RuneScape airs ’15 Years of Adventure’ documentary

“This is the story of a world created in a kitchen. Of a community bonding as they kill chickens or fish for sharks. It’s a sneaky peek behind the scenes of an online world, of its highs and lows and an attempt to solve something of a mystery. How a video game can still be loved and relevant after 15 years.”

With these words, a fascinating look into RuneScape’s 15-year history begins in a brand-new documentary from Jagex. The studio notes that whether or not you’ve heard of the game, someone has, as RuneScape has garnered six Guinness world records and over 240 million accounts created.

If you have an hour and a half to spare, you could do a lot worse than to delve into the history and stories of this MMORPG. Check it out below!

I enjoyed watching this. Among other things, I think it’s interesting to hear the devs talk about their missteps– and see history repeating itself in other games that didn’t learn from their lessons. I love to see how the people behind the game are very passionate about it and how positive they are after 15 years of it!

I always wanted to get into Runescape, tried twice over the yrs & didn’t last more than a day both times. Dunno why it didn’t grab me.

Interesting, I just found out that Ultima Online was a source of inspiration for RuneScape’s founders
