Stein.world is a new free-to-play real-time browser based MMORPG with many common features of the MMO and multiplayer genre: a persistent and diverse 2d pixel fantasy world, hundreds of quests and cool items, dungeons, crafting, server rankings and much more to come. In addition, all it takes to embark on this online RPG adventure is a device with a modern internet browser installed. Play on PC (Windows, mac OS or Linux), a tablet or mobile device (Android or iOS).
It's as simple as opening a website in your browser – because that's literally all you have to do!
What originally started as a small and fun hobby project and exercise in HTML5 coding has slowly evolved into a popular full blown F2P retro MMORPG experience. The player can embark on numerous adventures and fight a variety of different enemies and monsters. They are able to learn various professions like mining, herbalism or tailoring in order to craft epic pieces of equipment and consumables. They can trade with each other, chat or unite in a group of up to five people to face the numerous threats of the dungeons & wave dungeons together. Stein.world offers a wide range of different types of items, so players can customize their character and classes to their liking. There is no strict class system within the game; the items themselves dictate the play style. That and much more awaits players within stein.world, while they’re on their epic quest to recover their lost family heirloom: the eponymous family beer stein. In addition the 2D fantasy RPG stein.world is theoretically capable of running on any device or smartphone that can run a modern internet browser. The online browser game does not require any download, plugin or add-on. “Play anywhere, at any time, on anything.”
A new and unique browser game concept – developed closely with the best community. Stein.world is an entirely free-2-play web MMORPG in an old-school 2D pixel look (16 bit). The top role-playing game relies on an active action combat system, meaning the player needs to dodge and execute attacks actively. Aside from the already implemented RPG features the game is continually expanded with regular content updates. The next patch will introduce a housing and farming system that will allow players to maintain their own farm. Alongside the introduction of corresponding professions, players will have even more possibilities to prepare for their dangerous adventures. Those possibilities include cooking buff food or brewing their own potions from the crop yields of their own farms. In addition of the gameplay expansions the developers behind stein.world are currently working on optimizing the UI and controls for the mobile experience of the web game as well as developing dedicated client apps for Android and iOS. Stein.world is an entirely free2play MMORPG game. There are no pay walls for any of the already existing or upcoming gameplay features. The MMORPG game offers a fair pay to skip model for some of the gameplay elements. There is no option to buy better equipment for real life currency. The aim of the studio is to avoid splitting the player base and to avoid creating a pay to win environment like many other browser and web games do.
We added some balancing changes to address the issues of that the game just gets way to hard at a certain point.
To give a better overview of what is planned next for Stein, I created this little roadmap for you. Be aware, this roadmap only shows our current plan and can change at any time!
We released a hotfix, to address most of the latest bugs, which got introduced with the v0.3.18c patch. If you find more, please report them through
/bug command in chat, the bug button in the options or in our Discord server.
We added better controls for mobile and desktop, together with a lot of other game feedback like new sounds and visuals. Calling this a hotfix is probably an understatement. Have fun!
We reworked the existing classes and added Hunter, Warlock and Shaman as new classes. This allows us to introduce PvP to stein.world which you can already get a first taste of, by challenging other players to a duel!
