Review – Realm of the Mad God (via Wild Shadow Studios)

Realm of the Mad God? What? Yes. A hack and slash minecraft-type game that is unforgiving at higher levels. If you watched my gameplay, you’ll see that it’s super simple to get into, and infinitely vast as you go about smashing baddies.

Think of it this way: It’s minecraft-Diablo Hell mode. When you die. You die forever. Keep those potions ready, you’ll need them!

IGN said: “This stylish indie MMO has loads of staying power to match its unique concept. Realm of the Mad God is an accessible arcade-style bullet hell action blends with RPG nerdiness in some truly potent ways…Easy to jump into and damn near impossible to quit.”

PCGAMER said: “It’s a combination of Rogue, Robotron and Diablo…where you’re never given a reason to stop running, shooting, or farming experience – until you die, and your character is deleted forever. It’s a game that’s happy to discard your efforts in a heartbeat… you’re invited to participate exactly as much as you want, whether that’s jumping in for 20 minutes or dedicating yourself to unlocking every class, buying every hat, and killing every god. It’s your choice, after all – just don’t be surprised if people think you’re mad for trying.”

Roll GREED. If you like this? Then you’ll have endless hours of playtime!
