What the developers have to say:

“There's plenty of fun to be had right now in the game, but it's not done yet. I am releasing the game onto Early Access because many players are already enjoying the existing content, but we're still developing and improving it with your feedback and ideas.

Things you can do right now:

* The building systems are fully playable, and in fact, many players have used them to create sprawling mega-cities, huge statues, and awesome pixel art.
* Solve (or create!) simple player quests.
* Build collaboratively with friends by joining a player city (or become the mayor of your own town).
* Build privately in your own pocket universe.
* Build your own dungeon or player-vs-player arena.
* Three races to choose from so far: Human, Zombie, or Potato. Become a zombie and nom on others to infect them with zombieism.
* Fight nefarious LawyerCats, deadly Hipsters, and a couple other baddies.
* Level up and unlock new items to build with.
* Once you are Level 4, explore the dangerous and untamed =67 map -- it's filled with islands and oceans and hard mobs.

Things on the roadmap for the future (game updates happen frequently)

* More monsters to fight.
* More weapons.
* More character levels.
* More buildable items.
* Your suggestions and ideas! The community is a huge part of development, and many top suggestions have already made it into the game.

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”

About This Game

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. Work in Progress! :)

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 / WIP Updates - 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.

Early Access Review
Hmm...
The concept is good, but there are some things I don't like. First and foremost, there are way too many microtransactions (AKA in-app purchases). To build something, you need to buy every single block with coins. To gather enough of them, you have two options; either keep playing and get them (which takes forever) or buy them with real money. So, by that aspect, you may feel kinda scammed, like I did.

Regarding the gameplay, it is really difficult to build. You'll have a hard time trying to place a block over another. Try it for your own, you'll see. Sometimes, the block hiding system doesn't work, thus making it impossible to play inside a room.

But wait, there are positives; as I mentioned beforehand, I liked the concept, even though it's not new. There is also a fully functional anti-grief system, which I admire, as there is no such thing in Minecraft or Terraria (yet).

Early Access Review
Its a Nice concept its got Nice music but with mostly all Free to Play games there are Microtransactions and this just ruined the game for me, you need plat to become a Zombie, you need plat to buy cool stuff not everyone is going to buy that and the Leveling up takes so long there are no Aussie servers it takes so long to earn Gold.
With all these Microtransactions it feels like a Pay to Play game
1/10

For no cost it is a fine game indeed and you can build anything you want and glorify it with enough time spent. However the enemies do tend to get a bit repetitive but still challenging in a way, I enjoy it very much but its really up to you about how you feel about it when it comes to what your looking for in gameplay. If you want a casual building game with some fighting but not quite minecraft than this may be for you! If your looking for a action packed battle game with flaming demonic wolves than i suggest you keep searching. This may be a short review but it is what i think of the game.

No. Just. No. This game may only be in beta, but it's so bad I almost cried at how bad it is. The mechanics are bad, the tutorials take forever, the quests drag on, and have no point, and they have player-made quests meant only so you'll see their crappy towns and buy a spot in it. It's nothing but a poor way for the devs to make a quick buck, while ♥♥♥♥ting all over the players. Not only is all of the above true, but you won't find anyone on here that's friendly, helpful, or interesting. Everyone just argues about stupid crap, and tries to get you to buy ♥♥♥♥ from them. It tries so hard to be funny, and their attempts are definately in vain. They make jokes that stopped being funny about five years ago. They basically downplay RPG's of all sorts with the guide's personality being so poor, and this also proves to be a poor strategy, as the game is an RPG. -30/5

Early Access Review
This game is fun. The 100% player built world is no lie. Most of the achivements are hilarious. This is the one game i have in my steam library with over 13 hours. The only problem i have is the microtransactions. Plat swamps the shop. But at least you can turn into a potato. Most of the building blocks don't cost much, and getting money is easy. You can create enemy spawners and get money from that, along with other things.The trading option is great, along with creating towns with townstones.The 8-bit style is well made. The chosen music for the game fits with the style perfectly. The griefing control in the game is well-made, so people aren't running around taking blocks from your build randomly. I recommend this game greatly. Your'e welcome.
