What is Top Run about?

Despite the fact that Top Run is an endless runner, we still felt like it needs a bit of a backstory. Why is the guy running? Who is he dealing with? We decided to recall 1980’s cartoons for inspiration.

Typical 80’s action cartoon = mutants/superpowers + loyal companions + villains who want to destroy the world.

Here’s our story.

Kevin is a high school student who lives with his parents and has a best friend – his dog Buddy.

Kevin and Buddy

One day he tries to insert a floppy disk into his old computer, it doesn’t go well and Kevin gets shocked.

That’s how he acquired his special ability – to run lightning fast and throw infinite floppy disks with a speed of a bullet. Buddy was trying to save Kevin so obviously he also got some very cool superpowers.

Coincidentally, the same day a bunch of weird villains has attacked the city and Kevin and Buddy decided to save it.

Pretty deep backstory, just as all 80’s cartoons :)

You will play as Kevin and together with Buddy you will run across the city, killing villains and collecting pixels to become even stronger.

Soon we’ll tell you more about gameplay, art and other stuff. Stay tuned!
