Pick up your rifle and join the Green or Grey army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box! RUNNING WITH RIFLES is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds. In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!

As said a few weeks ago RWR 0.93 was coming in a few weeks and now it's indeed here! Most of the crucial changes were covered that time, go check it out if you're eager for a refresher. A cleaned up and probably incomplete change log can be seen here.

Beta 0.93

On other news, my Mac mini has finally arrived, so completing (read: starting) the Mac port gets closer every day. We're also preparing a new demo, so if any of you, the beta-testers, stumble on any crashes or critical launch issues, would be gold for us to know about it. We of course know each and every other bug the game has, so we'll process the other bug reports a bit later, obviously they are welcome too :P Just stop by at the forum and speak your mind!

Any feedback on the current state of campaign would also be highly useful for us. We've obviously played the game for a long time, and to keep the campaign challenging for us, it can become unbearable for newcomers. Campaign difficulty settings are also coming, but aren't there yet. We haven't finished balancing the campaign, far from it, and especially the maps you see in the later phases might be a bit so-so in terms of balance, depending on which route you take. Also writing (faction, map and base names, dialogue, item naming and descriptions) can be considered placeholders at this stage, that is something we will start working with with a clearer mind for the Steam Early Access.

Speaking of which, RWR Steam Early Access release should soonish follow the release of the demo, the biggest time sink being the promotional video. The last ones are starting to look dated by now so we've got to step up in that department as well.

yupp, there aren't many people playing it online yet.
The game should be on Steam Early Acess in the next 3-4 weeks, so except much more players by then as the playerbase should grow significantly.

I've been watching and playing this game since the .67 days. Watching the way this game has grown and flourished is amazing.

You have managed to capture the feelings and experiences- in a little top-down voxel shooter, even- that big name games like Planetside and Planetside 2 haven't ever managed to give me. I've got nothing but positive to say. :)

Demo does not run on Ubuntu 13.10...running in the terminal says it can't find libogre 1.7.2, however the full game works. Yes I installed the extra 32 bit libs. Thought you guys should know.

Yup, the demo should be still updated soon (even if it's not even close to "soon" anymore since the first time I said the same thing), just been having to postpone it too many times now.

There are external services that can do voice without our involvement, e.g. the guys playing on SAS servers have a teamspeak server up for general RWR use. Helps keeping us the devs focused on the gameplay matters.

Another great option is Mumble, it's free software instead of just being free to use.

This is a great game. I've described it to friends as a combination between General Chaos, Cannon Fodder, a rather obscure but innovative game called Net War and once vehicles are added, even a touch of Warhawk. On top of all of this, the developer is great and really listens to the community.

@TuttuFR We'll see how useful that ends up being, but at least it's there now!

Sep 5 2014, 4:18pm

@TuttuFR">.@TuttuFR If by next version you meant post-1.0, no one knows :) 0.98 comes with the 1st boss map and this T.co roughly

Sep 5 2014, 3:53pm

@TuttuFR Not in scope of 1.0, but it's possible it'll happen afterwards

Sep 5 2014, 3:38pm

@RagerX Thanks! It sure is one addictive game I tell you that, must have spent countless hours in total playing it.

RT @ESL_Thefly: Just bought #RunningWithRifles @modulaatio - great looking topdown tactical shooter, check it out! (there's a demo) http://

@TuttuFR Let me guess: taking the spawn trucks for a charge through front? Cracks me up every time :P

Aug 19 2014, 8:46am

@Je__day That's good! It's partly what we are after with the drm-free approach anyway, hoping it'll serve to spread the word a little bit
