I don't typically get too excited for games that are a pretty long ways out, but there are so many awesome things going on in this video for Dragon Runner that I just had to share it. Dragon Runner is yet another auto-runner game, but with a lot of unique things going for it. There's hand illustrated and animated visuals, giving it a unique look. Then there's the fact that you're running on the backs of giant sky dragons, which is pretty neat if you ask me. The game also switches to a behind-the-back skydiving game as you switch from one sky dragon to the next. Oh, and most important of all, the main character has an epic beard.
All this and more is explained in the following video, which does get a little behind-the-scenes-y at times but is still interesting, and it still shows a ton of gameplay from Dragon Runner.
The bummer part is that Dragon Runner is shooting for an early 2014 release, which is a long, long ways away in the world of iOS. If you happen to be going to Magfest this week, you can stop by and say hello to developer Cleaversoft and you'll be able to get your hands on the first demo version of Dragon Runner. Beyond that. it's going to be a long year ahead waiting for Dragon Runner, but we'll bring you any more news on its development in the meantime.
