Here's all the latest and greatest 8BitMMO news:
The Player vs Player update lets you mark your town as a PvP Arena. Players will be able to respawn at spawn points you designate, allowing for fast paced combat.
Several modes can be set, including:
For more details on the PvP update, please see this blog post.
We are now running on a new server. The new machine is faster (3.4ghz quad core instead of 2.66 ghz quad core) and features better connectivity -- load times should be slightly faster, ping times slightly lower, and hopefully no more random connection outages.
For the new few days, everything in the plat shop is 50% off via Amazon and Google Wallet.
This one has been way overdue, but I've finally added status change notifications over player & npc heads. No more "you got 1 gold" messages filling up the chat window, as this will instead be shown with an icon over your head. HP damage is also shown in a red font.
Gold is now added directly to your player, instead of having to manually pick it up.
Also, Hipsters now give two gold instead of one.
Please note that as a result of the PvP update, I've updated the town of Root to have telepads directly to a couple PvP arenas:
Since it's so cold outside, why not a snow tile? Get it now from the Construction category!
The map was updated with the latest & greatest -- check it out here.
I made a special block for Halloween. The new block is a pumpkin block, which you can light for 10 minutes by pressing E while standing next to it. Includes realistic candle flicker animation!
Due to shoddy construction and toxic materials used, there is a slight chance something terrible might happen when you light it. But I am assured by the manufacturer that the majority of consumers do not perish in tragic pumpkin accidents.
Well, that's it for now. Even more exciting news to come soon. As always, please follow along, and click here to play the game!
