The 8-Bit Adventure continues!
Enjoy an all-new RPG experience that mixes modern design with retro style, in this sequel to the fan-favourite 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey Remastered Edition!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you're all having a great end of 2023 so far.
I've just launched a brand new update for 8-Bit Adventures 2, and this is a fun one! Since our porting company partner Ratalaika Games is still working on the console versions, and the Free DLC is still in development, I wanted to do something special for everyone this Holiday Season.
So in addition to the usual bug fixes, and finally restoring the April Fools' Day boss (info on finding him is below), I've also added a new post-game side-quest. To access it, speak to the Traveller in the game's Dev Room, and choose to visit the Secret Map.
Yep, those Christmas presents can finally be opened! And they start you on a new quest to hunt down Glitched Monsters - all of which have unusual mechanics, and can take you by surprise if you're not prepared! Collect seven pieces of Glitchite, forge a very special new weapon, and tackle a more powerful version of the Experimental Titan with a special mechanic!
This idea was inspired by the Mushroom Heartless side-quest in the original Kingdom Hearts - albeit significantly streamlined and without the grind. I love the idea in JRPGs of having to hunt down monsters and make a powerful new piece of equipment. And this new weapon will have a specific use in the Free DLC in future as well!
Additionally, since some people found the original Titan too easy, I wanted to take the opportunity to make a harder variant. He's now faster, stronger, and has 1 MILLION HP 🤯 I know that sounds absolutely ridiculous for 8BA2, but the unique mechanic of this fight means it's not an insanely long battle - just one that requires a different focus and strategy (especially during the first phase of the battle). It's designed to be a little more overwhelming than I'd normally make a boss, but in the context of a post-game challenge, I hope it's fun (it's also totally fair to come back to it after the Free DLC is released and your party is stronger) 😅 Good luck to everyone in figuring out a winning strategy!
This new content is permanent (it's not time limited like the April Fools event), and should take around an hour to complete without a guide.
The full patch notes are below. Thank you SO much for all your support this year everyone! It's sincerely meant the world to me and our team. While 8-Bit Adventures 2 is only a small success so far, all of the reviews and kind words from players have made everything feel worthwhile. And if all goes well, this is just the start of our journey together!
But if you want to get me a present, then please consider leaving a review (if you haven't already). If we can get to 500 Reviews and an Overwhelmingly Positive rating, Steam will give the game more attention. We only need less than 1/8th of the total playerbase on Steam to leave a review to reach this milestone, so please consider it 😊
Have a wonderful end of 2023 everyone!
