Hi guys,
I would like to introduce you to Lethal Running !

city.gif


The game is available on Steam in Early Access.
In Lethal Running you are a participant of a deadly game show in a futuristic dystopian world.
You have to stand your ground against merciless bounty hunters, capture weapons and food, upgrade your body with stimulants, hack into systems, build your own tools and explore the Wasteland.

The game was inspired by "Running Man" with Schwarzenegger and the Hunger Games, among others.
Lethal Running is a true Indie game :cool:
It is in Early Access on Steam and still needs a lot of feedback on the way to full release.
Playable on Windows in English and German

Thanks & keep running.

It's real time.
The character is upgraded by implanting Stims. There are 17 of it, most further divided into several levels.
8 character traits like hunger and wounds are to be watched. Life is impacted by all of these together.
There are guns and melee weapons, pyrotech, hypnotization and cloaking. You can run, walk and dodge. Running and dodging is limited by fatique.
Armor is based on Armor Hubs that don't protect by themselves, but can be extended bv installing Mods against bullets, heat, radiation, etc.
Armor needs energy as well as lamps, laser guns or scanners.
There are various ways to get to required stuff like food, water, energy and ammo, various techniques to open doors and to kill enemies.
Day and night cycles, rain, heat, coldness and radiation.
We have cooking, herbs and poisened water. Fat rats.
Likes and Dislikes.
Hacking mini game.
Crafting.

There were other games as inspiration, but Lethal Running has become a totally different game, so, no, no comparisions.

All Zombie free. :)

I don't play roguelites much but the art is pretty good and Running Man is a great source of inspiration for a game like this. Is a native Linux version possible?

It looks interesting enough to give a try. That's more than can be said for a ton of games, even on here. Can I get a steam key, bratan? If it keeps me up even a few hours after bed I'll do a review on it.

Sorry, answers for overlooked questions:
-> It's not deterministic
-> While the game was and is partly developed on Linux, there is no official public Linux version because demand and market are too small to justify the costs.

Terrible colour scheme used for the interface and more. Why all this pink? But this is a minor complaint. Real-time is the big one for me. I had my share of RT roguelites, some were ok but enough is enough. I wish the author good luck but i won't bite (or buy) it.

No offence but what are you even doing in this thread JarlFrank?. You don't like roguelikes and vast majoriy of roguelites happen to have 2 traits in common with RLs: perma death and procedural generation. What were you expecting?

I loved The Running Man novella by Stephen King as a kid. That trailer looks dope as hell too. I've added this to my wish list. Hope you finish it, if you do I'll most likely buy it.

Demo appears to be searchable but it links back to regular page thus not allowing to try it out. Is it some festival remnant ?

Yes, there used to be a demo for a Steam Next Game Festival or whatever it is named. It's no longer available.
