DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that role-playing games, or RPGs, go beyond video-games? The Final Fantasy series, Tales of Symphonia, and Dragon Quest VIII are some popular ones. Other forms of RPGs are experiencing a boom in the industry too. Table-top and pen-and-paper (PnP) RPG games are the earliest forms of RPGs. These type of games like Dungeon and Dragon V and Orc Nest are popular again. This is because of the help of the community-sourced funding and live streaming.
Live-action role-playing game or LARP game is a type of game where a player or a group of players play in the real world. They work together to try and complete missions to win the game. LARP games use fantasy and science fiction as inspirations. Horror-inspired LARP games are popular now because of TV shows like The Walking Dead. MOO-MUD are dungeon games that have goals that rely on objects to complete. They give players a detailed and colorful picture of dungeons or different worlds. It will then ask them a series of “what-will-you-do” questions to see if they can survive and get out of the dungeon. MOO-MUD games came before Massive Multi-player Online (MMO) RPGs became popular. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite are some of the best Android RPGs around. They came out recently but they are already very popular with online gamers. These games have popularized the battle royale genre and are an instant hit. They are available for free on PCs, consoles, as well as iOS devices. There are some who want to play offline when they don't have access to an Internet connection. These new types of players have plenty of choices to pick from too.
