The publishing department of Runescape developer Jagex has obtained a promising independent release for its Jagex Partners label, making Melvor Idle no longer independent. Idle games are similar to games such as Clicker Heroes or Idle Champions of the Forgotten Champions, which were released on Steam last year and are very proud to be influenced by Jagex’s flagship Runescape.
Melvor Idle is a detailed multi-track idle game that aims to reimagine “the core components of the RuneScape franchise in a way that can be enjoyed at will,” the publisher said. This is a very feature-rich idle game, there are many things to make and progress, and emphasize the need to restart the game’s zero reputation mechanism.
Jagex apparently became aware of the project in early 2020, and after the official launch of Steam in October of that year, many employees of the publisher were fans of it.
As you can imagine, the developers are happy to connect with the creator of one of their favorite games. “Being able to work directly with Jagex in this regard is a dream come true,” said Brendan Malcolm, an independent developer at Melvor Idle studio Games by Malcs.
Malcolm posts Long question and answer To the game’s Reddit community, it is clear that he will maintain complete creative control, and the game’s single-purchase monetization model will not change. He said that Jagex “does not want” to change anything about Melvor Idle. The publishing agreement will enable Jagex to assume the marketing, localization, technical support and quality assurance of Melvor Idle.
