Jagex Games Studio clicks with AdVenture Capitalist creators Hyper Hippo for RuneScape: Idle Adventures

Wednesday 17th February 2016 (15:00 CET) – Cambridge, UK – Hyper Hippo, the fun-time developers of the wildly popular capitalism simulator AdVenture Capitalist, and Jagex Games Studio, creators and custodians of RuneScape, the multi-award winning fantasy online adventure RPG celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, today announced a partnership that will see the creation of RuneScape: Idle Adventures. This multi-platform game will deliver a miniature RPG experience unlike any other, one that enables players to enjoy a RuneScape-themed adventure in just a few moments each day – anywhere, anytime.

Now in development at Hyper Hippo’s 25-strong studio in British Columbia, Canada, RuneScape: Idle Adventures is due to arrive this spring on Steam with mobile editions to follow. RuneScape: Idle Adventures marks the first time Jagex has worked with an external development partner to produce a new RuneScape-themed title.

In RuneScape: Idle Adventures players take on the role of a magnificent new RuneScape hero who sets out to nurture the world through noble efforts, including nothing less than fishing and growing cabbage. Players can look forward to the joys of RuneScape questing and monster fighting seen through a very different pair of eyes, dealing with beloved characters and mortal enemies alike. The game builds on the magic found in AdVenture Capitalist, where players with little time enjoy the many benefits of playing a game that plays itself.

The collaboration between Jagex Games Studio and Hyper Hippo was announced as RuneScape celebrates its 15th year of creating adventures for its millions of players. RuneScape: Idle Adventures joins Jagex’s epic strategy card game, Chronicle: RuneScape Legends currently in beta, as a further RuneScape-themed title that extends the world of RuneScape gaming.

RuneScape: Idle Adventures is heading to PC Steam this spring with mobile and tablet editions to follow. Gamers can follow the latest updates on the game by following @rsidleadv
