For more information about Jagex's publication of This Means Warp OSRS Gold, we reached out to Outlier Games' founders Paul Froggatt and Matt Rathbun, as well as Lead Product Manager for Jagex Robert Fox-Galassi for their thoughts on the new collaboration.
Much like many indie developers our beginnings in the games business was through tinkering with game ideas and programming over a long time before finally creating something that was playable!
I've had 10 years of work experience at Google before deciding to pivot to game development full time. Matt's job includes the creation of Hollywood computers on movie sets, and a brief stint in South Korean esports and mobile game development. We couldn't be more excited to share what we've created with this Means Warp.
A variety of video games have led to aspiring developers develop their own. However, it's rare to see the work of a different creator picked up by the same firm that made the original game.
That was not the case for Brendan Malcolm, the one-man team at Australian game developer Games By Malcs, whose idle RPG Melvor Idle is currently being released by Jagex which is the maker of RuneScape -- a game that was at the heart of Malcolm's motivation behind his own project.
Melvor Idle strips away the visuals and 3D environments of RuneScape and other similar MMOs and reduces it to a simple idle game that relies on menus that lets players control their inventory, skills and quests. Combat encounters are fought with a winning streak earns players XP as well as loot, which can be put into any level of skill tree or upgrade players want Cheap RS Gold, while doing repetitive activities like making or cutting wood can bring its own rewards.
