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.'

Rotmg is a very challenging game but rewarding to players who like mass multiplayer RPGs. With Deca Games taking over Realm, me and many others are having high hopes with the future!

One thing I would like from Deca is some new UTs, or (if possible) some new classes to add more variety and play time to the game!

I have faith in you Deca!!!

I played this game a year or two ago without much interest for it. After being away from home for the past month, I decided I would give this game another try.

When I started playing again I never saw myself sitting down and dedicating 12 straight hours playing this game. It's simple, fun, and an amazing time burner to play with friends that still requires some skill and hard work. In one day I burned through 10 new characters in frustration from my own mistakes, but I kept coming back again and again to try and set a record for myself. This easy to play hard to master game had me strategizing with friends, each death and fame earned a lerning experience for me to improve.

In the past two years the community has changed drastically. Yes, you will always find that one or two guys arguing and causing problems between eachother, but collectively the attitude has improved. Before, it was rare to find help unless you had things to bargain with. Now, right from the Nexus people are giving away free T5 weapons and armor to help new players make their way.

Overall, this game has my respect. For whatever it's worth to you, I highly reccomend you give this game a shot.

I've played this game for nearly 5 years now and I still love it! It's been through a ton, some lows, some highs, and now with the new owners, Deca, there's nothing but good things to come for RotMG! If you love bullet hells and think you can dodge, then definitely try this one out!

Personally my favorite game but i will be unbias. Its a very fun and addicting game. It takes time to build up but once you get there its good til you die. The game is a game where you can die and lose that character for ever, so its best to play hard but safe.

Hello

before I'm writing my actual review, I just wanna say that I have over 3000 hours in this game, i can't give you an exact number but that's probably the minimum.
I play this game on the website and in the flash projector (standalone for less lag)
I also make videos about this game so check out my channel if you are interested, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4EZa3q2gtberPdaBW1Qa3w

This game has huge potential, and a short time ago a new company took over the game, taking it from an old moneyhungry company that took away a lot of the game's potential, meaning that it can't get worse.

Right now is probably your best choice to get back into the game, since they might put in some good stuff.
So for now I'd definetly reccomend joining it, that could change in the future tho, depending on how this goes.

but as I said, it can only stay the same as it is or get better.

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
