    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.


    Update 02/17/12 : new gameplay footage from our current build

    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 :D

    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.
     
  9. Looks amazing! I look forward to the release.

    thanks everyone for the replies- we will be posting more stuff soon.

    As far as the BETA invites go - we want to get as many people as we can for it - so far it looks like we should be able to accomodate everyone. However, if we have a lot more signups than we need- we will probably go with a first-come first-serve basis. So please do sign up for the BETA as soon as you can.

    Alert: feel free to ignore me -_-'
    Correct grammar: 'my girlfriend and I'
    Signed up some time ago, but didn't know what I was getting into other than it's a beautiful and story driven runner with endless mode(?).

    What unlockables are there? That shop button is tantalizing me to touch my monitor :D.

    Just a minor quibble: the stylish font for the game title and buttons is beyond loveable. It would be nice to see all letters use the same font (Score and the in game objective look unexciting in comparison). Which font is it? If it's self developed, will you be releasing it for PC users? :p
