Archive Entertainment, an indie development studio, has announced that it is working on a new sandbox game called 8bitMMO. The title, according to devs, allows players to build the world brick by brick with up to 250 concurrently connected to the game.
The game's engine allows for a wide variety of player made buildings. Players can build solo, or group up and create their own towns with friends for cooperative building projects. In either case, a grief protection system protects the player's creations from unwanted interference. The game is humorous in tone, with amusing quests and unusual enemies. There is also basic Player vs Player and Player vs Environment combat.
Even though the game is in ongoing development, players can experience 8bitMMO via the website on its Java platform.
