What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is a solo-developed game, and has recently undergone some massive under-the-hood changes to gameplay and enemy AI performance. The first major update, arriving towards the end of November 2023, will represent the current planned gameplay, levels, and a selection of roguelite and interactable mechanics that will be developed over the following months.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until it's done! If all goes well, within a year of the November 2023 Update. Halloween 2024 would certainly be rad, but no promises! Solo dev with a full-time job!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Definite Planned features:
-15+ levels
-Roster of about 30 enemies
-10+ cosmetic unlockables
-New abilities to unlock and choose between.
-Several animatics as transitions / game-over screens
-Controller re-mapping COMPLETE

Hopeful goals:
-Online multiplayer / co-op with several game modes
-Level editor / builder
-Repositionable objects (fine-tuning) COMPLETE”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The November 2023 Update contains 3 levels, multiple enemies and over a dozen upgrades & cosmetics, and will continue to be updated with additional levels & roguelite upgrades over time.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The target price is between $5-$10 USD depending on how much content is finalized. Up until that point the game will remain in Early Access for the lower entry price of $3USD. Any financial help is a win, and allows me to work more fully on Run For Your Life!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As a developer I am extremely attentive to community feedback and requests. If you think of something you'd like to see in the game, there is a strong chance you'll see it happen, so long as I feel it fits the game's tone and can be achieved on a mechanical level. As well, I post frequent updates of new features on a weekly basis through the social media accounts linked.

The easiest way to reach out with issues, feedback, or suggestions, is through social media.

About This Game

Run For Your Life is survival Roguelite game being solo-developed by Puke&Guts, where you:
-only have melee weapons
-aren't very good at combat
-are a potato

And it's extremely fun!
Armed only with a baseball bat, you'll need to be creative- Set Traps, Lure Hordes & Barricade Rooms while you wait to progress.

Every object can be moved and destroyed, and even repaired with the right upgrades.

You will have the opportunity to upgrade from the standard bat though!

Every level begins with a choice of Weapon, Ability or Passive Upgrade to spice up your run.

Just because your weapons are melee does NOT mean no ranged combat!

Use smaller objects as Improvised Weapons and Projectiles. Send a chair flying into a crowd, instant chaos.

Tons of Unique Worlds with New Mechanics Incoming

The level list is small to start, but should offer a glimpse of the future and potential of Run For Your Life!
