Realm of the Mad God gets invaded by aliens and readies a remaster

    
4

So here’s an MMO that we haven’t talked about on Massively OP since, um, 2017? Hey, there are a lot of games out there, and Realm of the Mad God isn’t usually the one to be making breaking headlines. However, this scrappy pixel permadeath game deserves to be noticed this summer thanks to two factors: an alien invasion and its upcoming remastered update.

Last week’s Alien Invasion patch saw an extraterrestrial armada making planetfall in this fantasy world, and now players have to be on the alert for any nearby invasions. If adventurers are successful in their efforts, they’ll actually board a UFO to fight the final boss and then jump into wormholes to run gauntlet-style encounters on other worlds.

Past that, a completely new version of the game is in the works called Realm of the Mad God Remastered. This version will feature full-screen HD graphics, an improved interface, and a backbone based on Unity software. Don’t worry about your progress, as all players will be able to port their accounts over when the Remastered version goes live. It’s being developed in parallel with the current version of Mad God and should come out later this year.

I go back and forth between this and the new game that the original ROTMG Devs are making (Steambirds Alliance). Steambirds Alliance isn’t open every day so I jump back and forth between it and ROTMG.

I just had a skill based game itch that needed scratching lately. When Steambirds Alliance opened, it brought that urge to play this kind of game back in me and then it wasn’t open every day so I returned to ROTMG. Sadly I wasn’t able to recover my old account through the recovery system so I started a new one.

I went in this other multiplayer permadeath game lately, though it’s only a limited up to 4 people multiplayer one on Steam named 神明在上(Zengeon). I’m not one of the people who does that well at hardcore games but my experience with playing some permadeath games like ROTMG and Steambirds Alliance let me breeze through Zengeon (I died one time ever on the first map getting used to the game before breezing through the entire thing straight after that).

It’s amazing the amount of people who buy what is supposed to be a hardcore permadeath game and complain that it’s difficult (especially one that’s not!). They expect to play it like so many games have got them playing over the years, standing still in one spot spamming skills and health pots.

I will play those games too if they have something in them making it worth it, the story or whatever, *some* kind of strategy, etc. But that type of play is so boring to me.

I don’t know what’s happening with a lot of games, too many of them are time based and take no skill. Others the only skill is spamming pots and skills.

Mobile is extremely popular and almost always contains an autoplay button ruining the experience. Yeah, you don’t *have* to use it the Devs tell us, but when everybody else in the game is using it and the autoplay basically plays perfectly and the games get grindy as well, it is very hard not to fall into using them. It’s like keeping lots of tasty snacks right in front of your face and saying “But you don’t have to eat them.” It’s tempting that they’re there and it would be much better if the option wasn’t so easy to take.

I tried this once. I like this pixelated style but didn’t play long. It’s kind of crazy but fun at the same time.

Crazy but fun is very accurate.
