One thing that sets Dream Runner apart is the fact that there is progression in the runner and a story that unfolds as you progress and complete objectives. There are different worlds to unlock and each world brings new obstacles, new visuals and adds nuances to the gameplay. There is something in here that will appeal to a wide range of gamers- whether they be fans of endless runners, appreciate great art and compelling stories or just like playing a solid all-round, fun game.

Looks beautiful! I'm hooked with the graphics alone. Any gameplay footage available?
Also, I like the idea of character progression here. Definitely looking forward to this.

I was on the edge of liking this, because those were just concept shots(right?), but those in-game screenshots sold me, can't wait

thank you all for your kind replies. It's really encouraging!

The shop will NOT be intrusive at all - no blocks, nothing - you can play the entire game without ever needing anything from the shop. It will help you get to some pretty cool power ups sooner though - but we want to make sure the gameplay experience is great.

It will be an endless runner - so the game-time is practically infinite. But we wanted to add real progression to this genre - so you can unlock another world and progress the story after completing specific objectives in the first world.

There are power-ups, objectives, challenges and a whole lot more to keep the game play fresh.

The obstacles are generated progressively and there is a ramp up to the difficulty which also visually changes the environment as you keep playing. We will be posting some screens of the second world soon.

As always please don't forget to sign up for the BETA

Those screens look great! Thanks for posting them. I don't have much time for beta testing, so I will hold off until it is ready for some press coverage. I'm sure there are plenty of people in the Beta Tester Alliance who would love to test though.
