What may have started out as "books by geeks for geeks," has already made first strides into the mainstream.
Many computer games, in particular, role-playing games (RGPs), have something that every book author is looking for: fans. These are fans who love to immerse themselves in a world that has its own rules, mechanics, language, adventures, and rewards. Gaming fans are passionate and constitute a huge market.
Unsurprisingly, it was only a matter of time that the movie and book industry got wind of the LitRPG movement. None other than Steven Spielberg brought Ernest Cline's LitRPG book, Ready Player One, to the big screen in 2018. The movie achieved a box office total of more than $137 million in the U.S. alone. Google search interest for LitRPG has more than doubled in two years; the number of book titles for it on Amazon has quadrupled during the period.
