Runes of Brennos is a combat game between druids of different clans, who fight for political power. Battles take place in temple-arenas and are fought with magical runes. The player uses the Leap Motion to draw these runes on the screen and can then cast them towards the enemy player/NPC. It's a game that's all about skills and wits. The player has to learn the runes, their power and weaknesses. To win, you need the right strategy and perfect timing; it's like playing a cool, expanded, fast-paced version of rock-paper-scissors. Leap Motion is, for us, the perfect technology to make this game as immersive as possible, where the player really feels like he is actually casting magic, instead of just pressing a button to do so.

LuGus Studios is happy to announce Runes of Brennos!

Runes of Brennos

Runes of Brennos (RoB) is an improved and expanded version of Runes with more content and improved gameplay. We hope to release RoB on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux, with a focus on mouse and keyboard gameplay (Leap Motion, Extreme Reality and touchscreen will be supported). 

Your support

We can only do this with your help! Your support is critical! It’s easy: we need at least 5000 votes on Steam Greenlight. If you have a Steam account, please consider giving us a vote. It’s as simple as clicking one "yes" button.  Thanks a lot! :)

With enough votes we can bring Runes of Brennos on Steam, this means:

  • Bringing the power of the runes to more players 
  • A Runes of Brennos community on Steam with attention for competitive players 
  • Improved mouse-focused gameplay (in addition of the Leap Motion gameplay) 
  • More content at launch 
  • Continued game support and updates 
  • Cool game achievements 
  • Many more Steam feature integrations (Steam Cards?) 

Not convinced yet?

F.A.C.T.S. is the biggest comics, sci-fi and anime festival in the Benelux and LuGus Studios will be there to show our new games!  Visit us at F.A.C.T.S. 2013 and play an early version of RoB on a touchscreen. We'll have a special RoB present for those who win a magic battle at the event.

This looks like a great game. I like that it will depend on the persons skill, not just how fast they they can click.
I can't wait till the Leap Motions and your game ship/are ready to try it out.

This looks exactly like the spell casting system used on Arx Fatalis so the mouse is a perfect analogue to the leap motion hardware.
