It is with a great deal of sadness that we are announcing the decision to bid farewell to Chronicle: RuneScape Legends.

Both the client and the server tech have been faced with multiple technical issues that are preventing us from delivering an on-going quality game experience, and so Chronicle’s adventure will come to an end later this summer.

We’re not going to turn out the lights just yet – we will continue to run the Chronicle servers until 6th August. However, after that date the servers will be closed and it will no longer be possible to play the game.

On 8th May the option to purchase Platinum in-game or via the Chronicle website will be removed, as will the packs currently available through Steam. You’ll still be able to use any Platinum you already have on your account until the servers are shut down.

We want to sincerely thank those of you who have enjoyed Chronicle over the last two years – it wouldn’t have been the same without your dedication to the game that delivered a unique take on the CCG genre.

Hey is it possible to still have the single player mode somewhere?

^ This. I still play from time to time, and, just like Runescape:Idle adventures, its sad to see it go :(

Another one who wants to keep on playing single player mode. Hopefully this is doable?

Just great, would you like to give me a refund on the epic pack I purchased just 4 days ago, and which has never worked?... see my posts in this discussion thread and the Technical forum thread.

Hey Zaxwerks, sorry about this. You'll need to request a refund through Valve's system. In the meantime, I've credited your account with some Platinum and Gem Shards by way of apology.

Was there a decision to shutdown early? The Store page on Steam is gone.

We've withdrawn all items from sale, though the game remains accessible. Since there's nothing to purchase, and the game will be shutting down, Valve have removed the Store page.

If you've been having trouble playing Chronicle, let me know, you should still be able to log in.

Steam sorted out my refund, so thank you for your reply.

It's such a pity to see such a unique game dissapear. I presume the company doesn't want to spend the money re-developting or re-tooling that game, but if they did, have you thought about stripping out the online requirement and selling the game as a single player in the same vein that Duels of the Planeswalker's single player works, and then charging £10-20 for it? You could then release single player questing scenarios as DLC for say £5 each? You'd store the cards locally rather on the server, but that would't matter seeing if the game was single player, the player would just be cheating themselves if they cracked it. You could keep the daily rewards and the store, just have it as on offline feature inside the game, or just strip all that out and just award shards and a card pack for defeating every 5 foes for example so people could still craft missing cards. You could even replace the need for a central server for a peer-2-peer connection so friends could still play each other (although that would require more substantial programming)

Just some random ideas, which you've probably thought through already, but the game has such a unique mechanic, and offline CCGs are practically non-existant, I think you could really corner the market with something unique. It would be a pity to see such a good game assigned to the bin of forgotten history after so much work.

I liked Chronicle very much, it was fun and relaxing to play.

this game had such a potential man :(

Well, it refills me 35 euros for the steam that I spent less than 1 month ago or you take legal measures against you.

You're kidding, right? You have to be trolling.

Dude, as someone who has THREE lawyers in his family, you wouldn't have a leg to stand on. You could purchase content the DAY before they decide to discontinue the game and there's nothing you could do about it, because of a very simple clause that most sites/games have.

"You own this content for the LIFETIME OF THE GAME."

Period.

They don't owe you a god damn thing.

Im sad about this a card game. This best card game in the world & this game gonna go shutdown?

Is it an option to put out the source code if any fans want to add to the game?

Yeah! Consider open sourcing the game —releasing its source code and placing it under permissive licensing— so the community can keep on with it to the extent of continued interest in and appreciation for it.

I would love to one day play the game. I never have. I just saw a YT review of it and thought looked unique —though, it did make me think of Hitman GO a bit. I was looking forward to seeing what it was actually like.

Gifting the game —which wouldn't otherwise be a revenue source— to the community would be a preservation of an artifact/manifestation of the creative and intellectual capital and effort that's gone into it. Do it for posterity.
