    Alright, sorry for the double post but I think I just played the kind of hero you don’t see all that often. I was on a quest to kill a large red dragon to get that shiny gold apple… this guy killed TWO. And was rocking some sick stats, including 21 atk, full mithril gear, and at his height over 1800 gold. Here are some pics:

    This actually deeply saddens me.

    Lots of new faces here, but I’m still seeing a few old-timers lurking the discord. I first played MnB2 nearly 9 years ago, back when Flash games were in their hey-day and there was actual good content made. Although I understand why Flash is so close to its deathbed, it’s not even really the platform that I’m gonna miss the most.

    It’s the quality of games.

    It seems these days most games are either money-grubbing “freemium” games or triple A titles that lack the good ol’-fashioned soul these old Flash games exuded. With the rise of piracy and the changing tastes, maybe we’re heading towards a future without solid indie games, especially not for free. Despite all the shiny new titles that come out year after year, something about these old Flash games always manages to bring me back to them when I get some free time – at any rate, I feel sorry for the next generation of kids who grow up having only known Clash of Clans and Call of Duty.

    Here’s to reminiscing over a bygone era.
