Post news RSS 8-Bit Adventures 2 Twitter Showcase Round-Up #2 + Mini-Trailer!

For the past couple of months, I've been sharing info, screenshots, and music samples from 8-Bit Adventures 2 on social media. So I've gathered the second lot together for IndieDB!

Posted by on

Happy New Year everyone! It's 2023, and that means 8-Bit Adventures 2 is launching on PC (Steam & GOG) this month, January 31st! (The console versions are coming later this year)

If you want to support our work and help us have a successful launch, then please consider wishlisting 8-Bit Adventures 2 on Steam or GOG using the links below. It genuinely makes a massive difference.

But with that out of the way, I'm back again to share another round-up of info, screenshots, and music samples from 8-Bit Adventures 2 that I've been posting on social media (this time from November)!

First up is something brand new - the Panic in the Processor Trailer! It should look very familiar to anyone who's played the 8-Bit Adventures 2 demo.

The Processor is a realm of steam-powered industry - concealed for centuries, now under assault from the Glitch’s clockwork army.

Fight your way through the city, survive a deadly train ride, and reach the great Foundry to put an end to the siege!

I'll be sharing a new video showcasing 8-Bit Adventures 2 each week in January, so please keep your eyes on IndieDB, Steam, Discord, or social media!

But you can explore the Processor NOW by playing our Free Demo!


Niveus

Welcome to Niveus – a cozy hideaway in the harsh Frozen North, with indoor heating, sentient snowmen, & a Hot Chocolate item which grants the Regen status! Visiting Niveus is optional, but who could resist the chilly charms of this tundra town 😊

Charlie

Charlie’s a quick-witted, impulsive young man whose big mouth often gets the better of him. One of four orphans saved by the Thief, he grew up idolising her. Now Charlie lives in Pheopolis Castle, & he's spent the last two years training to be just like his hero!

Battle System

8-Bit Adventures 2's battles are inspired by Final Fantasy X’s combat system. This means every character takes turns individually & the order of turns is always visible onscreen. Seeing the turn order allows players to plan ahead & think strategically!

Like FFX, we also put a big focus on swapping party members in the midst of battle. More on that in a future post! 😎

Emma

Emma can seem timid, but she’s a skilled Martial Artist with immense inner strength. An accident claimed both her sight and the lives of her parents, but she was taken in and trained by her Grandpa. Now, Emma yearns to spread her wings & discover her purpose!Emma Full


Music Preview #3

This week's music sample is the 8-Bit Adventures 2 boss theme - No Escape! 🎵

This exciting track accompanies many of the 35+ challenging Bosses you'll battle in 8-Bit Adventures 2, and encourages you to give these fights everything you've got! ⚔️

The full 8-Bit Adventures 2 soundtrack features 78 songs, and it launches alongside the PC release on January 31st 2023!


Omega Burst

In 8-Bit Adventures 2, you can unleash a powerful Omega Burst attack when the gauge at the bottom of the screen fills up.

In our game there's one gauge for the whole party - so when it's full the player can strategically choose who they want to use it!

Robot

Built by the Computer, the Robot is equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry & tasked with hunting down any anomalies which threaten the safety of the world. A warm, stalwart companion with a logical exterior; he always says whatever’s on his mechanical mind!

FYI, the Robot, Warrior, Thief, and Mage are all characters named by the player in 8-Bit Adventures 2 😉

Robot's Parts System

The most unique character in 8-Bit Adventures 2 is the Robot. He doesn’t use an Attack command or Abilities menu.

Instead, he equips Parts – 3 in total - which determine the attacks he can use. And since Robot has no MP, they can be used infinitely! 🤖

The Factory

The Factory is a bizarre structure, hidden from the world and devoid of humanity 🏭

Run by upbeat robots, it is the seat of power for the mysterious Computer, and is highly coveted by the villainous Glitch. There’s nowhere else quite like it!

Personal Skills and Abilities

Everyone’s got a special skill & the same is true in 8-Bit Adventures 2!

Personal Abilities (like Speed Boost) are passive bonuses unique to each character, while Personal Skills (like Steal) are techniques that can be used in battle & have no MP cost!

Personal Abilities include always getting the first turn, perfect accuracy, & the chance of reflecting damage. While Personal Skills can be stealing items, regenerating MP, or breaking an enemy’s defences!
