What is RPG Gamelit or LitRPG?
Gamelit, the larger genre umbrella, is any fiction with game mechanics or that takes place in a game. RPG Gamelit also includes some sort of linear progression for characters that is significant to the plot of the story. These types of stories have been extremely popular in Russia and other countries where they are called Litrpg. They’re just now making an impact in the West.
RPG Gamelit is usually a funky mix of Fantasy and Sci Fi. The types of stories can vary but what most Gamelit novels have in common is a setting that most gamers can immediately relate to.
