What is RPG?
Role-playing game, aka RPG, is a category of video games based on the gameplay elements of classic desktop role-playing games. In a role-playing game, single or multiple characters, who are described by a set of numerical characteristics, which can change during the game, are controlled by the player. One of the characteristic gameplay elements is to increase the capabilities of the character by improving their parameters and learning new abilities.
Usually, the user controls one or more main characters (party) and wins after accomplishing assignments (quests), participating in tactical combat and reaching the ending of the plot. A key attribute of RPG is that the characters become stronger and gain new capabilities, which are often controlled by the player.
RPG’s usually rely on an interesting plot and detailed graphics. The gameplay is generally divided into multiple tasks («quests»). The user appoints the character orders, which he performs in accordance with the numerical indicators relating to this order. When the character earns a specific number of experience points, he gets to the next level, which makes these indicators increase.
Necessary components for the RPG app development
It describes how to design, alter and develop characters in order to make them more effective in the game.
- The user controls single (incarnation, avatar) or multiple (group, party) particular characters. This is a must for all RPG’s. Unlike strategies, these characters ought to be exclusive and have names.
- Player gradually improves characteristics and skills (via in-game values, most often experience points obtained for finishing tasks and exploring the map).
- In the walkthrough, the player’s character has to make checks of his characteristics, abilities, and skills.
- Characters can improve their characteristics, capabilities, and skills with equipment elements. It is potentially possible to create a video RPG without equipment. The absence of equipment items can serve as an identifying sign of adventure games, which often use the supply exclusively for items that are used for solving puzzles.
It is the description of the character’s movement around the game world, everything he can find, see and what he can interact with. For example, game areas, items and other objects.
- User character is allowed to interact with the game zone and find new game areas.
- User character has the ability to find items and store those items in the inventory. It is potentially possible to create a computer RPG that does not have the inventory.
- User character is capable of finding data sources. Finding the data source is a must for role-playing games.
It includes all components of the story, such as the game world, its history, characters, dialogues, tasks, descriptions, storylines and how these components interact.
- User character benefits from data sources (receive hints, goals, tasks, skills, spells, training). This component has a close relation to the third essential element of the Research category. After the source is found, you need to receive its information.
- User character can finish quests (at least one plot quest is available).
- User character moves up the chain of related events and plays a role in them.
It explains the impact of the role system, exploration and plot on the outcome of a battle or other conflict.
- Effectiveness in battle depends on the character’s abilities and skills (the amount of damage, the chance of hitting, the possibility of using certain types of weapons and so on). A combat system that is not related to the character’s abilities and skills means the game relies solely on the player’s skills.
- In combat, there is an element of randomness (rolls of in-game dice). Virtually all computer role-playing games have virtual dice rolls and probabilistic functions.
