About This Game

Realm of the Mad God is the first ever free to play Bullet Hell MMO. Team up with dozens of players and battle through the Realm of the Mad God, Oryx. With a retro 8-bit style, Realm is an evolution of traditional MMO gameplay. A dozen classes and hundreds of items to discover means Realm is easy to play but difficult to master. Players can jump in Realm for 5 minutes or stay online for hours because there is nothing to install or download.

Key Features

  • Action combat! No turn-based battles here, only skilled running and gunning.
  • Epic boss battles. Navigate demented waves of bullets from nasty demons.
  • True cooperative play. All experience is shared and you win by playing together.
  • Great 8-bit art: Retro styling straight from the 8-bit era.
  • Over a dozen unique character classes. Play as a powerful wizard, a clever mystic, a brawling warrior.
  • Loot! Hundreds of weapons, potions, armors, and rings.
  • PermaDeath. Dying well means something in Realm. Earn fame if you survive for long enough and kill enough monsters.
  • Sheep. The sheep say 'Baa.'

THIS WILL HAVE TWO PARTS PVE AND PVP.

PVE
so i got the game. make a toon it has 1,2,3,4, pages of making one. then time to give it a name. name i want is taken ok but... it backs me out to page 1 and i have to repick everything for my toon again. this took like 15m as i really wanted a variant of that name. so now i get to long into game. befor i even move using w,a,s,d, i fall thro the floor of the viking area into water. ok its a new game so i relog get back into game now i am on a floor and i am able to use w,a,s,d, and read all the tool tips. now this part of the game i loved the graphics looked good, sound was great. i leave the main town i am atked by and npc right near the exit of the main town. i ran not knowing what lv the npc was and the town guards killed it. the controls are close to mount and blade warband and so is combat. i join a guild all nice guys and gave me a few tips. also i read a bit about the game befor i got it so i would know how to spend my str, dex, hp, points. so i was told i should go at lv 1 and kill lv 1-9 npcs near town i did but i found a lv 23 when i was only lv 2. i was able to kill it and i had 75% or so of my hp left. only do this if you are good at mount and blade warband as the exp is well worth it. so imo pve is great

PVP
ok so i goto a town with pplz from my clan we atk said town it had no players that i could see. a few npcs. we break a few gates with our spears and swords and take said town. i get paid for helping kinda like a mini quest i guss. then i goto a tournament where if you die you lose nothing ok great good way to get exp and test my skills. haha lol. its 19 vs 21 we had the 21. so its what team can get more kills in say 10m. its was 13 to over 100 near the end of the tournament my side lost. the lag i went thro was bad. i would be hitting someone and think i am doing great next thing i knew i was on the floor dead while the person i thought i was atking had little to no dmg. so imo PVP needs a lot of work befor its worth anything and since its the main part of the game well to me anyways i would say wait to get this game till they fix lag also i would say game is worth as is 10.00-15.00 so wait for a sale.

This is a good game to spend time on if you want to do something just for fun. The game is rogue like with MMO aspects to it. Also it's an great game in terms of concept, every single class is fun to play.

This weird pixel graphic action mmo dungeon crawler with rogue-like elements was created a long time ago by a small company called wildshadow. After years of awesomeness they had to sell it to kabam to keep the game going, kabam kept it going for some more years also, and now finally it's in the hands of Deca(Thankfully being revived by them after kabam's dark era). I've been with this game for so long i keep coming back to it, the 1000+ hours i have here are only with the steam account(had 2 older accounts before this one). I'm mentioning this so you get the idea that this game is very hard to kill, the people just wanna play this ****. If you're thinking about playing this game let me transfer some of my genuine info to you :). The game is extremely grind-based, so if you're not someone who likes to grind for endless hours everyday then this game should be a pass for you before i even go any further. Now for some pros and cons.

+ Huge variety of enemies/bosses/events with unique variations of butt-clenching bullet hell patterns and tactics.
+ More than big enough player base( very active game)
+ Huge variety of items that adds to the already great replayabilty value of the game.
+ The game is based alot on team play and as mentioned above there's always people to play along with.
+ The game is being properly revived by Deca games and right now is the best time to start playing this game. (Month of the mad god, a special month, will run from 21 july till around the end of august).

- The community(Like most gaming communities) can be very toxic at times. Not as toxic as moba communities don't worry :)
- Lag in this game can punish you extremely high as it is a perma-death game. You need to take caution from both server lag and your own internet lag as not to lose a month work in a second. If you have a decently stable internet connection you should be safe from a lag related death most of the time though.
- Client users/Hacker/Dupers/Bots love to manifest this game; BUT Deca(unlike kabam) is already showing alot of promise in making this a thing of history(fingers crossed).

Conclusion: Definitely a strong recommendation from me, i absoloutely love this game, and you won't have to pay a dime to try it so you should definitely do that. 9/10

"This game is pay2win"
Guess where the items pro players use come from?
NOT the store, they play, get drops, store them.

I love this game. Playing it is like a rollercoaster. You get scared when it gets dangerous, you get alot of satisfaction riding it. But for every char, no matter how good you play, there is ALWAYS an end.

But you know what? It's a game, ofc, you lose your items that you were farming for weeks. But hey, now you learned what you shouldn't do at that place you died at.

If you're going to play this game for hundreds of hours, read this:

Do not buy
weapons / armor, any type of ingame item.

Do buy
Charakter slots, Vault slots. After getting a few of them, you basically bought the game.

This game has a long and fabled history.

It began as an indie game concieved by the lengendary wildshadow studios.

It was brought by a big AAA company, Kabam.

And now it lies in the hand of yet another indie game company, Deca games.

This game is suprisingly amazing. A simple concept, flawlessly executed, for near-perfection. It's been a pay-to-win game in it's Kabam era, but in the Deca games era, I hope it will return to pay for convience. The lack of friends playing this game, and it's aforementioned monetary supplication system are what made me stop playing it, but it's a great game to waste hours in.

The interesting combination of genres lends to it's replayablity, and honestly it's what's kept me coming back to it, time and time again.

I would reccommend playing it in between more serious games. :)

The best thing about this MMO is that you can totally ignore other people and play it as a single-player game. This may also be it's greatest drawback, as there seem to be few opportunities for the social interactions that give other MMOs a sense of story and belonging. The most stand-out "feature" of Realm of the Mad God is it's perma-death system, but once you get deeper into it, it turns out that it doesn't actually have perma-death. Rather than building up the character you are playing as, Realm of the Mad God is actually about leveling up the little Pokemon who follow you around.

The really good Pokemon ("pets" whatever. we know they're all actually Pokemon) are the ones that heal you, and the best class to play as would be the Necromancer, whose attacks not only effectively damage enemies but also effectively heal your character. Once having unlocked the Necromancer, why would anyone play RotG as any other class? RotG's class system suffers from the same problem as Final Fantasy V's Job System: there are a few kickass jobs you max out before too long, and then a whole bunch of useless jobs you don't really need to bother with because what they offer is either too similar to what you've already got or else so specialized that they can rarely be utilized effectively.

Anyway, I can't recommend this as an MMORPG. But I can recommend it as a casual game. If you've got an audiobook to get through and want something mindless to grind away at while listening then Realm of the Mad God is the perfect MMORPG for you. Just ignore other players, get some healing Pokemon and be a Necromancer.
