DIY Gamer first took a look at Wild Shadow Studios’ brilliantly original F2P arcade-shooter MMORPG Realm of The Mad God back at the end of 2010, and the game has only grown since then. The developers are probably dancing naked in the streets with glee right now, as what started out as a development-jam contest entry over at TIGSource (amusingly only winning 3rd place at the time) has now grown into the latest game in the rapidly expanding free-to-play library on Steam.The game has been polished, refined and generally tuned up quite a bit from when we last saw it, too. Hardware acceleration now comes as standard, so those those folks with fancy GPUs will be able to run around the (formerly very CPU-dependent) 8-bit world and zap critters without a hitch. Netcode seems to have been improved somewhat as well, which is good, as the last thing you want to lose a character to is a bite from the dreaded lag-monster. The game now also boasts a range of official Steam achievements, and integrates with your Steam account, meaning you don’t have to remember an additional login anymore.Loot ahoy!
