Jagex Announce 8 Realms "Empire Building"


Runescape-creators Jagex have announced a new game project, 8 Realms, which is due for release on the 5th of May. This time it's a "social" strategy game. I'd like an anti-social strategy game, personally, but I guess that's all hardcore RTS games since year zero... ANYWAY, here's Jagex's finely-crafted encapsulation quote: “8 Realms has been developed from the ground up to appeal to players with a passion for strategy gaming but who have been left underwhelmed by the social games available today,” said Mark Gerhard, CEO at Jagex. “With 8 Realms we saw a massive opportunity to push the technological boundaries of HTML games. Jagex has traditionally been an innovator in browser gaming and we saw this as our chance to bring a fresh perspective to the social space and the empire-building genre.”

Intriguement! For a chance to get on the beta you can "Like" the project on Facebook. Mm.
