Reviews

“The most randomly awesome game I've played in a while”
MMORPG.com

“... generation upon generation of user-made structures dot the landscape, and oversized shapes and enigmatic letters mystify like Nazca lines. It feels free, like playing with Legos as kid. You have agency. There are all sorts of weird ways to play. You can transform into a zombie if you want, try and spread a plague, mix things up. Oh, and beware of LawyerCats. They’re out for blood.”
Indie Statik

“... this is a must play”

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.

I put quite a few hours into this game, as well as bought the founder's pack to help support the dev. The game has a small amount of people that play, and it really feels like my own world rather than an MMO. The world is also very littered with the blocks from people who played the game for maybe thirty minutes, and never came back. I will probably check in every now and then. If your computer is a potato, download 8bitMMO, if not, download Trove instead.

To start this game was developed by one person. Anyone who has ever coded anything will notice that the developer has most likely thrown his entire life and soul into this (which he has). This game has come so far, and has so much more potential. The community is friendly, and very helpful. Mods are on nearly 24/7, you can message the developer directly on IRC for quick replies. If you want an RPG then don't go here. This is a social, sandbox game. Everything you can do you can do without buying anything with real money. The MOST you have to do in the form of extra payment is buy premium items from other players with gold. Every single thing in this game is player built, and most of them are absolutely amazing. This game deserves so much more attention then it has right now.
