This Will Change the Way You Play

If you have been following along our Facebook (which you should), then you will have read about some vague updates coming to Solar Roller. It’s about time we reveal just what those changes are, don’t ya think?

Skins, skins, and skins! Play the updated version, and you’ll instantly notice a huge difference. Not only have we applied new skins to the platforms, but some of the planets got a new and improved look as well. We’ve even applied some particle systems to this updated version, giving some plants a unique atmosphere.

See the difference?

We’ve even added an entirely new planet, ready to be conquered at a moment’s notice. With this new planet, it poses new challenges. We are introducing three new platforms, each ready to rock your world. The red will make things a little hotter, the green might make you want to stay a little while longer, and the blue? Well, I hope you’re ready to try your patience because it might just have a mind of its own.

This will likely resolve some of the harsher criticism. Continue reading It’s About Time Bethesda Did This

Solar Roller – The Second Game from Runway Games

Have you heard the news?  Runway Games is pregnant! We’ve got a new baby in our metaphorical belly, and we’re cookin’ it until it gets a little bit cuter. It looks like this lil’ one is gonna be a platformer. Mom and Dad are so proud.

Right now, we are calling the game “Solar Roller.” Kinda catchy, right? The game development is in its early stages, but it’s definitely going to be a good one.

It provides an increasing challenge for the player as you progress, giving a sense of accomplishment for ever new level completed. Continue reading Solar Roller – The Second Game from Runway Games
