It’s funny how time flies. It’s been a few years since I even thought about 8bitMMO, Archive Entertainment’s indie title. I remember Brim giving the game an A-Bomb on a Free to Play Cast years ago as he wasn’t a fan of the nostalgic graphics nor the game’s entirely player built world.
Little did I know that the title was actually 14 years in the making! It all started when solo indie developer Robby Zinchak began working in his spare time on a sandbox game where all players could help build the world together.
Fast forward to today and 8bitMMO has officially made it to a version 1.0 launch. The latest updates also include the new “Transponders” mode. This competitive PvE/PvP mode allows players to build a base and then summon a raid consisting of monsters and other players. Enemies spawn in increasingly difficult waves, and the winning side is awarded gold for their victory.
