Take a trip through Funcom’s 25-year history

From 1994’s A Dinosaur’s Tale to 2018’s Mutant Year Zero, Funcom has blazed its own path through the video game genre as a developer and publisher of all sorts of titles. These, of course, include some of MMORPG fans’ most beloved games, such as Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, and The Secret World.

To celebrate the studio’s 25th anniversary, Funcom put together a quick video that takes players from the 16-bit console generation to the modern day, showing off its various logos and a montage of its games.

“Since those humble beginnings back in March of 1993, we’ve released over twenty-five games across a wide range of platforms,” Funcom said. “We’ve survived major shifts in the gaming industry and we’ve had to adapt to an ever-changing market. We’ve had our ups and we’ve had our downs. We’ve weathered many storms and we’ve earned our battle-scars.”

The journey starts below. What are you waiting for?

Speaking of Funcom nostalgia, I loved The Longest Journey back in the day. Not sure why I bought it, but I ended up enjoying it very much. It was major break from my usual strategy and dark RPG games. At times the story was hilariously funny, and at others it was quite poignant. I just wish I could get my enthusiasm back up enough to return to SWL. Oh, and yeah, needless to say I miss Ragnar Tornquist.

Ragnar is the best. You can find him over at Red Thread Games.

Congratulations to Funcom. For all their foibles, they’re still responsible for 2 of my all time favorites

I fully expected the first 5 minutes of the video to be delayed to technical issues and bugs.

I’m really glad to see them finally find their footing again in this last year. Hopefully they’ll start putting out more and maybe one day do anarchy online 2.

No one has had as many Logo changes as Funcom.

I had Impact Racing back then! Who knew it was them?

I am always quietly rooting for Funcom. I still really like many things about Age of Conan, I just wish more people played it.

Age of Conan is a great game. I too wish it had a bigger population.

I wish they hadn’t botched the “release” other wise it would have been on par with WoW as my most played mmo.
