This summer we decided to create our first game and since we are not experienced gamedevs (not even a tiny little bit), we picked something simple enough for a first game – an endless runner. However, we didn’t want to make a simple coin collector (even though it’s still a large part of the game), we challenged ourselves to go as far as we can to make a unique endless runner.
The game is called Top Run and it’s a randomized infinite runner focused on action and fun.
Since we were raised on 80’s movies, and it’s an atmosphere we adore, the game is set in that time and heavily inspired by movies and music of the era.
We also love modern throwbacks to the decade such as Kung Fury and Far Cry Blood Dragon. This is a visual style we hope to achieve.
In terms of gameplay we are really inspired by Sunset Overdrive. It’s such a fun game with crazy atmosphere and it’s something we would be happy to see in our game.
Basically, you run, shoot, slide, dodge bullets, kill weird enemies, collect collectables and just have fun.
We are planning to release our game on Android first, and iOS as soon as possible. In the long term we are hoping to release it on Steam.
We hope our game turns out to be what it is in our heads and meanwhile we will share more on how we are trying to achieve it and what it is to create a game with zero prior experience.
