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.'

drops way to low for how bad it is when you die. its a waste of time and/or money trust me. you can grind all day being bored af and the only reason you are still playing is hoping you will get something good but never do... please just stay away from this game. its a trap.

"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.

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.

Deca Games is breathing new life into this game that has been long lost. After Kabam took it over myself and many others thought downhill was the only way this game would go. But now is probably the best time to get into the game or even get back into it if you'd formerly quit. After all Deca's already been putting in more work than Kabam ever had and ever would have. We love you Deca <3.

I have way more than 146 hours, I most likely have 1000+ easy. I witnessed alot of ♥♥♥♥ storms Realm has went through such as Swatsec, The leaked T13+, Multiple instances of just straight of jank such as constantly lagging servers, or randomly disappearing characters and so on. But I still keep coming back to this game. Why? Because it's ♥♥♥♥ing great. 10/10 bb
