Who's 8BitBoy?

8BitBoy is out of a job, and quite frankly he's depressed about it. Then he suddenly remembers all the good times he had as a kid, playing his trusted 8-bit console. He finds it in the far and darkest corner of the basement along with a strange looking cartridge. He plugs in the cartridge right away, and get sucked into this vivid world of platforming. And this is where your adventure takes off. 

This is the platformer for PC/Mac you have been waiting for all this time and it's finally here.

The future of PC and Mac is apps

8BitBoy is one of the first engaging full size PC/Mac titles to be distributed as an app. Until now PC and Mac apps has been for casual games and widgets only, but it's time embrace the future and start using serious apps on these platforms too. I hope 8BitBoy can help to push this trend forward for a easier tomorrow without disc based games. This is so long overdue.
