Recently MMORPG.com is Adam Tingle had the chance to sit down with RuneScape lead designer Mark Ogilvie and PR Manager Adam Tuckwell to discuss RuneScape, wilderness and all. Check it out and then leave us a comment or two below. MMORPG: With recent conversions to F2P such as LoTRO and EQ2 Extended, how are you finding RuneScape is coping? Ogilvie: Lots of people will type free MMORPG in a search engine and there will always be multiple choices. Lots of players will make multiple accounts before they decide on a game, that is our audience. A lot of what we are doing is making the free game more accessible in terms of the sign-up process, less ticking of boxes, and finding a username can also be difficult. We have recently improved our registration process to suit this - even to the point of Facebook integration etc which is coming soon. These are all things that our competitors do straight away, so we see this and think ok let is do this because there a now more destinations for players to go to - however - there are more people with PCs and more people with an interest in our type of games. So I donot think we compromise our game play or our storytelling because of what other developers are doing. Basically we offer a different experience so our audience is roughly speaking the same as ever.
