Report article RSS Feed Introducing 8BitMMO, a game of combat & building

8BitMMO is a topdown 2D MMO, where you fight other players and NPCs, and use the resulting loot to build in the environment. This post will teach you how to play 8BitMMO.

8BitMMO is a MMO game that is still very early in development. Right now there's only one weapon (stab things with your sword!), one NPC (slay lawyercats!), and a couple basic tilesets (build a fort!). But there's enough content you can start to see what the game is like, and a number of us have already had fun playing. :)

How to get it: No download, it plays in your browser. Just launch 8bit.vg

Essential controls:

  • WASD - movement
  • Enter - to chat
  • I - Show inventory screen. Click an item in your inventory to make it your active item
  • Spacebar - use active item (click sword and use spacebar to stab things)

How to play:

  • Look around near the spawn point for CAT5 ports, which is where LawyerCats spawn. (This is a super-serious game. :P)
  • Slay LawyerCats and collect the loot
  • Once you have enough loot, press H to open the shop. Buy stuff to build with
  • To build, use inventory to select an item to place in world, then press R to drop item -- click where it goes
  • Advanced building tip: hold SHIFT to set Z height
  • Advanced building tip: use the Z Axis Lock in the bottom right as another way of setting Z height

That's pretty much it for this build... hope you enjoy!
