The training takes place two kilometers below ground deep inside a secret military facility. Here you'll face an onslaught of challenging Combat Training Robot in a range of different training environments.

Your feedback always matters
As you all know this game is being made with the support from you guys. We're constantly checking the forums for feedback on the releases, and to this date we have already made over 15 various additions and adjustments based solely on your feedback on the Running Man Alpha release.

One of the changes was to remove the stamina bar from the HUD because you felt it was to old school. Instead you now have to listen to your breathing to know when you are getting exhausted. We also added a warning indicator so you know when a robots is about to take you down from behind.

Keep giving us your Running Man feedback in the forum, so we can make the best game possible and please help us spread the word about the game by telling your friends about it.

Thanks for your support - Interstellar Marines would not be the same without you!

I was a bit meh on your AAA Indie idea, but after reading the FAQ, I want to at least say I fully support it. I intend to buy the spearhead(correct?) account type thing, but may have to hold off, may have to buy later instead. Really sweet game and that AAA Indie thing is a great idea too.

I'll be tracking :)

Yes Spearhead is correct, that account will give you access to the 2ª and 3ª game of the IM trilogy for free (and other goodies), you can also convert support medals (5€ each) to a spearhead account if you buy enough of them.

So if you don't have enough now to buy the full Spearhead or even the frontline account them just buy support medals and you will support the AAAindie idea, the making of this game and also maybe have exclusive early access to the multiplayer preview slice, ZPS did that with Running Man.

I BELIEVE!!! and you guys will believe also. ;)
