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?

Your home looks so much better than mine. Mine is just basic stone on stone with a little interior box built of wood where I started out. No furniture or anything other than the mandatory table/chair/torch combo except in my crafting room and my storage chest room. I just treat it as a place to go back to when I need to drop my shit off. I don't see the ivy whip in your list of items so I'm guessing you're using the jet boots?

Mine always wind up as big towers with long, unremarkable rooms for the NPCs and some nicer room for me at the top. I like a little decorating, but it's mostly functional stuff for me.

The newest patch adds a hotkey for the grappling hook/Ivy Whip so you don't have to have it in your quickbar. I think the default key is "E".

Hot damn, I didn't know about that. Thanks Boogie. I really haven't played more than a couple of hours of 1.6, so I'll have to see how that works.

My base is some kind of narrow tower with only the most basic things like the crafting stations and tables with chairs for the NPC...I´m actually not that much of a builder...noticed that already when I was still a kid, I´m better at destroying things than at building them :D

Here's a picture of my 'castle', which is more like a pyramid. A fun tip, the double doors prevent zombies from opening them during blood moons. They don't prevent the goblin invaders from tearing them down though.

It was a blast back when it came out, but after collecting all the rare items and armor and what have you, I got kind of bored with it. I know they've added more content, but I haven't gotten back into it.

I made a BK advertisement on your server Chojin. Find it before the company tries to distance themselves away from the tubs.
