What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We planned to rework the game more actively, and Early Access is a good way for us to share the game with you until the final release.

One point that might be interesting for you (apart from the incredible fun of this gem) is that if you buy it now you'll keep it when upgraded.

And the most interesting point (for you, us, and everyone else) is that we are craving suggestions! So anything you like, dislike, or think might help us build a better game is welcome.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will probably be released before 2024, depending on how successful the game is and how people's suggestions change this game.”

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

“The game may be completely redone with Unreal Engine and have additional levels.
We plan to improve the multiplayer, with an online versus and a ranking system.
And if there is a small community behind the game, why not add a level editor.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“For now, we just have one level to be played with your friends.
It works with a keyboard or controllers, and can only be played with shared screen for now.”

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

“Yes, the price will probably double when rewritten with Unreal Engine, and change again with multiplayer, ranking, IA, and other game modes.”

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

“We will monitor the reviews and forums if a small community is created.
You can also send any suggestion to suggestions@virtualsociety.co .”

About This Game

Running Guys is a very small running game where a police officer chases a thief.

This game was developed in two weeks almost 10 years ago and revived recently (as many children enjoyed it at a science fair).

There is only one level (you should give it a chance :P), but we will rework this game in a few weeks to make it with Unreal Engine (mainly to test exports on different platforms).

You should definitely grab it now, as it has a low price :P

Little tip, when you just hit the ground after a jump or a fall, do a roll!
