Rune Impressions, Screen Shots
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Our CGA partner Stomped has posted up a quick preview of Rune, the upcoming Viking-flavored action/adventure game from HumanHead. They have played a recent build of the title and seem very pleased with it so far. Here's a excerpt of their impressions:
The game takes place in the middle ages during the time of the Vikings. The player character, Ragnar, is the only survivor of an attack of his fellow band of Vikings thanks to the magic of the treacherous villian Conrack. Ragnar has Odin, the head of the Norse gods, behind him, as he seeks to defeat the villian, but will it be enough to defeat Conrack? We will let you know in our full review later this week.Check out the rest of the preview for more info, including some great new screen shots taken of the game. For even more eye candy, check out PlanetUnreal, which has 12 new pics of in-game action.
Human Head has done a lot to the Unreal engine for Rune and it shows. This could be the most beautiful looking game ever to use this engine and that's saying something. The controls of the player character are very smooth and are more akin to a first person game rather than your normal third person Tomb-Raider style adventure.

Rune was just recently announced as being Gold Master and ready for production on the PC. The Mac version should hopefully be released within a month of the PC build.
