The studio behind RuneScape to discuss its own evolution

MMO specialists Jagex will be attending the upcoming GameCity festival in Nottingham, offing insight into how the company formed and progressed to become one of the shining stars in the UK tech sector.

The Cambridge-based developer was recently named as one of Britain’s fastest-growing tech companies in the UK, hitting 22nd place in The Sunday Times’ league table of 100 growing tech companies.

Christoph Vietzke, head of development on MMO RuneScape, hopes that his shared experience can be of great help to other developers.

“As a company that concentrates on making great games rather than advertising campaigns, Jagex stands as example that there is room in the games industry for independent developers,” he said.

“I hope that some of our experiences can help other independent developers to be successful and that’s why I happily accepted the invitation to this great event.”

GameCity takes place from October 27 to October 31.
