You May Enter The Realm Of The Mad God Via Steam

Somewhere along the line, cooperative MMO bullet hell shooter Realm of the Mad God became a real thing. I was looking the other way when it happened, perhaps getting a haircut that required my head to be pointing in exactly the opposite direction, otherwise I'd have noticed and not had to rewrite this opening paragraph where I'd previously claimed it was being released now. So,…

IGF Factor 2012: Realm of the Mad God

Here, Wild Shadow Studios chat about their and its origins and future, getting away from boring MMO combat, and the most important question of all.

The Games of Christmas ’11: Day 15

Christmas is a time for giving. A time for giving every spare second of your time to a doomed quest for meaningless glory that no-one else will ever care about. (Christmas is also a time for party-sized tubs of delicious savoury treats such as Mini Cheddars, Cheeselets and dry-roasted peanuts, but that's another story).

Lords of the Realm: The Mad God’s Makers

Recently, a videogame almost destroyed my life, my mind and the possibility of my ever sleeping again. That game was free browser MMO/roguelike/twin-stick shooter Realm of the Mad God, and despite it being a malevolent presence that should be really eradicated from all existence in order to protect the innocent, it's also fast on its way to being my favourite game of the year so…

Ramblings Of The Mad God, Day 3: Patience

Continuing a diary of attempts to best free indie MMO Realm of the Mad God Day two? No, you must be mistaken. There was never any day two, and thus no need to write about it. And if you ever hear that there was a day two, or anything about how many heroes tragically met their end within mere minutes as a result of a…

Ramblings of The Mad God, Day 1: Folly

The plan: a document of ultimate triumph in Realm of the Mad God. Culminating, no doubt, in a climactic mano-a-mano encounter with the titular Mad God himself, Oryx. I have plan. I will execute it. I will document it. I shall not waver. It will be flawless. I will be legendary. The reality: a pathetic non-saga of greed and failure.

Realm Of The Mad God Has Ruined Me

Sometimes, a game comes along that’s the absolute last bloody thing you need right now. There are many things I need right now: time, a haircut, lunch, the extension of about 48 deadlines, someone to do my shopping for me, a cat that can empty its own litter tray, a keyboard that doesn’t give me an RSI, a teleporter, and even more time. There is…

Realm Of The Mad God: Still Exists, Still Mad

Kieron sends word that Mythic's Paul Barnett sends word that Realm of the Mad God is one of his games of the year. Well! Jim posted about RotMG back in January, and following a quick investigation I can report that it's still the rockin' free-to-play massively multiplayer fantasy RPG shooter that it always was. Yes. How that works is that you send your character skittering…

Realm Of The Mad God

Okay, I am just working through game links here, so apologies for the volley of random Flash game links. This one is extra-plus awesome however, and discovered via the ultra-fertile sediment that is the TIGSource forums. Realm Of The Mad God is a "massively co-op fantasy adventure", and that means acutely lo-fi multiplayer killing of ghosts and stuff, helping random people as you progress. You…
