have to be ready to get into it. And on the partly somewhat cumbersome control And the "Level Construction," presumably due to the Engine. I honestly admit that the Game does not excite me, but I sympathize in principle with heart blood projects that involve their Community, so Thumbs up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7_dotQ27GE
