Solid player since 99' ... Time to give back!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone been playing since the original version in 99'.

 

Today the game is kinda overwhelming... Wanting to try something new to pass time!!

 

I'm thinking about doing weekly giveaways! Nothing huge just some free RuneScape items and gold...

 

Pretty much in am nutshell I'm thinking of creating a FB page amd do live steaming once a week and have games like a quiz show or... "We're am I" were I will live stream and give hints to my location and the first person to find me wins a prize!

 

Would be curious if people would be interested! Let me know and I'll get a page set up!

 

Comment below if interested!

Sounds like a lot of fun, I'm sure streaming on Twitch would get some viewers.

 

Also moved to Events where this is better suited. :)

I'm quite impressed you were playing the "original" game in 99 when it didn't launch until 01...

Well, the game used to be a MUD thing, not really sure about early access back then. But the game did exist in 1999.

DeviousMUD, was never properly publicly released. There was a 1998 version that was never available, which only Andrew got to play, and a 1999 version that had a 1 week beta online. There are only about 20 people who ever played DeviousMUD and they are mostly friends/family of the Gowers from the time. After that beta DeviousMUD basically went dark until it re-appeared and was properly launched as Runescape in 2001.

 

Also of an interesting side note on early years timelines Jagex website claims the company was founded in Dec 2001, but Company House records indicate the company was incorporated as Meaujo (492) Limited in early 2000, before being renamed to Jagex Limited in mid-2000.

Yet to add even more confusion to matter Jagex.com existed in 1999 referring to itself as a small software company and was owned by the Gowers and is where many of the pre-Runescape java games they made appeared.

 

So basically the tl;dr of it all to do with why the copyrights mention 1999 is that Jagex came into existence in the public domain in 1999 with some java games and a brief DeviousMUD beta, but Runescape itself didn't kick off until 2001.
