THE GREATEST ADVENTURE EVER PLAYED IN 90 SECONDS A DAY IS NOW AVAILABLE ON STEAM EARLY ACCESS
Friday, 2nd September 2016, Cambridge, UK – Presenting a miniature RPG experience like no other, Jagex (RuneScape) and Hyper Hippo (AdVenture Capitalist) today announced that RuneScape: Idle Adventures is now available on Steam Early Access.
Delivering the greatest story ever played in 90 seconds a day – in fact, why not complete a quest while watching the Early Access trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nTKOxr_7Fw – Idle Adventures is an extremely time-friendly RPG for all, whether they’re idle or adventurous gamers. As the first ‘idle’ game to deliver a tremendous sense of adventure, it thrusts players into an epic narrative with just a minute or two’s play.
Developed with Hyper Hippo’s trademark charm, players create and take on the role of a curious, blue-skinned immortal of mysterious origins, who explores the iconic world of RuneScape in a brand new adventure. Players will discover the power of a new Elder Artefact as they battle monsters, challenge the gods, and grow cabbages for local farmers – all possible while waiting for other games to install, movies to stream, or cooking those cabbages. Progress is made even when Idle Adventures isn’t being played, so even the toughest quest can be completed with time.
“RuneScape: Idle Adventures pushes the boundaries of what is expected of an idle title. It’s an idle game with a grand story, one that embraces a lore-rich world to deliver the perfect bite-sized morsel of adventuring, whenever you have a little bit of time to kill,” said Cody Vigue, game designer, Hyper Hippo. “We’ve already received really great feedback from players during the closed beta period, and we’ll continue finessing the game during the Early Access period ahead of a full, multiplatform launch later in the year.”
“The idle genre is the perfect fit for RuneScape’s legendary fantasy tale – our humour, world-ending monsters, lovable characters, and huge medieval landscape has been captured perfectly in this cracking title,” said Mark Ogilvie, design director, RuneScape. “In fact, the true spirit of RuneScape has guided us throughout development – collaborating with our community throughout the beta and adopting our more laid-back approach to adventure. Most excitingly though, it’s allowed us to tell new stories through a new pair of eyes, and deliver a game that hits the mark for any idle, RPG or MMO fan.”
RuneScape: Idle Adventures is now available on Steam Early Access (http://bit.ly/rsidleadv) and is set for a full launch on PC and mobile platforms later in 2016.
