8BitMMO Releases Player-Built Dungeons, a New Enemy: Hipsters, and availability on Steam Greenlight

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEATTLE, WA - August 30, 2012 - Archive Entertainment is excited to announce several new updates to 8BitMMO. The game is a construction sandbox where players can build houses, castles, even entire cities in a retro-style massively multiplayer world.

New Enemy: Hipsters - They are known as the most dangerous game, in large part because of their extra health points and propensity to hit players with cans of PBR. Hipsters join the roster of enemies players can fight.

Player-Built Dungeons - Players now have the ability to place monster spawn points and create their own dungeon environments. Players are using the system to make creative dungeons like a coffee shop dungeon for Hipsters, or a post-apocalyptic wasteland for the LawyerCats.

Steam Greenlight - 8BitMMO is now available for users to vote for in Steam Greenlight, Valve's new system to determine which indie games to release on Steam. Please consider voting for us at http://8bitmmo.net/greenlight

PAX - For players at PAX, if you spot someone wearing an 8BitMMO T-Shirt, scan the QR code on the shirt to receive an in-game Building Kit. For attending members of the press, a quick meeting to demo the game can be scheduled by emailing PR@ArchiveEntertainment.com.
