Tactical Shooter

Average Rating


Ratings closed


Pick up your rifle and join the Green or Grey army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box! RUNNING WITH RIFLES is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds.

In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!

thanks for the updates.

I <- have an idea maybe interessting for you.

What about using the nice engine for a JAGGED Alliance Game?

All the others try to make a new Jagged Alliance have sucking game engines.

Here you have an engine which give all the Abilities which were uniqe for JA and all in RT.
I see all which is needed for a real JA sequal. We only need more colors on the Maps, a turnbased change mode for the "loosers", some dialogs and NPCs, the option to zoom in out and scroll the screen.

This engine even allows airplanes, maybe add choppers and para-gliders and voila (i hate my bad english and france, but hey ...) we have a new JA no one thought it would ever be able to be rebuild ....

Bad idea?

So do I get a steam key if I buy it here or not? This shop page tells me that I get one but there was a comment saying that this isn't the case anymore.

If so, why is this page lying to me?

It is possible savegames become broken when new content is added in updates. Most of the time the savedata can be manually fixed with fairly simple steps if we've overlooked an automatic migration step with some content although we try to be thorough with it.

Usually we urge people to send their broken savegames for inspection at support@modulaatio.com, but not sure if yours would be processed given your rude tone.

No that way:
You can also DELETE the savegame before installing updates or contents.
As if it hurts anyone losing a savegame or having a broken game...
Though the game is that good, it is not so, that it gives many option for many "savegameS"

And my rude tone is the best advice from an enduser point of view, i am an IT-Supporter ....

You want a better tone, make a better support ...

Still awsome game :P

We never delete any savegames as our very best intention is to keep things compatible every update, has been for more than 3 years now. We do mistakes with these things sometimes, sure, we're mere human.

i've got the solution:
Deleting the whole save-file-Dir under C:\user account.
Else even new save-games make the above-error.
