Those of you following me and my adventures on this blog know I am a terrible gamer. I just cannot play video games that require moving, shooting, running and escaping even if my real life would depend on it.
I do like how it all looks though and I guess that’s my problem: I love to look around and admire the graphics, the colours and everything and then before I have found the right button to push it is in most cases like the subject of this blogpost ‘You’ve died, and have been thrown from this reality!‘ .
That’s okay with me, I will stick to Candy Crush Soda and Mahjong. Also fun….ahem.
As I was exploring a bit at night I ended up in Electrobit City. A game. In 8-bit style, nintendo etcetera and it looks super cute. The game uses Experience Tools and so I tried to give it a go, curious on what would happen.
Not much, to be honest, but then….maybe I did it all wrong? I had a good time walking around though, and the surprise teleports to a next level (the experience tools do that for you) were fun! It is a must see if you like old skool 8-bit games, and once this Electrobit City is fully working I am sure it could be a hit.
One of the objects I accidentally ran into informed me that the region and game are still being developed and in Beta-phase meaning not everything works and there are bugs. This could also explain why I wasn’t able to play.
Playing or not, it is definitely worth a visit, if only because it looks awesome!

This looks interesting – definitely going to have to remember to check it out!
thank you for the reblog Kat :)
lol, that looks great. I always have a soft spot for high quality 8bit retro games. Takes me back.
It looks great yes! And also odd, to see a full mesh kitted out SL avatar looking so out of place ….fun!
I love Electrobit city, if I have a game inspired blog post I go here :D
Haha, I can totally see you there, all the pink stuffs! :)
Very cool, kind of reminds me of Minecraft. Will be fun to check that out.
Ah yes, Minecraft..I have not seen/played that, so I had to be told one of the pics looked like it :) Shows my ignorance when it comes to gaming eh! But I think you will like it, although it is maybe not working yet!
