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.'

I have been playing this game for about 11 hours and 20 minutes, and I got last week.
In the beginning you will spawn on a beach surrounded by players you dont know, bizzare mechanisms, mobs, quests and systems. You WILL be confused. Once you find out the only way of getting money is with real money, you'll be ♥♥♥♥♥♥. We all were.

But as you play, as you collect items, fight new monsters, meet new players, make friends, and, inevitably, die, you'll notice how good this game truly is. I've died in the most stupidest of ways, and all because of my stupid decisions, I've lost super OP weapons and gear and I have raged. Oh dear, the amount of rage.

But in the end, its a really good game. 10/10

"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.

Realm of The Mad God, RotMG for short
is an Top-Down bullethell-ish style MMORPG, where you control one of 14 classes to defeat Quest Monsters, complete dungeons, gain wealth, maxing them, gaining experience and making it a legend (for a year or just a week).
As it might sound pretty straightforward, there are somethings that everybody needs to know before giving this game a shot;
  1. The game is PERMADEATH : you die, you die, and with death you gain experience to not die so much. The items and the backpack you carry are risked everytime you encounter an enemy, it is up to you (and internet problems) when you die. This can however mean that you gain enough experience that you will not die in weeks or months, gaining wealth to all of your characters and accounts.
  2. F2p doesn't get you far, atleast without paying in nerves: you've only one character slot, one vault and no backpack. This means you have to carry half of your belongins with you and if you die, you lose everything (except the fame). Ofcourse you can make a "mule" (account that is only used to store items), but that can get in the crossfire of wavebans and DECA wont take time to unban it. Use them at your own risk.
  3. Realm Gold is a huge money sink, you can use up to hundreds of dollars of real cash to the game but you aren't required, it just makes maintaining a wide selection of items way easier.
  4. People are annoying and this game doesn't make a difference. Thankfully you can disable chat completely and to be not bothered by the countless messages that might make you sigh.
  5. Go through all of the available keybinds: they are all customizable and can help you get used to the mechanics of the game.
  6. The current loot-system is very RNG-based. You aren't bound to get rare UnTiered-items, which some are straight upgrades to Tiered ones and some of them completely sitsuational and up to prefrence.
  7. There is a un-official constantly updated wiki/playerbase site Realmeye , where you can most likely find everything you need regarding the game and the players and is an huge infopack to consume and learn about the game without playing it!
Other than the "bad" things I've listed above, I thoroughly enjoy the game and will gladly sink more of my free time in it.

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.

It seems many would judge a game based on graphical appearance.
That's where mostnew players would hesitate to play.

I've played many free-to-play RPG games but this has got to be the most unique solely for it's trading system. When you die you lose all your items in your inventory and character equipped. You also lose your character along with his level/progress. So be sure you store your items in your freely given chest in your vault.

Did I mention how great the currency system is because there is none. Being specifically player driven there's power to the players. Although the game isn't totally free, you can have a great experience.

I find you'll master the game once you die, but you become a grand master when you develop less and less rage with each death until you just start smiling in sarcasm.

*Smiles* I just died. How wonderful. >_< (Recycle & Repeat)

- Have fun.
