Ring Runner combines the fast-paced action of space combat with the rich story and skill variety of an RPG.

Trek across the universe in a 30 hour long story-driven campaign based on a companion Sci Fi novel, or challenge 6 scenarios alone, cooperatively, or competitively through local or online multiplayer.

Choose from 60 customizable hulls that act as templates for 400+ wildly-varied skills. Level layouts, backgrounds, and AI enemies are all procedurally generated, yielding billions of challenges.


You awake from unelective brain surgery to find key memory centers of your brain missing. They've been replaced by Nero, your peanut-butter-craving neuro-Hud, who'll guide you through the universal super-highways known as The Rings. If you survive fiery trench runs, flail-swinging gladiators, and feuding trash moguls, you'll discover that you're a Sage, capable of rewriting the physical laws with your thoughts.

But beware The Extinguishers!

In the interests of universal order, The Consortium of the Inner Rings has slated the Sages for extinction, plunging the cosmos into a war with casualties measured in galaxies. You'll play a pivotal role in this terrible battle... if you can find out who you are.

"At its best, it takes the very idea of a twin-stick shooter, shakes it by the collar and shrieks, 'Space is enormous and deserves more than lasers and lightshows – let us strive for the beauty and variety that the stars deserve.'"
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"Bites off way more than it can chew, and it’s endlessly endearing for it."
- GiantBomb

I've never seen a game where you watch the devs descend into madness (read: awesomeness) as the game progresses.

I played this for a few hours, wasn't too enthusiastic, and forgot about it until a few months later.

Big mistake. I'd stopped at precisely the moment the developers stopped caring about what a game was "supposed" to be like, and what they actually WANTED to.

One minute I'm shooting space cops in a clunker spaceship. Next thing you know, I'm going back to the drawing board and building spaceships that should be IMPOSSIBLE so I can blow up a galaxy's Parent-Teacher Association and bill them for Dvorak keyboards.

And it just KEEPS GOING. Forget "characters you care about"--most of the games you hear people say that about don't HAVE characters. You know what's a REAL character? A REAL character says "this mission has been boring, let's pretend the mission objective was to get in the arena anyway" because THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD DO IF YOU HAD LASERS.

The game opens up the hangar and you get bogged down in minutiae because you don't know what all those numbers mean--at first. A few hours later, you're saying stuff like "okay, I'll make this ship out of paper but it'll be REALLY FAST, and by going fast it recharges shields to cover the duct tape armor, but I'LL NEED TO ALWAYS BE FIRING so my generators don't overload because then the enemy could tap me and make me EXPLODE."

Since the ships at the beginning suck, they're not much fun to pilot under the game's Newtonian physics. It's like if all you knew about Gran Turismo was driving a 1970s Volkswagon. But after a certain point? Hotrods with lasers, baby. Hotrods with DRILLS and SPACE MACES YOU SWING AROUND. You want turrets? How does 19 TURRETS, 1 SPACESHIP sound?

I'd say something trite like "the game goes NUTS after a certain point and I love it forever, forgive the weak start" but you know what? No. NOPE. Even at the game's worst, before the plot and ship customization gets great, it's still only as 'bad' as pretty much any game out there. I want you to sit down and ask yourself: is this other game I'm going to play gonna give me a SPACE MACE?

No, no it's not. Ain't happenin'.

Toss that 'other game' out the airlock. Now.

This is one of those incredible games that never got the attention it deserved. The customisation is very deep, and complex but intuitive once you know what you're doing. The controls may seem wacky at first, but they become second nature after a few hours of gameplay. The controls in Ringrunner allow for extremely skill based combat, and they also give space for fun abilities. Once you get used to it, movement feels very fluid and well-made. This game has more story and gameplay elements than most AAA games, and that for just €8.99. Why are you not buying this already, go buy it, right now, I know you're just looking for an excuse to buy it here anyway, I will be your excuse to buy this amazing game, and the moment you are ingame, you won't need one anymore!

I don't normally play top-down shooters, but this game is something really special. The Newtonian physics are not just a gimmick to make it stand out - they are a core element of the game and numerous mechanics are built around them. The build customization is like nothing I've ever seen before, with an extreme range and variety of viable builds - from a fast, highly lethal ship wielding only a massive photon bat, to a flying fortress deploying a field of turrets. Different configurations for the same hull can have radically different gameplay, and there are over 20 "sidegrade" hulls to choose as a base!

The story is not tacked on at all - it is front and center, and the writing is highly enjoyable. There is a lot of great humor and very "natural" dialogue from characters who have no voice acting or portraits, yet are far more memorable than the cast of most games nowadays. The game's universe manages to combine a serious main plot with side adventures involving things like robbing a bank with a bunch of trash trawler rednecks or shooting pirates until they agree to buy Dvorak keyboards.

The game's mechanics, immense customization and somewhat slow and lengthy (though skippable) tutorial galaxy make it hard to learn and harder to master. Once you do get into it, it's a unique experience guaranteeing crazy amounts of fun. You can feel that the developers put their heart and soul into their game, and diving into such a lovingly crafted experience made me very happy.

Its highly recommended to get an XBOX controller for this one. There's a lot of variety in game modes, a lot of customization, a lot of story.

Mi sento di consigliare caldamente questo titolo, uno Shoot 'em up di proporzioni vastissime con un ottima longevità e un potenziale enorme ancora tutto da sfruttare. La modalità campagna offre una storia valida e moltissime ore di gioco senza annoiare mentre la sezione multiplayer, ad una prima occhiata davvero molto divertente, potrebbe offrire ancora di più se la diffusione di Ring Runner: Flight of the Sages dovesse ampliarsi portando ad una disponibilità di partite online maggiore. Elemento di spessore è la personalizzazione dei moduli da combattimento, per niente banale, che lascia al giocatore ampia scelta sullo stile di combattimento da adottare. Assumere il pieno controllo del proprio mezzo richiede tempo ma offre soddisfazione una volta acquisito in quanto la manovrabilità non è propriamente arcade, ma questo dal mio personale punto di vista è un pregio e non un difetto. Purtroppo non esiste una localizzazione italiana e spero che in futuro possa essere implementata per godere appieno della storia; l'inglese utilizzato non è dei più elementari e potrebbe portare qualche difficoltà di comprensione a chi non ha un ottima preparazione nella suddetta lingua. Voto 9.
