Hyper Hippo - the team behind AdVenture Capitalist - as well as RuneScape developers Jagex have announced a collaboration that sees the pair begin work on RuneScape: Idle Adventures. Billed as a “miniature RPG experience”, Idle Adventures will let players enjoy a RuneScape-themed game “in just a few moments each day”.

Due for a spring release on Steam,Runescape 2007 Gold, Idle Adventures will see elements of Hyper Hippo’s popular AdVenture Capitalist sewn into the familiar RuneScape world -- most notably its pick-up-and-play style.

Incedently, RuneScape: Idle Adventures marks the first time Jagex has worked with an external developer to make a RuneScape game.

“In RuneScape: Nonproductive Adventures players take on the role of a magnificent new RuneScape hero who sets out to nurture the world through noble efforts, including nothing less than fishing and growing cabbage, ” reads the game’s press release. “Players can look forward to the joys of RuneScape questing and monster fighting seen through a very different pair of eyes, dealing with beloved characters and also mortal enemies alike. ”

While not in any way opposed to the idea of making games catered to those with less time on their hands, I’m not sure how this model will translate to an RPG. Part of the deal with role-playing games, as far as I see it, is that you’re expected to spend hours at a time delving into their worlds along with characters and plotlines.

Then again, AdVenture Capitalist has shifted over 10 million copies to date, Buy Runescape 2007 Gold,so what do I know? It’ll be interesting to see how this one pans out in any event.

“The emerging idle genre is starting to make a real impact, with novel gameplay experiences propelling idle games into the Steam in addition to mobile top charts, ” says Phil Mansell, VP of RuneScape. “We think there are lots more innovative experiences to come, especially when blending narrative plus RPG aspects along with idle gameplay. ”
