why am i spending all my waking hours playing this what the fuck oh god
in a nutshell, the game is 16-bit 2D minecraft with an emphasis on adventuring and combat.
after a few hours, the game turns into something like a standard RPG, where you go out and adventure and then come home and drop your loot off, talk to NPCs and buy things, etc. the thing is, "home" is something you made entirely yourself and there's something i can't really articulate about that. i run two servers of this, and we'll say things like "okay back to the castle", but the castle is a thing that we built--the game doesn't even know it's a castle, but there's no question that that's what it is.
i also wonder why human evolution and our species causes us to get addicted to games like this--why do we love to build things?
