Old School RuneScape (OSRS) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed and published by Jagex. The game was first released on 22 February 2013. When OSRS launched it was originally an August 2007 build of RuneScape, but has since received engine improvements, new content, and quality of life updates largely decided by in-game polls. Despite having a smaller development team and a slower relative update schedule, OSRS has a larger player-base than RuneScape. A mobile version for Android and iOS was released in October 2018.
The input mechanics are mainly point-and-click. The player controls a single character and can interact with NPCs, objects, and entities in the game world by left-clicking, or selecting an option from the object's right-click menu, since many objects can offer more than one interaction option. OSRS, like RuneScape 3, makes profit through a membership subscription that gives free-to-play members access to the full "pay-to-play" content of the game.
OSRS offers an "Ironman" game mode wherein players are completely barred from economic interaction with other players, and they must be completely self-sufficient. Ironman mode players cannot take items that other players have dropped, sold to stores, or left unclaimed on the ground from kills.
