RuneScape convention sells out, fans post 324-page history of the game

If you ever thought that RuneScape was a piddly title beneath your notice, then here’s a wake-up call for you today. The game’s upcoming October 3rd convention in London, RuneFest, has completely sold out since ticket sales began in mid-July. “The demand for tickets to RuneFest 2015 has been astounding, and we’ve sold out in record time — bonds and money sales alike,” Jagex posted.

Fortunately, there will be a way to attend digitally, as the convention will be livestreamed on Twitch. RuneFest will feature reveals and panels for the hybrid free-to-play MMO.

Meanwhile, a passionate team of players have been working on the RuneScape History Project to catalogue the entire backstory of the game’s development and events. As a result, the team released a 324-page online book this past week detailing the past decade-and-half of RuneScape’s history. If only all MMOs had such devoted fans.

naifean I feel like that is a very extreme stereotype you could apply to *any* gaming convention.

Yikes. Whichever building is hosting this should expect to smell like Cool Ranch Doritos and Mountain Dew for a good 2-3 months after the event.

Weird to think that it’s been like 13 years or so since I first played Runescape.

I’ve looked into it expecting a lore collection and realized … it is just game development/features/updates history.
Nuts. o.O

RuneScape was my first MMO back in 2005, and I played it for longer than any game I’ve played since. I miss games where combat was downplayed in favor of a wide variety of skills. I actually made friends in that game–friends that were more than just some random people to grab if I needed more for a group. That never happens to me in modern MMOs. I’m not a big fan of some of the more recent changes (strangely, it’s MMO I have the fondest memories of and the only one I haven’t revisited because it’s too different), but all the same I’m glad to see that the community is still alive.

I’m interested to see what’s in the history (I’ll probably do a lot of skimming to be honest; 324 pages is a lot). Thanks for the nostalgia.
