Andrew is busy with a new project nowadays and he doesn't want that project to become as company like as Jagex is nowadays.

This picture shows +- how much I liked RuneScape:

The more Gower the more I like it.

Fen Research's apparent employment of only three people probably reflects its recent creation, so it seems unlikely that the company will continue to remain as small as it is currently. While it will probably expand, Andrew Gower's wish to avoid "big company politics," his aim of "taking the best ideas from everyone rather than dictating from the top," and the promise of working "as part of a small elite development team," show a definite wish to remain relatively small. With the associated benefits of a more flexible working environment and direct communication to leaders, this could be a significant departure from Jagex.


I have about the same opinion as Andrew Gower has.

Perhaps he no longer agrees with the current stance Jagex has taken and prefers not having his name attached to the product any longer.

The fact that Andrew was at RuneFest pretty much debunks that theory. It's likely that Andrew's looking for new projects which requires both his time and monetary investment. He has no obligation to keep his money at Jagex, and we really should lay off him.

If he would care enough, he would post here to inform us, what's the real deal. That's what he used to do back in first scapeboards, I thought. Those times are long gone - probably it's not our business, afterall. Probably there is nothing fishy or odd behind Andrew's getting off Runescape development totally.

They changed that with some game they made which wasn't Java based. World of Legends or something like that.

No, they didn't make World of Legends - just published it. Hence the name change.

He seemed very nervous in a video that Runezone shortly asked him questions. He speaks weird and looks weird. But i wish him the best because he looks like a honest person.

Will be interesting what Fen Research will make.

I don't see the big deal here?

The credit list, for a long time, has only shown the CURRENT team. Many big name jmods who went on to bigger and better things vanish from the list.


^This.

I see we are in another one of Pal's hate threads again and what's with the Gower trolling? If it wasn't for him we wouldn't have this game.

Ooh a post about me. :)

You could have used more up to date (and less awful :) pictures, those are 10 years old!

I'm not too bothered about not being on the credits list. I was never big on the whole fame thing, and lots of people know what I have contributed anyway.

(and yes my chin and neck are as one, bah!)

Look forward to following Fen Research though ever since I started following Jagex in 2000. Maybe he'll be cool and upload The Bottomless Pit, lol.

Ooh, I remember that one. It had cheat-codes for that cute little 2D-sidescroller-shooter game if I recall :P

heh, I just noticed this at the bottom of tip.it - shows you how the times have changed...better change that to Jagex now.. :/
RuneScape ® is a trademark of Jagex © 2000-2011 Andrew Gower

(Also there...designed for IE 6+, Mozilla 1.0+, Netscape Navigator 5+, Opera 4+..lol Netscape...wonder whatever happened to that browser?)

Heh, I'm all for being rebellious and leaving Andrew's name there. Copyright or not, RS wouldn't be here without him. Just my personal opinion, not representing Tip.It's view here.

We kept the Netscape Navigator bit in as a bit of an easter egg. I'm pretty sure some of the newer more script-intensive stuff doesn't work on Netscape at all - lord knows I never tested anything for it, and I've been on the crew for a while now :P

There's an up to date photo on our RuneFest page I believe.

EDIT: Never mind, looks like we got one of Paul backstage but Andrew wasn't there.

When someone looks at your pic and compares you to Sid the Sloth; you post an updated pic.
