What is LitRPG?

LitRPG is the genre you’ve been looking for!

My name is Aleron Kong and I am a writer in a relatively new genre called LitRPG.

My series, The Land, has 100,000 5-star reviews and I am Audible’s Customer Favorite of the Year. I have been blessed to meet and connect with fans and readers around the world. Despite that, most people have zero idea what LitRPG even is lol. I have been writing in the genre for years, and the entire time I have been explaining what it is, but I realized I never really took the time to formally write it down. So here goes.

LitRPG, or Literature Role Playing Game, is a new book genre that incorporates video games with classic SciFi/Fantasy. If you’re confused, you’re not the only one.

LitRPG novels follow 2 broad rules:

  1. A component of the story follows an “explicitly stated” form of progression.
    Put another way, in a classic fantasy story, the character might practice with a sword master. The author skips forward a month, and the main character is just “stronger.”
    In a LitRPG novel, that progress would instead be explicitly stated,
    Example: You have reached level 2 in Swordmanship. +4% to damage with Swords. +4% to attack speed with Swords

  2. The story involves a “game type” world that is integral to the story
    A popular trope of LitRPG is that the main character becomes stuck in a Virtual Reality world. Other stories have characters that live in a universe that operates by game principles, ie questing, leveling and finding amazing loot.

These two rules are broad for a reason. Just as there are many different types of games with many different types of rules, there even more potential LitRPG stories. Definitely more in fact, as a LitRPG novel is only bounded by the author’s imagination, rather than a computer’s processing power.

If you are still confused, again, you’re not fully alone, so don’t despair! The true definition of a LitRPG is a story that makes you feel like you are playing a video game. That finger tingling excitement, controller chucking frustration and hero awakening struggles come through in a well done LitRPG. Wether you’re a young game or an elderly retiree who misses old games of 1st gen DnD, LitRPG scratches that gaming itch for the millions of us that are both readers and gamers.
