Runescape Idle Adventures is shutting down on May 15

Remember Runescape: Idle Adventures? Probably not, which is probably a good part of the reason why the game is rather quietly shuttering its doors on May 15th. The farewell letter to the community explains that while the community for the game was solid, people weren’t sticking around to justify the cost of developing new content, which meant the title fell into that perilous trap where there’s no new content, so people leave, so there’s no reason to develop more, etc.

The spinoff launched into early access back in September of last year with microtransactions and a free-to-play business model. Multiplatform development was planned but never materialized. Our apologies to the players who are losing a game they enjoyed and the developers forced to pull the curtains on the project.

Never played it but they took peoples money and shut it down? Publisher should be banned for life on steam. We can start fixing these DRM games asap.

Steam is like the biggest DRM out there.

Not the first RuneScape spin-off they’ve closed.

Although for some reason FunOrb is still online despite not having any updates in years.

Thank goodness the idle clicker fad was as quick to leave as it was to enter.

Check Kongregate. It’s still almost all idle games.

People just leave them on in the background and walk away. Doesn’t mean anything imho.

I know but they keep getting made. Happily it does seem the number of XXXXXX IDLE titles is slowly fading but its still a ton.

I played this for a little bit but it just never held my interest for long. The character and the story was engaging but not enough to stick around and spend money.

Still, sorry to see it go.
