Rune Update
7:17 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

RuneNews has posted an update from Chris Rhinehart of Human Head Studios about their popular 3D Viking adventure Rune. In this update he notes the team is still working hard on the game, adding many new features. Along with bug fixes and other language support, they also have other cool things in store for fans of the game. Here's a clip with more:

  • New DeathMatch maps, some exploring some old favorite game techniques, and others exploiting some interesting abilities of the game to make the experience unique. We will be releasing some of these maps in the very near future.
  • Our modelers have been working on some new models/skins for the game, specifically more female models for multiplay. Additionally, we will release information on how the mod community can use their own models and skins in the game.
  • We plan on having a public release to unlock the ability to play as the Sark in multiplayer (which can already be hacked into the game as is, but we will unlock the ability for everyone. This does NOT include SarkRagnar, who is considered a cheat character, and was disabled in the 1.01 patch).
  • Head over and read through the full update for more info on their work. We've contacted Westlake about a possible Mac patch being released and will pass on any info we might receive. If you haven't tried out Rune yet, be sure to head over to Macgamefiles and download it now. Or if you have time to grab the 82MB demo, order a Macgamefiles CD and let us do the work for you.
