I'm thrilled to announce that 8-Bit Adventures 2 was selected as one of the indie games to be exhibited at Tokyo Game Show 2020! Operating as a digital event, TGS will run for the rest of the week - from the 23rd to the 27th of September (Japan Standard Time) - and there'll be a ton of great games on show, everything from indie to AAA!

It's a genuine honour to be selected for TGS, a game show that - especially as a fan of JRPGs - I've excitedly followed every year since the early 2000s. Its always been one of the most storied events in the industry, so I hope you'll check it out!

You can learn more about TGS 2020 here: Tgs.nikkeibp.co.jp

Or check out the 8-Bit Adventures 2 Exhibitor Page: Tgs-online.eventos.tokyo

And don't forget - anyone can play the 8-Bit Adventures 2 Demo, available on Steam right now!

Soundtrack Samples

I'd also like to give a quick plug to the 8-Bit Adventures 2 SoundCloud page! So many people loved the music in the recent 8-Bit Adventures 2 trailer and wanted more. Well, we have 20 music samples for your listening pleasure already on our SoundCloud, so please feel free to check them out: Soundcloud.com


The soundtrack is composed by the wonderful Sebastian Cruz (also known as Carfonu). He composed the music for the first 8-Bit Adventures as well, but he's absolutely outdone himself this time - creating a phenomenal 78 song soundtrack. If you like 8-bit or RPG music, you won't want to miss it!

Finally, if you’d like to support 8-Bit Adventures 2, please consider adding the game to your Steam wishlist – it might seem small, but it genuinely makes a big impact on Steam’s algorithms and will help us gain more visibility as we approach release!

Thank you all very much for your support (especially after the Gamescom trailer launch - that's been amazing!) and I hope you all enjoy TGS 2020! I'm excited to see what the week brings =D

I'll do my best; thanks so much for taking the time to write - I sincerely appreciate it. Maybe I'll see you around the Steam community when the game comes out! =D

For being an 8-bit game the artwork is beautiful and detailed. Which is surprising considering it is 8-bit. I can see a lot of work put into this game and it looks well thought out. Also looking at the reviews of your other games show positive story build up. The trailer looks good. I am looking forward to this game!

Thank you very much - I'm so glad to hear you like the look of the game! Depending on how you approach it, an 8-bit aesthetic can be quite versatile (the NES colour palette is actually really vibrant), and our artist has done his best to create something special. I genuinely respect that you went out and researched my past works! I've tried very hard to go above and beyond what I've done before, and that very much includes the story and characters, so I'm hoping everyone will really enjoy it =)

Anyway, I sincerely appreciate the kind words and can't wait for you to play 8-Bit Adventures 2! Thanks again Thread =D

The game looks pretty good, but I can't think of a shittier name for an 8-bit game. Might as well be called "Look at our graphics -- isn't that retro?!"

I dunno, there are some obscure NES games with pretty awful titles XD My intention with the title was less about the graphics and more focused on the "Adventures". Specifically, I wanted to convey the sense of an adventure made with a classic approach ("just like you remember it, but with fresh ideas!"), and I felt that some RPG-esque name like "Last Reverie" would be immediately dismissed as parody.

Truthfully, it wasn't my best idea (I was pretty new to game development when I came up with that name back in 2012), but after the first game had a moderate level of success, I was kind've stuck with it =P With that said, I have warmed up to it now, and fans just use the abbreviation of '8-Bit 2', so that's worked. Regardless, thanks for the kind words!
