Spring 2016 Development Status Update

Today’s v1.72.3 release tackles some long-standing bugs that I’ve been meaning to fix for awhile now, including that annoying issue with non-functioning battle hotkeys on private servers. Though my development efforts will remain focused on Key of the Exiles content, I’ll try to make a point of pushing out small updates more frequently as I make minor fixes/improvements that benefit the existing game...

About This Game

"With a ton of content and a charming 8-bit world, you just can't go wrong" - The Escapist
"NEStalgia is exactly what you'd expect if the original Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior games were shared worlds. Fantastic." - 1UP


NEStalgia is an original multiplayer RPG inspired by the glory days of traditional console RPGs. Essentially "Dragon Warrior 3 meets World of Warcraft", NEStalgia is an amalgam of the best generations of RPG gaming.

Players wage classic turn based battles in multiplayer parties while enjoying modern trappings such as a full-featured quest system. Those who prefer to go solo can recruit almost any monster in the game to fight alongside them as they explore every nook and cranny of NEStalgia's expansive 8-bit world.


NEStalgia can be played locally in single player mode or in small private games with friends. Where the game really shines, however, is on larger dedicated servers with 50+ online players. On dedicated servers you can test your might in NEStalgia's balanced and competitive PvP battles, or get 8-bit rich by selling rare loot on the player auction house. If you're looking to make new friends to adventure with then you can always join or create a custom guild. In order to tackle NEStalgia's difficult end-game content you're going to need every bit of help that you can get.


NEStalgia is constantly evolving and expanding, ensuring that players will constantly have new updates to look forward to. Purchasing NEStalgia guarantees full access to all future updates and content expansions at no additional charge.

It may look old and easy, but you'd assume incorrectly. You'll spend a really long time getting to the end, but that's just with one character!

This has become my favorite game to play. It's like the developer read my mind and created a game just for me. The community is very small but quite social and helpful. The game is grindy but so was Dragon Warrior 1 and I played that for days on end as a kid. If you played old school NES/SNES RPGs and are looking for a modern MMO take on classic gaming, this is the game for you.
