Runers, a new top-down rogue-like shooter in development by LGK Games, is now on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight (Funds raised from Kickstarter will be used to help fund the artist, therefore you may notice that some art assets are just simply placeholders until Runers can move over to his artwork). In Runers, there are 285 unique spells to use in a load out of 4 different spells at a time. There are a total of 13 unique races, each with a different passive ability, and 12 different classes, each with 3 subclasses offering different versions of a class ability. Runers then has you enter a dungeon featuring 10 floors as you explore randomly generated rooms and floors while fighting enemies.
Each enemy beaten will have a chance to drop runes. You can combine one, two, or three runes in order to make different spells. For example, a Fire rune on its own would just make Kindle, while a Fire and Air rune would make Flame Devil. You can also add a rune to an existing spell to increase that spell’s potency; for instance, adding a Fire rune to Flame Devil will make the bullet go faster and do more damage. On floors three, six, and nine you face a boss, chosen from a pool of bosses for each boss tier.
The obstacles in each room can vary widely. Some rooms will only have enemies, some rooms will have room-wide buffs such as blowing winds and hazards that need to be avoided, and other rooms that have special events, such as avoiding all damage for a certain amount of time or killing enemies in a certain order.
If you are interested in supporting Runers, you can do so by backing them on Kickstarting on voting for Runers on Steam Greenlight!
