Run is a game about time and necessity, a genre-defying experiment, and a science fiction story from the ancient world:
On the eve of dire calamity, in an era when humanity still wrestles with the brutal dictates of uncaring gods, a stranger arrives offering an escape from strife, freedom from the shackles of myth and the salvation of a new, bright future. What ensues is a bold experiment fusing prose poetry with a mashup of classic and modern games, and a meditation on impermanence, identity and media.
- A literary game with a novel structure: a series of interlinking segments twisting text into action into strategy.
- A mashup of old and new combining painterly art with day-glo vintage arcade pixels, chip music with string quartets.
- A true single-author work with original writing, art and score.
Run is available from Desura for $3.99 USD. Your Desura purchase includes access to the game's original soundtrack in high quality MP3 320 format.
You can also play Run in its entirety for free in your browser. The browser version of Run is missing only convenience features of the download, such as recording your progress and playing in fullscreen modes. If you enjoy the game, please consider purchasing it from Desura; purchases help fund further development.
