Runescape is a game developed and published by Jagex and released in January 2001. It belongs to the fantasy MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role-playing games) segment. The basic structure of the game was originally a browser-based game on the Java platform, later in 2016; it is mostly replaced by a standalone C++ coded client. The first version of this game was released in January 2001. It was a beta version and the copyright of the Jagex was later done that year. Gradually as the popularity of the game increased, the game engine was rewritten and released as Runescape2. Old school Runescape is a different version. It is the older version of the game from 2007 and was released in February 2013. It is maintained side by side with the original client.
