Gamers' Central has posted a preview of Human Head's upcoming action/adventure game, Rune. Set in 3rd-person perspective, you play Ragnar, a Viking with brutal strength and deadly weapons, hacking his way through RUNE is heavily influenced by Norse mythology and should provide a unique gaming experience. Here's a quote about the fighting in the game:
Pummelling your opponent to death with consecutive hits is a good and proven way to send them on a one-way trip to Valhalla, but there's more to the combat system. If you just press the attack button while standing still you will do a "neutral" attack. Ragnar will then just swing his hammer/axe/sword. But if you press attack while moving forward, the attack will have that extra gung-ho touch due to the increased aggressiveness. The opposite effect can be achieved while pressing the opposite -the backward- key. Sometimes it is better to back off and if you can manage to strike a few hits while doing so, then that's awfully nice and it can save your sturdy Viking neck.There is a lot more in the preview, so head over and give it a read. Westlake Interactive has recently noted they are well underway with the Mac version of Rune. Thanks to their hard work, it should be released shortly after the PC version is out later this Fall.
