What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While the game is fully playable now, we wish to place this game in Early Access as not all in-game content is done (nor will it ever be, this is an Online RPG after all) and we have more features we wish to get into the final build. We hope to use Early Access not as an excuse for bugs or unfinished content, but as a tool with which to make the game be the best it can be with the help of all of you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to be out of Early Access within a year!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The "full version" of Life Forge will be very similar, though it will have many more features such as enchanting items, more item types, general polish, things like that.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently in Alpha v1.0.95. We expect to be out of Early Access by the time we leave Beta!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Life Forge is, and will always remain, free to play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our community is deeply involved with the development of Life Forge. There is rarely a suggestion that we do not take seriously. Our community is enthusiastic about being a part of Life Forge, and we love it!”

About This Game

Life Forge is a Free 2D Online RPG. Take part in this sprawling adventure as you explore a massive world, gather resources to craft gear, engage in PvE and PvP, and buddy up with your friends to conquer end-game bosses! With lovingly made custom art, a variety of fun and engaging features, and the heart and soul of a tight-knight community, Life Forge promises to be a game to remember!

Life Forge is an ORPG designed to be what you make of it.

The story is simple, you are found unconscious along a shore line by an elderly man who leads you to his home for shelter. There, the player soon realizes they have no memories, of course and the world in Life Forge is all new to them. From here, the players life is whatever they make it. A Life Forge, if you will.

In the world of Life Forge there is lots to do and be a part of. Players can become great and powerful heroes or, if they wish, villains and take part in quests, explore dungeons and have PvP battles in arenas. If a player decides they don't want to run around and take part in adventurous deeds then they won't have to. In Life Forge crafting is available as well, so If a player wishes then they can harvest all sorts of goods to create a variety of items. All of which they can either use for themselves or sell to other players. Guild and Player housing are also planned features for the game, giving players another little slice of variety and choices which will make their game play unique.​


Mount System

Use mounts to travel faster! Different mounts will travel at different speeds and there will be several to choose from.

Character Creation

Choose your characters gender and their hair style. We plan to add new races as well.

Death and Revive system

When your character dies, you will have 60 seconds to either wait and be revived by another player or respawn back at your last check point.

*Note: You can press "V" to respawn anytime within that 60 seconds.


Use materials to craft items and gear! Crafted items will generally be better then what you would find at a shop.

Custom Graphics

Stamina and Weight system

Items have weight and your character has stamina. The more weight you're carrying the less stamina you will have which will cause your character to move slower. Stamina can be raised through strength and endurance.

Boss Framework

Each boss is created to be unique for a more enjoyable boss battle. Custom programming for each boss is put into the game, so expect a challenge!

Threat System

Your character will gain threat when in battle! Be prepared, enemies will attack the fighter with the most threat first. There are also taunt skills to increase your threat even more, for those who feel bold anyways.

Quests with Quest log and Tracker

Keep track of your quest progress and pin the ones most important! By clicking on the quest while in to quest log, the quest(s) will pinned to the game screen for easy tracking!

Talent System

There are three different skill trees to apply talent points too, giving players the chance to make their character a unique and fun experience.

And of course we have all the basic needs of an ORPG...
Projectile Weapons
Blinding Spells
Invisibility Spells
Spell Casting and Projectile Enemies
Paperdolled Items
Zelda-Like Puzzle Systems
Player Houses
Auction House
Player Run Economy
Many other fun features!
