What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Lethal Running is being developed by a small group of people. The original idea evolved to a full blown role playing game which is very complex by nature. Due to limited development resources we will greatly benefit from as much early feedback as possible to finish a game you people want to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Lethal Running will stay in Early Access until we have a consistent and fun game. This could take up to one year.”

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

“New kinds of hunters are planned as well as more weapons and loot. Bugs will be fixed. The Hacking skill will be implemented.
There might be various new game play elements like an underground battle arena where illegal fights are offered and valuable loot can be won. Due to the nature of a game about a game show a lot of things are possible that would otherwise make no sense - the creators of the Lethal Running Show are very creative...”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable. Gameplay includes:
  • gun and melee battles
  • taking over enemies with the Mind Controller
  • placing ground mines
  • freezing enemies by throwing flashbangs
  • limiting injuries by wearing appropriate armor
  • nuclear contaminated areas
  • stealth movement using the Cloak Device
  • character upgrades by learning valuable skills and looting better equipment
  • watching your hero's popularity grow by doing the right things
  • talking and trading with residents
  • pickpocketing loot from residents
  • surviving the wasteland by finding water, food and herbs as well as by lighting warming campfires and cooking food
  • eating, drinking, healing wounds and diseases as well as sleeping
  • lockpicking and blowing up doors
  • Repairing broken loot, recharging energy based loot and modding loot

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

“The price might be increased as the final game will offer more content.”

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

“We always appreciate constructive feedback. While we cannot implement all suggestions, we do listen to all of them. A lot of improvements do already originate from our community.”
