A video game development project named "8BitMMO" was publicly announced today. 8BitMMO is a free browser game where up to 250 concurrently connected players can shape the world block by block. The game's engine allows for a wide variety of player made buildings. Players can build solo, or group up and create their own towns with friends for cooperative building projects. In either case, a grief protection system protects the player's creations from unwanted interference. The game is humorous in tone, with amusing quests and unusual enemies . There is also basic Player vs Player and Player vs Environment combat.

The project was first started in 2001, but underwent multiple total-rewrites and art style changes. While the game is still currently in ongoing development, it is fully playable on the project's website. As the project is Java based, it can be easily run on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Future updates to the game are planned to introduce more features and content.

I'm not saying it looks like minecraft, however I am saing that it is a cross between The Realm of The Mad God and minecraft/terraria/Ace of Spades/Brickforce/Roblox. Great game this is all of those combined and i liked them all. :)

The game is quite sloppy, could be less text/more user friendly. The game could get a better help system. When i entered this game i didn't understand anything, after some time looking around and finding some stuff, i understood it but still it's a quite boring game. It just doesn't have the feel init.
From 1 to 10 i would give this game a 6.5.

The game still has a impresive style for a browser game, even though the browser game genre expends and upgrades in many ways. This is a great new style for the browser game genre ^^

Kind of weird for someone named "The Hatchetman" to not have melee...but it will have multiple "bolt-ons."
