Realm of the Mad God is a Flash-based free-to-play MMO from Wild Shadow Studios featuring co-op play focusing players on finding and defeating Oryx the Mad God. Along the way, players have but to survive by killing monsters, taking their stuff, and leveling up. Oh, yeah, and there’s permadeath.
Players start by rolling one of the basic classes for a character, and then begin the level trek to 20, currently the game’s level cap. Advanced characters are unlocked by reaching level 20 with a basic character. For example, to unlock the Mystic class, players must first reach level 20 with the Huntress and Necromancer classes. This adds a unique game element to the MMO genre that perhaps only Realm of the Mad God has.
Once your character dies, player must roll another one if they wish to continue. Achievements and Fame Ranks come to the players who manage to keep a character alive long enough. Characters who make it level 20 may take on The Mad God himself!
