8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey

8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey is the newest release from Critical Games.

Created as a homage to the classic 8-Bit Role-Playing Games (RPGs) of the '80s and '90s, 8-Bit Adventures tells the story of an old game cartridge on the brink of destruction. Unplayed for years, it now sits lost and forgotten, covered in dust and slowly being reclaimed by the elements. Struggling against the inevitable, this cartridge sets in motion a plan - a plan, it hopes, that will subvert its fate and save the world within its circuits from total annihilation...

Inside the game, three people - a warrior, a thief, and a mage - wake up to find that all the colour has been drained from their world, petrifying all of the townspeople! To restore their home, they must collect the three coloured Orbs by exploring dark dungeons and battling dangerous monsters. But this is only the beginning of their journey...

I was blown away. The story for this game is incredible, and there is a HUGE twist that I suspect will make this one of the best indie RPGs of 2013.
