Dead Runner (by Distinctive) - Coming to a forest near you very soon!




We would like to give you a sneak peek of our new app - Dead Runner
With Dead Runner we wanted to bring out an entirely unique experience combining chilling atmosphere with traditional gaming elements.

Immersed in a nightmare set in a haunted forest you are lost and running away from an unknown evil that is prowling through the woods. You cannot hide or stop for it will find you, catch you and take you..

Key features:
- Haunting visuals and intuitive controls – Be afraid, very afraid

- Choose between Distance and Points modes – How far can you go before the evil claims you?

- Tell the world who long you survived through Openfeint high score posting – Can you outlive your friends?

- Randomly generated levels deliver a high level of re-playability – The forest never looks the same so you never know what’s coming next.









Dead Runner will be launched in August 2010 at price of 0.59/$0.99.

We will be posting more on this game very soon so stay tuned!

That video and the game in general reminds me of the Blair Witch Project.

I can only hope you do more than just run around, having a camera recording you, and then die.

Sounds like a how far you can go game, with a pretty cool setting. I hope the game plays well.

Hi all,

Updated the start of this thread with the game-play trailer. Hopefully that will fill you in on what you do in the game.

We've tried to make it so that OF is not in your face and you can ignore it if you don't want to use it
