Blocks, Rocking: Neverdaunt:8Bit Beta

By Kieron Gillen on October 8th, 2009 at 3:15 pm.

We’ve been meaning to post about this since we received a terribly excitable e-mail from a chap called Ryx. I’ve only gone as far as watching the videos, but was enchanted. Jim had a crack, but hasn’t actually found time to post about it. We can’t keep this loveliness to ourselves any longer. It’s called Neverdaunt:8bit and it’s a sort of construction-MMO that’s currently in Beta. Basically, it appears to be an Indie Second Life for people who prefer 8-bit aesthetics and actual games over submissive gorean foxgirls. That is, better. Video follows…

I also like the fact the team behind it call themselves Robot<3Kitty. Bless.

    I can confirm that this is crazy clever. Also: laggy.

  2. WiPa says:

    I’ve played this before, and had a chat with the developer.
    It’s an intuitive game, but it needs alot of polish.

    It is laggy currently due to the fact that the developer is hosting it on his DSL line.
    He’s currently looking for another place to host.

    It looks interesting. And cute as a button to boot.

    …are buttons actually cute?

  4. Theoban says:

    It looks nice, and the art style is great.

    But…no foxgirls? I’m out.

    Ooh shiny!
    Like the music in the trailer. Also reminds me of Minecraft.

    2009, the year of charming, independent, retro, construction MMOs?

    Had the building exploded in a physics-ey way when the bomb went off i would’ve had to change my pants.

  8. Anarki says:

    what is it with all these construction MMOs? I want to destroy things, not create!

  9. Harmen says:

    Ah, plain old untextured polygons. Still the best :)

  10. dtgreen says:

    Bless, hosting on his DSL! This looks interesting…

  11. Tei says:

    Awesome. Also, theres LEGO MMO somewhere on the horizont. It will be a RPG version of LEGO Star Wars or more like this thing with more polish? Lets wait and see :-)

  12. Asskicker says:

    Looks like some sort LEGO MMO, heard of an LEGO MMO coming too!
    Awesome timez :)

  13. manintheshack says:

    Very rarely, but they’re certainly bright.

    Is this what would happen if you channeled Love through an Amiga?

      You just made me giggle until I nearly peed myself a little :P

  15. theleif says:

    Oh, this gave me an idea. Imagine a Mario World-type of mmo, where you build up you own level and run around other levels, created by other players to get upgrades for your level. And so on. Could be sweet.

  16. Jon says:

    That company name sounded familiar to me. I was wondering what it was for ages, before I realised. Robot finds kitten.

  17. LionsPhil says:

    Way to go, robot! An art game that’s actually amusing to play, no less.

    (Kieron’s distate for foxgirls has been noted by the Furluminati, and elite yifftroopers are en-route to his current location to either suppress or re-educate him as necessary. Fnord.)

  18. EyeMessiah says:

    That’s some awesome music. Does anyone know what it is?

  19. Sam says:

    The whole game is still in the works, and is still very enjoyable. Can’t wait till it gets a dedicated server.

  20. Mr T says:

    Strange a girl who said that she was a fox came on steam group chat today

  21. Ryx says:

    Excitable!? ME?! NO! THAT CAN’T BE! AAAAAAAA
    Also the music is from Lady Laika http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/45684
    thanks for using my tip.
