In December of 2005, we were blessed with the gift of RunMan’s Monster Fracas, a simple, charming, and hugely addictive indie game. Now the followup game, RunMan: Race Around the World, has been dated for release! It’s coming October 1st, and a brand new trailer shows off just exactly what we have to look forward to.
It looks as if Around the World will expand greatly on what the first game had to offer. It’s going to be a huge game in comparison, with over 35 levels to traverse, medals to collect, and characters to unlock. There’s still some running from giant green monsters involved, but there’s also lots of other sorts of running, jumping, flying and spinning for RunMan to do without being chased by giant green monsters! The game will also feature a soundtrack comprised completely of public domain jazz, blues, and folk music. Creators Tom Sennett and Matt Thorson really are two men after my own heart.
If you haven’t played the first game, don’t wait! Monster Fracas is the perfect way to spend a few minutes, and it’ll get you totally pumped for RunMan’s upcoming adventures!
