Rune is a third person action, combat, and adventure games with strong themes from Norse mythology. You play a young Viking trying to uncover the mysteries around recent attacks on your village. The game is played from third person perspective to make the melee combat with a huge variety of weapons more fun, as well as giving you a chance to fully appreciate and explore the complex world.

I know it's been a while... We had to take a little break for a while so that some of our team members could deal with some "real life" issues but fortunately things are once again stable and our team has completely reassembled. We are again making steady and positive progress.


We are currently working on the last couple of maps and putting the final touches on some of our mini-bosses. We are trying to make the last couple of maps as epic as possible and this unfortunately will take some additional time but the wait will be worth it.


In addition, we have new and redesigned RPG character portraits. Debujin, our artist wasn't entirely satisfied with his initial portraits and as a result he has made new portraits. He felt his old portrait design didn't adequately capture the proper mood of the Thieves Guild mod. I think the new "dark" themed portraits look spectacular.


Other than that we continue to make progress on our project. We still don't have a release date but have no doubt - we will finish this project.

Live life so completely that when death comes to you like a thief in the night, there will be nothing left for him to steal.

The Pc version is called "rune". The Ps2 version is called Rune: Viking Warlord. Hmm..the game was easy to beat and fun multiplayer, but it gets old. So thats why i went to play the real-unreal.

The Sp is dumb and too hard.
but MP is really great since you don't need a CD and the game is compatible even to old machines

I wasn't too impressed by it, got tired a little ways in. It wasn't too terribly bad, but it just didn't "click" with me.

Gothic was much better.

I said that thing about Multiplayer because I joined some servers... the problem was the server... Hardcore games sux (too fast kill!). The best thing to do is add the mutator that reduces the overall damage for a looooong medieval duel :P

Great Single player, great multiplayer, the camera angle works great, and the makers put a huge amount of effort into it. There is still a large community around it as well.

Hell im still making models for it ;)

And the wierdest thing is that ESRB mislabled it with the wrong discriptor, it just says "Mild Animated Violence" right on the box.

I liked a lot this game... A nice engine used (An Enhanced UT Engine), with great Models, Maps and HistoryLine...

They could "invest" a little bit more in the first-person camera... I mean, how can I fight without seeing my weapon?

Also, the multiplayer sux... And there's no bot support...

Here's a game that I haven't had anything at all to do with in the past. It just doesn't seem to have much of a hype around it. I really want to play it!
