A wave of civil unrest ravaged the country after a rigged election put President Pablo Escobeer back into power. The government labeled the political opposition as ‘the enemy of the people’ and declared a national emergency to weaken any resistance. The ruthless president killed thousands by abusing his executive powers to use chemical weapons against peaceful protesters and rebels alike.

Your team was sent into the country to help its people to overthrow the corrupt regime. They discovered the location of a factory compound that was rumored to manufacture a deadly gas. After infiltrating the compound, it became very clear that something was off. Help your team of hired guns to stop the chemical attacks and guide them back to safety.

Run For Cover is a turn-based strategy game where you control a team of soldiers trying to escape enemy territory after a mission gone wrong. The team is chased by the enemy and forced to keep moving. The world is procedurally generated and creates unique challenges every time you start a new game. The map is filled with different quest, enemies and distinctive areas. Your soldiers gain experience with every step they take and unlock powerful abilities.
