Steins;Gate Travels Back In Time To 8-Bit Era

Recommended Videos

Mages (formerly known as 5pb), have a new game in development for Windows PCs, as part of a new PC software brand: Steins;Gate 8-bit. This is an 8-bit version take on the Steins;Gate franchise, attempting to emulate the look of old  with both art and sound having been redone to reflect the 8-bit aesthetic.

 

Similar to older computer games, you’ll also be entering commands to perform actions in Steins;Gate 8-bit. For instance, you’ll use commands like “open” and “door” to open a door, or a “talk” command to talk to someone.

 

Interestingly, this isn’t a remake (demake?) of the original Steins;Gate — it’s some sort of new spin-off story, featuring the game’s cast. Mages will release Steins;Gate 8-bit on October 28th for 5,040 yen.
