Armies of Gielinor is a game developed by Jagex for their casual gaming website, Funorb, back in 2008. It is a turn-based strategy game where 2-8 players summon familiar faces from the world of RuneScape in order to fight for dominance of the map.

While watching the Idle Adventures segment of the Summer Summit, Mod Mark started talking about taking the world you love with you on the go, and that got me thinking - Armies of Gielinor could be easily converted to a mobile app! A few graphical updates, to make it look more like the modern world we know as RuneScape, and it could generate quite a bit of popularity and revenue for Jagex.

That's the idea, short and sweet. Please let me know what you think!

I would rather they team up with the "Total War " developers and make a Total war : Armies of Gielinor game . A real full scale tactical wargame .. Not just a re-hashed copy of the original .

A good idea, to be sure. However, that would require quite a bit more time and effort for a project like this. By simply polishing up the old game and re-releasing it on mobile, players would be satisfied with the game, and Jagex could make a quick buck.

My only worry would be the competition out there.. Even when AOG released , it didn't have much of a chance with FFT around . IMO .. They should go big or stay home ..

I kinda forgot Funorb existed.... but given the current level of support I don't think its favorable this will happen.

Not that I oppose, but i guess it would depend on how much of a real demand there is for it and if it would justify a port.....

I think they may be to busy with the current success chronicles is having and that needs an android port.


I support, but again not sure how likely it is to happen.

If playing it offered rewards for actual Runescape, I don't see why it wouldn't be as popular as Idle Adventures. I assume it'd need less effort making than Idle Adventures, though it probably needs a similar amount of advertising. The faction units are a little outdated though. Pyrelords aren't exactly Zamorak's strongest anymore. The legendary creators have been long gone from this world. When they return, they'll be surprised and angered of their creations' new sapience. Meanwhile, the world's most elite, summoned to be its guardians, have abandoned their purpose and intend to plunge the world into chaos. -- Bionicle or RS?

why stop at AoG? Why not go all out and re-release bot AoG and Arcanists on steam? I'm sure that if we all team up a start a petition they'll know how passionate we are about both games, and you all know Jagex, they actually DO care about what we think :P

I'm serious guys, let's start a petition to bring these two games to steam and revive some golden content.
