The lights are on
Meet NEStalgia. This online RPG reimagines the MMO as it might have been if 8-bit systems had Internet connections. Best of all, it's absolutely free.
Indie Games has a great write-up about this intriguing new release, which has you exploring a Final Fantasy 1-style world and combat system, but with World of Warcraft-style quests, character customization, and team-up options.
Check out the video below to see NEStalgia in action, and if you like what you see, you can download and play it for free from the official site. I'm definitely going to give it a try this weekend.
