Retro-styled games seem to be a really hot gaming trend at the moment. There has been numerous indie successes catering to the nostalgia craze. The best games have been masters at combining the best things from the old days with modern mechanics. CrossCode looks to be one of those games.
CrossCode is a single-player Action-RPG about a player stuck in an MMO of the distant future. Now before you think traditional fantasy with sword and sorcery, this game is all about one thing: throwing VRPs – or simply “balls” as everyone seems to call it. Not only are these balls your trusty tool to master several dungeons full of puzzles, they are also your weapons. Together with close-range attacks and special skills, they help you to fend off hordes of enemies.
February 20th is Love Your Pet Day, and at Runway Games, we love our pets. Who doesn’t love their fury (or scaly) family members?
In honor of love your pet day, Runway Games is doing a contest giveaway for a Red Sea Exodus t-shirt and other customized items. We will be selected the ugliest pet, and the cutest pet. To enter, send us a photo of your pet and all its glory. You may either contact us on Facebook, Twitter, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You have until the 19th! Get snapping!
One of the cool things about making games is you get to make ’em about things you find interesting. Space, cowboys, robotic men – even rainbow unicorns with laser beam eyes. That’s why people love making games so much. Who doesn’t wanna make a game about something they find fascinating? We like space, for instance. One of our games, Solar Roller, is all “spacey” and cool. Why? Because space is friggin’ neat!
As if to prove how neat it is, last night, a giant space mountain (comet) flew by our heads. What’s more about this giant space mountain? That giant space mountain had its own giant space moon. So keep your eyes to the sky and maybe you’ll see some of space’s fanatical wonders for yourself in the future. If not? Turn on Solar Roller to experience them anyway. Or just play it when there isn’t anything particularly interesting whizzing by our planet.

Even the big wigs can change the way they give up the goods, just like us. Bethesda just announced it will be removing subscription fees for Elder Scrolls Online when TESO launches on next gen consoles in June of this year. For all those who don’t prescribe to team PC, it cannot come soon enough, as the game has been available for quite some time. Since TESO first launched on PC in 2014, there have been mixed reviews about the game, specifically the subscription fee. This will likely resolve some of the harsher criticism.
