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!

Hi guys! Just wondering if the DRM free version will continue to be updated? Contrary to others, I prefer my games 'non-Steam' as much as possible. Cheers on a great game by the way :)

Wondering the same thing here. It seems it will be the same sort of deal as with the humble bundles; they'll update just a bit later than the Steam version. What I think most people will do including me is use the Steam version until the updates get stable enough and then get the DRM free version from Desura.
Edit: the downloads are actually v1.0, not 0.99, but the news section hasn't been updated yet. Then again, the Steam version is 1.01.

Dont know about DRM free version, but it wasn't updated as the 1.01 is compatible with the 1.0 without being updated ;;)

To get your steam key just log into your account, go to Collection tab, press over the game and you'll see the the option called: Your Keys. That's it.

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?

I just bought the game here about 5 minutes ago and got my Steam key. I'm not sure how long that other person waited before they activated it (I did it within about 40 seconds of seeing the confirmation page) but even if you didn't, you can contact support here and at Steam; if you can prove your identity they'd probably realize it's a mistake. Just realized I'm late, so hope this helps.
