Update 6: Lengthened the track for Triple Jump World Record

Hi folks,

It became almost impossible to beat the Triple Jump World Record because the track was too short. I lengthened it a bit. Go beat the record now! But do not go too hard, I don't want to lengthen the track again! :)

(by the way, the development of the mobile version of the game is progressing slowly but surely. I should be able to release it at the end of the year. If you want to be beta tester, please send me an email to ragdoll.runner@gmail.com)

About This Game

Ragdoll Runners is a physics-based Track and Field game where you control independently the two legs of an athlete to compete in 8 events of different types: sprint, long jump, triple jump, hurdles.

You run with two keys: one key per leg. So you cannot count on pounding your keyboard to achieve victory like in most athletics games. You require good timing and mental strength.

At first, you run and jump in a disjointed fashion, causing funny situations. However, the better you get, the more your actions resemble those of true champions and it becomes very rewarding.

A third key allows to lean forward on certain occasions: to finish a sprint, a jump, or to jump over a hurdle.

Game Modes

  • Solo: compete against increasingly strong opponents and become a champion in each event.
  • Splitscreen: play against 3 friends on the same computer (gamepad supported), like in this hilarious video.
  • Online
    • Confront the world record and your friends' records.
    • Challenge mode: compete against increasingly strong records from the leaderboards and become a concurrent for other players.
    • Daily Contest : experience the stress of competition with a limited number of attempts each day. Do your best in each event to score the most points in the Octathlon.

You can try the web demo!

Note: in case it's not obvious, this game is very different from QWOP.
