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.

Now with Achievements! Also: Mac & Linux builds.

May 30th, 2014



I am excited to announce that you can now unlock achievements while you play the game. Check out the full list of achievements here.

ALL achievements can be earned by all players, although some can be a bit tricky ;)

Lots of new Household Goods items


I've just added a bunch of new household goods! Check them out in-game.
Also, I changed the way items are placed -- most items smaller than a half block will now attempt to horizontally & vertically center themselves within the tile. Also, when placing signs, they no longer snap away from you when you place them.

Mac & Linux Steam Builds
Steam users can now play the game on Mac & Linux!

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”
9.5/10 – Gaming Capacity

About the 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.

Great game, countinously spam spacebar with fantastic animations. Gives only slight amounts of Cancer. Storyline is tear jerking, heart pounding dramtic. To be honest Cried through my whole 5 min experience

Everyone who plays this has to be a shaolin monk to have the patience with the horribly confusing pseudo-3D concept which makes building AND doing quests ridiculously more difficult than it should be. I do like the general idea, but the execution doesn't appeal to me much.

God, How would I put this? "ROBLOX SUX!!!1111" "Meh, (I refuse to say the name of this game, but I have to) 8BitMMO was worse".
How do I put this?
Community: ROBLOX-esque. Though as said below, People got banned for just saying that "This game is boring". I mean, You could kicked for just referencing ponies in Minecraft. Or how about the time you got kicked for trading a 'duped' item when it's really a killstreak in a crowded TF2 server full of squeakers? OR HOW ABOUT THE TIME YOU GOT KICKED FOR NO REASON AT ALL? yeah. forget that, the 8BitMMO fanbase is too connected.
Game: It looks generic, somehow attractive, but it's enitrely player-created. Nobody's gonna think it's good or anything. I mean, the LawyerCats just looks like a prototype cat enemy from BattleBlock Theatre. Speaking fo lawyers, I'mgonna phone mine up now.


Altogether,I can't say anything else. This is just bad. -69/10
