RuneScape is moving from being a simply advanced game and moving into the actual domain, Jagex and Steamforged have affirmed today. The two organizations have cooperated to make two games in view of RuneScape, with one being a prepackaged game and the other a tabletop RPG. The tabletop game will have one to five players take on journeys across Gielinor, with mechanics that permit character redesigns and use abilities to finish quersts. The tabletop RPG center book will give a base from which players will actually want to make their own characters and journeys set in Gielinor.
Phil Mansell, CEO of Jagex, said, “After more than 21 years of being exclusively available digitally, it’s extremely exciting to be collaborating with Steamforged to create and deliver new RuneScape role-playing adventures to tabletop gamers. By launching the board game via a crowdfunding platform, Steamforged is mirroring our approach of involving the RuneScape communities in taking the game to tabletop. Given Steamforged’s experience and expertise in transforming video game experiences to tabletop, I’m sure that both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape players will be excited to get their hands on the planned miniatures to create their own adventures with other ’Scapers and board gamers”.
Mat Hart, Creative Director and CCO of Steamforged, said, “Steamforged are honoured to be partnering with Jagex and together use our wealth of experience in adapting video games to bring one of the most popular online role-player games to tabletop. The rich RuneScape universe will translate beautifully to board and tabletop games, and using a crowdfunding platform and other dedicated community spaces will let us engage directly with fans of RuneScape and Old School RuneScape throughout development. Ready your rune armour, put on your party hat, and get ready to roll!”
Steamforged have insight with bringing computer games to the tabletop domain. The organization is behind the Monster Hunter tabletop game also. You can watch gameplay of the Monster Hunter board game here.
