SwiftKit News

Website + SwiftKit MS + Bluelight Dev

They say good things come in three, and in this case they would be correct. Over the past month or two we've been pretty quiet, well there's a reason for that and it will be explained in this news post. The news post will be split up into the three announcements, so let's get started with SwiftKit MS.

SwiftKit MS
SwiftKit MS stands for SwiftKit MechScape, the title should be somewhat self-explanatory. The SwiftKit Team will be developing a ToolKit for Jagex's new upcoming MMORPG, MechScape. The current SwiftKit that you know will be renamed to SwiftKit RS. While SwiftKit RS and SwiftKit MS will be two completely separate applications, they will still share some things such as the SwiftKit Launcher and your SwiftKit profile.

As it's still very early stages, we don't have much more information. However you can keep up to date and participate in the development by heading over to the SwiftKit MS forums. Also keep an eye on the SwiftKit website which now has a SwiftKit MS section.

New Website
The SwiftKit Website has finally received a much needed face lift. The old website was beginning to get bloated and was rather slow loading. The new site is a huge improvement over the old one in regards to loading times and presentation.

So check it out and let us know what you think.

Bluelight Dev
With the recent desires to start other projects the SwiftKit team have setup a parent name for all products or services that we release. So what this basically means is we can develop other products and services all under the one parent name, Bluelight Dev.

We encourage you to check out the website and forums. If you're interested in working on a project with us then definitely sign up to the forums and have a look.

I think that you cant judge qa game by the way it looks.. look at rs for example may not be the most updated graphics or the best skills but people play it.... just like mechscape that people will play because it talks to them.... if you dont like to play mechscpae then 2 bad, let the people that want to play it play it. stop messign with them and stop bchin if u dont like it thats my coment.

Researching without proper / reliable / mentionable source? Great job!

Th SK -window has started to bounce around again. ._.

Idot3442 @ 05 2009 01:18 pm

I read that MechScape will be aimed more at the adolesence rather than teenagers. I've also seen soem concept drawings and it looks like there will be things like aircraft to fly in and different planets to go to. I dont know if this is all true but thats what I've found in my research about it.

Just reserve like 5 minutes to browse through options and other areas. SK gives good picture out of itself pretty easily.

BTW, thanks for makin SK's window to stay in same place again.

Scoop2552 @ 01 2009 06:26 pm

SwiftKit is the best thing for irc and runescape help! It is so helpful for everything! One suggestion would be to teach people how to do use IRC(first time people)


#97
donkno @ 31 2009 08:04 pm

im new to swiftkit...all i kno is tht its very helpful to me for many ways, why not add a sum it up part of swift kit. just sum up evrything uve done and r planning to do. it'd help me a lot


#96
devils @ 31 2009 06:14 pm

well this does look intresting but im expecting high expections since runescape is a pretty good game so if there deciding to make another game i think they got a good game planned


#95
Saddest Soul @ 31 2009 03:04 pm

Looks like it should be very entertaining. It will be so refreshing to step out of medeival times for a change.


#94
Caro @ 31 2009 10:36 am

Thats sounds awsome, lol. Its actully what i hoped u guys wanted to make.. Can't wait :P


#93
Dust-D3mon @ 30 2009 01:43 am

I'm looking forward to Mechscape. Not solely on the gameplay, but how the Runescape community will respond to it.

Having 2 games isn't gonna suddenly ruin the whole company. Believe it or not, people ARE paying to play games on FunOrb. The same will probably go for MS.


#92
Conor @ 26 2009 08:39 am

"if they make it so over ppl can use there runescape acconts on it ppl will play it over wise hi lvls on rs won't want to thro all that work to level on this new game so it will be pla**** by low levels only it's a wast of jargex's money and if it does sucseed i recorn it will get less players on runescape so jargex will be halfing the ppl who play runescape and putting half on ms and jargex will most probbley get rid of runescape becase there not making money out of it then all the hi lvls years and monthes of playing rs and training gone!!! "

I lol'ed so hard at this. Its a new game. Deal with it. Rs will still be there, but you can play both if you want to.

ZzZzZ @ 25 2009 12:45 am

omg when will swiftkit have a new update lol =P i like updates


#90
Daran two @ 22 2009 05:50 am

Runescape will still be updated when mechscape is released.
Runescape cl****ic doesnt update anymore, because they kinda updated runescape cl****ic.
Mechscape is like funorb, it wouldnt stop Runescape, because it got their own development team and stuff


#89
doomsday1542 @ 22 2009 02:05 am

they wont get rid of runescape you idiot, they just put all the time and money into runescape HD
and no matter what people will always play runescape so it's not going anywhere. so think next time before you say something stupid =]


#88
guitarlord66 @ 21 2009 06:11 am

No, Mechscape Is an mmo. hence, the english guy at that expo/convention thing: "Yes, we are making an mmo, nothing like runescape, which should be in Q1 of 2009"


#87
ice @ 21 2009 02:07 am

Well guess what MECHSCAPE is a strategy game like Startcraft i think and is completely different to runescape. I don't think you kids will like it =P


#86
vw killer Vw @ 20 2009 09:39 pm

lol I wonder what "mechscape" is like :P


#85
millionbucks @ 20 2009 04:02 pm

if mechscape will have light sabers n crap, thad be so sick lol


#84
edward @ 20 2009 12:04 pm

wow i didnt know jagex would make a new game, well that greats my noodle. LOL


#82
flyyf @ 17 2009 10:52 am

I dont think that evrybody should give up on ms before it is even released, and anyone who shuns the idea of it should give it a chance.


#81
UM wow? @ 14 2009 10:17 am

wow why does jagex waste money on making this why dont they just improve runescape like the freakin drops in pvp! but anyway yea they are ****s?


#80
i rjh i @ 13 2009 09:09 pm

link @ 09 2009 11:22 pm

Lol, you people are funny, you\'re predicting things about a game which, i\'m going to assume, you\'ve not even seen the gameplay of.. Stop your whinging, to put it nicely. If you don\'t think it\'ll be good, don\'t play it.


#76
someone   @ 07 2009 05:41 pm

I'm not even looking foward to MechScape. It seems like just annother game JaGeX will make, then ruin. After Funorb, which in my opinion was a sucess, they should have just stopped.


#75
Sake @ 06 2009 11:44 pm

LOL if you've heard of BattleOn or DragonFable, you know of their game of an epic failure, AKA mechquest, idk if JaGEx will follow the path they did, but I certainly hope not.

And if you liked Battleon, DragonFable, or MechQuest, then you probably know that AdventureQuest has developed a new game called AdventureQuestWorlds, it's multi-player, just in case you didn't know...


#74
legaking100 @ 02 2009 03:35 pm

sounds like yet ANOTHER failure (first being funorb)this is jagex trying to prove that they are the best in everything


#73
Magerpk2004 @ 02 2009 03:12 am

Haha MS sounds like the health disorder. just another addiction for the hardcore runescape drones


#72
meh.. @ 01 2009 06:20 pm

@wabzuu: how would you know if it sucks or not? it's not even out yet dumb ****...


#71
wabzuu @ 01 2009 06:06 am

trust me, MS Sucks... its all about robots


#70
Idler @ 28 2009 04:10 am

The Swiftkit doens't stay in the same place, when I'm restarting it, no matter how many times I adjust it. It worked perfectly before this new version, but the issue renewed with the new version.

Own Client for something like Mechscape? Funorb was a failure, and you're still awaiting for a MeChScApE? You're increasing the meaningless hyping for a new bluff on behalf on your production staff? Oh dear.


#69
ZzZzZ @ 27 2009 12:07 am

What do you all think mechscape will be like??


#68
