8BitMMO is a 2D style retro MMORPG. Or more accurately, it is a sandbox MMO game. Although you do get to roleplay, there is a lot of freedom with what you can do. The game does not take itself too seriously, and the development of the game includes player input.
As an example of the irreverent theme in 8BitMMO, races include Humans, Potato, and Zombie. A player can become a Zombie by purchasing the option from the shop or be infected by another victim of the virus.
Players can travel the world by walking or through Teleportation. However, teleport pads have to be located and users will have no sense of direction. But teleportation is fast and can be quite useful with how large the overworld map in 8BitMMO is. Although the game is free to play, there are microtransactions for additional options.
Characters in 8BitMMO are fully customizable, including with hats, accessories, and other features. 8BitMMO states it is 100% built by players. You can build your own house, town, or dungeons. 8BitMMO encourages inviting friends to populate your structures and towns.
