8-Bit Adventures 2 is a turn-based RPG inspired by the classics such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy but with a modern twist on the gameplay that keeps it fresh while still providing nostalgic retro graphics and soundtracks created by independent developer Critical Games. In our latest video, we took on the early 2020 Steam demo for a test run (a newer version with extra content is available now).
Here’s an overview of 8 Bit Adventures 2:
8-Bit Adventures 2 is everything you love about NES, SNES and PS1-era JRPGs – with all of the charm, heart and soul, but none of the inconvenience.
That means an earnest, engaging storyline; relatable, easy-to-love characters; strategic turn-based battles; deep party customisation; bizarre monsters; an unforgettable soundtrack; and a large, fantastical world, traversed by Airship, and filled with people full of personality – all brought to life by vibrant 8-Bit inspired visuals.
Our modern approach to design ensures no random encounters or mandatory grinding, the freedom to save your game anywhere, and precise pacing which never bogs the player down with pointless filler, and ensures you’re always doing something fun and meaningful over the 20+ hour playtime. From beginning to end, 8-Bit Adventures 2 is focused on telling an engaging story, not wasting your time.
It may be a sequel, but anyone can jump into this brand new JRPG adventure!
