Here’s a new MMO rolling out to Steam today: It’s a Brazilian MMO called Azusa RP Online. If you’re a fan of pixel games or something like Tibia or Stardew Valley, that’s the style of graphics you’ll be looking at here. On the other hand, the “RP” in the game’s name is not a joke; studio Inutaishos – which is actually one man, Victor Luis Santos – likens it to “table top RPGs,” with everything from extensive character customization, multi-generation characters, player-built cities, playable villains, on and on. Also time-traveling because why not?
“Azusa RP Online is a 16 bit-like 2D top-down MMORDG in which you can develop your character as much as you wish and your actions can change everything in the world you live in. Unlock new races, build your playstyle, work in different jobs, train with masters, and interact with other players! […] In Azusa RP Online you start your quest as a civilian, a fighter or a master, and you can end as a king or a god. Drive your hero throughout different dungeons and villages that other users created, and progress through time –you can even play as a next generation of your previous character!”
The game has gone straight to launch on Steam for $18.99 – no early access shenanigans here. The dev also has a Patreon that bestows additional perks in-game.
