1BitMMO

Gaming technology is changing.  Every day, the quality bar for games changes and developers must meet the needs of their customers.

Consumers are demanding lower and lower fidelity graphics that requires short development time and attainable budgets.  Developers everywhere are bewildered by this unusually reasonable trend.

That's why we're excited to announce a new title capitalizing on this bold new direction.  Introducing... 1BitMMO!

You told us "8BitMMO has too many bits," or at least someone said that, possibly the smelly guy who throws muffins on 3rd avenue.  Anyway, we listened and now we have 87.5% less bits!

1BitMMO is a non-graphical M.U.D., essentially a multiplayer text adventure.  It cost an exhaustive development time of at least forty-five minutes, and is totally not just a stock mud downloaded from an FTP site because it also includes a snazzy 1BitMMO logo when you connect to it.

Said the lead developer, "We spent most of the development budget on a ham and cheese sandwich.  Our investors have confirmed this was a good decision as the sandwich also came with soup, and was only a few days old.  With our remaining $2.74, we hired a toddler to create the detailed artwork -- who later had to back out of the project due to artistic differences and a scheduling conflict with naptime."

1BitMMO launches today, April 1st, and is playable today only on the 8BitMMO website.  (Or you can play normal 8BitMMO by clicking here.)

  1. “Today only” :( noooo My Vamp is epic.

  2. Can’t you just keep it on as an optional thing? It’s far too epic to remove. Besides, you’re depriving us of a whole bit!
