8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey Remastered Edition is a retro-styled JRPG with polish and personality, that focuses less on references (although there are plenty!) and more on telling a story...

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

A Warrior, a Thief, and a Mage go on a journey

to save the world by collecting three elemental treasures.

What’s that? You’ve heard it all before?

Tell me then…what happens next?

Join 3 unlikely heroes on a quest to save their world from a threat unlike any other!


  • Classic Story with a Unique Twist!
  • Vibrant, 8-Bit Inspired Graphics.
  • Genuine NES-like Music with Retro Charm.
  • Explore a vast world, packed with monsters, treasure, and more!
  • Fly an Airship, Pilot a Snowcraft, or Travel by Whirlwind!
  • Colour-based Element System adds an extra layer of Strategy to Battles.
  • Discover Engaging Characters, and People with Personality.
  • Enjoy an old school adventure!

Calling all players! The 2023 Steam Awards have begun, and it would mean the *world* to myself and our whole team if you would nominate 8-Bit Adventures 2 for the Outstanding Story-Rich Game award by clicking the link below 😊

Nominate 8-Bit Adventures 2 for a Steam Award!

And if you've never played 8-Bit Adventures 2 before, now's a great time to jump in! As part of the Steam Autumn Sale, the game is 30% Off - our BIGGEST discount ever! πŸ₯³ 8-Bit Adventures 1 is also 60% Off as usual too!

Buy 8-Bit Adventures 2 on Steam!

Buy 8-Bit Adventures 1 on Steam!

The Steam Awards began in 2016, one year after 8-Bit Adventures 1 came out. And then 8-Bit Adventures 2 was in development for 7 years. So this year marks the first time that a big game I've developed has ever been eligible to participate in the Awards! And we only get one chance (because 2023 is our year of release).

As many of you know, it's been incredibly difficult to draw attention to 8-Bit Adventures 2. I've tried everything I can think of, but one of the most common comments I receive from new players is still "Why haven't I heard of this game before?"

The Steam Awards are, quite genuinely, a life-changing opportunity for us to bring 8-Bit Adventures 2 to a mainstream audience. If you've enjoyed the game and want to support our future endeavors, I would be *immensely* grateful for your support in nominating 8-Bit Adventures 2 for the Outstanding Story-Rich Game award.

Steam Awards 2023

Sebastian, Jerram, Sufyan, and I poured everything we had into making this game, so seeing players enjoy it and connect with the story has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. I'm immensely proud of our Very Positive rating on Steam - which is entirely thanks to players like you.

If you're wondering why we're targeting the Outstanding Story-Rich Game category, Steam only allows us to select one award to be nominated for. While several other options were considered, 8-Bit Adventures 2 is - ultimately - a story-focused game, in a story-focused genre. And based on comments from players, it's a story that's really connected with people - which I couldn't be happier about.

But don't take my word for it. I want to share some public-facing quotes from players about why our game is Story-Rich - and why 8-Bit Adventures 2 is worthy of your nomination 😊
