Mark Ogilvie

Design Director, Jagex

Mark is design director for the RuneScape franchise and started working for Jagex in 2003, when there was only a handful of staff. He is the vision holder for RuneScape and directs all the game development projects from concept to launch.

Far from happy atop a directorial ivory tower, Mark likes to get involved with all aspects of Jagex’s development cycle and can often be found in the audio booth or working with testers on perfecting gameplay. Marks background has spanned many parts of the games market, working for TSR (Dungeons and Dragons) and even running his own medieval theme tavern and corporate entertainment business. Marks chat channel “W00ters” remains one of the most popular social destinations in RuneScape.
