Created as a homage to the classic 8-Bit Role-Playing Games (RPGs) of the '80s and '90s, 8-Bit Adventures tells the story of an old game cartridge on the brink of destruction. Unplayed for years, it now sits lost and forgotten, covered in dust and slowly being reclaimed by the elements. Struggling against the inevitable, this cartridge sets in motion a plan - a plan, it hopes, that will subvert its fate and save the world within its circuits from total annihilation... Inside the game, three people - a warrior, a thief, and a mage - wake up to find that all the color has been drained from their world, petrifying all of the townspeople! To restore their home, they must collect the three colored Orbs by exploring dark dungeons and battling dangerous monsters. But this is only the beginning of their journey... "The last time I was blown away by the story in a game was when I played To the Moon. Then I got an email from Josh, of Critical Games..." - Amanda Fitch, Amaranth Games
Patch v1.01 for 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey has been released! Due to player feedback, it contains a re-balanced version of the first dungeon, reducing the difficulty and hopefully easing players into the world of 8-Bit Adventures more gently.

Thank you all for your interest in 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey, and your feedback. After hearing complaints from numerous players that the first dungeon in the game is too difficult (both from users here on Desura, and on other websites), I decided to re-balance that section of the game to reduce the difficulty and hopefully ease players into the game a bit more gently. That is not to say that the game is now easy, but players should have a much simpler time entering the world of 8-Bit Adventures than they previously did.
The changes are as follows:
- Re-balanced the first dungeon to reduce difficulty due to player feedback.
- Enemies in the first dungeon are now slower, have less defense and deal less damage.
- Escape chance is now 100% inside the first dungeon.
- EXP given by enemies in the first dungeon has been increased, reducing the length of time between level ups.
- One additional Potion has been added to the first dungeon, for the player to find and use.
I hope that this first patch improves the game experience for some users, and if anyone ever needs help or wants to ask a question, simply post your query here on Desura and I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
