Maintained playing RuneScape Classic



  • While the transfer to mobile could open RuneScape gold to a new generation of players, Jagex is targeting its current user base and those players who have since churned out the game.Speaking into PocketGamer.biz, Jagex Senior Product Director Neil McClarty says though its user base is enthusiastic and highly invested in the game, many players are getting old. With that, he explains, comes time stresses on sport time because of other commitments like work and family.

    Hence that the studio set about searching for ways to let users play the game on the move, and cellular was the ideal match. "For us it was actually born out of this, and therefore the cross-platform element was crucial," states McClarty. "We did not want this to be a game that is new since it's about looking after our present players, allowing them to have the ability to play the sport that they're playing, with the characters they've spent .

    "The secondary element is that we expect that there'll possibly be some ex-players who have left because they have not had time to play on PC, and perhaps today if it's available to play mobile, they will have 10 minutes while they are on the bus to work."

    McClarty states Jagex has been laying the bases for RuneScape on cellular for a long time, with work on the tech side over the previous two years also simplifies the brand new mobile versions and making them viable choices.McClarty claims that RuneScape provides near enough the exact same experience as its PC counterpart. And, luckily because of past decisions in the very conception of RuneScape, the controller scheme should not feel too alien to PC players.

    "I would really like to believe [Jagex founders] Andrew and Paul Gower could cheap OSRS gold see in the future and saw that at 16 years' time mobile are what it is today and that they picked point and click mechanic because it could lend itself so well to telephones," says McClarty. "Happily those two things have aligned and really the conventional point and click that we've needed on PC does immediately lend itself to point and click with your finger, which is great.
