A science fiction story from the ancient world—as a long night falls across the Earth, a stranger arrives bearing the promise of new daylight, and the breaking of old covenants. But survival comes at a price, as our storyteller finds himself thrown headlong into the stranger's dreams, running across words of fire towards a dire portent of the future. Run is a cross-genre experiment in games and intertextuality, combining aspects of arcade, strategy and puzzle games with text vignettes—an attempt to produce a serious art game, inspired by classic weird fiction, which still remains both polished and engaging, and plays well as a game.
The full game, minus some options (fullscreen, auto-save, detail settings, etc.) is free to play as a demo from the game web site (listed in the profile). If you enjoy the demo, please consider purchasing the game. Your purchase on Desura also includes the game soundtrack, and helps support the developer to create more ambitious work in the future.
