RuneScape is a popular massive multiplayer online role-playing game (or MMORPG for short) developed by Brothers Andrew and Paul Gower, played by almost 200 million people from around the world. The first public version of RuneScape was released on January 4, 2001 in beta form, and in December 2001, Jagex as a company was established to manage the game. As the game's popularity grew, the game engine was rewritten, and its beta was opened to paying players on December 1, 2003 under the name "RuneScape 2", which was renamed RuneScape upon its stable release on 29 March 2004.
The game takes place in a medieval world called Gielinor. It is divided by different kingdoms, regions, and cities. RuneScape does not follow a linear storyline; rather, players set their own goals and objectives. Players can choose to fight non-player character (NPC) monsters, complete quests, or increase their experience in the available skills. Players interact with each other through trading, chatting, or by participating in mini-games and activities. Some of them are competitive or combative in nature, while others require co-operative or collaborative play for success. There are 24 skills to level up. There are two ways to play: "Free To Play", which is pretty self-explanatory, and "Pay To Play", which lets you play the whole game with no limits.
There are 24 total skills to train like:
- Constitution (Hit Points)
Like World of Warcraft, gameplay of RuneScape isn't common, but that doesn't mean that it hasn't seen usage; in 2012, Spacman191 used it in the video "THE RUNESCAPING FILLER", and is planning to use it more often.
