I grew up on top down shooters. Angles adjusted by terrain is fun.

General Discussion / Old School PvP MMO - PBN

After nearly 2 decades, Paintball Net (PBN) is back!

Play paintball online! Go head to head against players from around the world! Paint each other pink and cyan! Mark up the simple-minded bots so the machines learn who’s boss! Paint the trees, the grass, and the sides of mountains! All without stinging welts, steaming masks, and poison ivy!

Multiplayer, online, and pain free. What more do you want???

Do you want to play in PVP “battle royales”? Do you want survival games, team games, and more? Do you want to modify your equipment so it fits your style? Do you want sci-fi equipment like infrared scanners and Predator-like refracto suits? Paintball Net has all of that!

Plus, Paintball Net has always been as much a community as a game. So don’t be intimidated by experienced players. Ask questions. Hang out. Make friends. Then paint them funny colors! =)

Originally online from 1996-2000, Paintball Net’s 2D PVP experience predates Google! Windows 95 was still new! If you’re looking for a retro-MMO game, Paintball Net has serious 90’s cred.

to me

Find me an artist who can mimic the existing style, who isn't
outrageously expensive, and will deliver somewhat quickly, and there are
all sorts of possibilities. =)


This post has been created by the community of this game. This is a very early genre of the "hardcore PvP" so our hopes are very high for art that could or would not so deeply offend modern gamers. The art will absolutely create a resurgence with previous players too. You probably will have to learn game play to get a feel for the essence of the game too. We have organized events, and the chat room is a big part of the game. We invite anyone interested to post here or try and find people in game, and simply announce who you are. Every player will brainstorm with artists to help gain any insight that is need for said artist.

4. Pixel art is 30x30, and no dev work is needed, but if you could lobby our dev to adjust the back end for even higher resolution, it would turn out to be a better project I do believe. The game was originally coded in Delphi and was ported to Node.js for server side, and client side is react framework.

5. Based on overall total scope, and end result. Open to negotiation as this will be a once in lifetime event for the game. Our dev believes in paying for work, and is a regular support of artists offline. The community is active, and supportive of our dev.

6. Please visit our discord at:
   Facebook at:

Or simply reply to this post.

The dev is not impossible to get a hold of, but being such a community driven game I would suggest exploring the community and game as well. A 24-48 hour turn around is normal for our dev to respond to us. Not sure if we will get many looking to work or not. This game has survived 20 years, and the right artist will be a legend to our community. We hope you are here!
