What happens when you combine Minecraft with RuneScape? You get a boxy version of the classic MMORPG, or more specifically, you get Minescape, a passion project of Günther “scipio3000” Jungbluth since 2012 that’s currently on its third season of updates.
Minescape boasts 24 skills, bosses to fight, dungeons to plumb, and plenty of items to find or craft, all on a lovingly recreated map of the world of Gielinor with a couple of custom additions.
The server first opened in 2013 and ran until 2015, where there was a year-long break. After that, it returned in 2016, and then was revamped in 2019, bringing us to the current version of the server. Since then, there have been a number of seasonal updates and patches, with the most recent bringing the Halloween season as well as a subscription service (which hopefully won’t run afoul of Jagex’s lawyers).
More details can be found on the game’s website including an FAQ, while a trailer showcasing the server is below.
