2nd game I'm posting here at the forums. Criticism, bug reports etc... are very welcome.
I won't say much about the game, there are no surprises, but the game relies on the player discovering a few things out on the first playthroughs. After playing you can read more about it here: RUN.

Looks very interesting, but i can't really figure out how it works. How are the cops moving? What is your goal?

Alright, so I tried it out because it looks weird, and weird is cool!
First off, the sounds are great. I really thought that something was going on outside! LMAO. I kept looking out the window :P . But like Attan, I have no idea what's going on. I guess I grab the white ball and run about? I guess we're missing something here? Perhaps give away a little more of a clue to the goal or to a point of the game, because it really isn't making sense :cry:

**Edit
I read the story behind the game's inspiration, and really like it. RUN, as I understand, is less a game and more of a statement. It's art in game form lolol.

Interesting Game. Fits the story well. Only complaint is that I couldn't figure out a way to end the game. Ended up killing the process in task manager. I'm probably missing some obvious exit button.

Thanks for the feedback guys. It was choice to give players very little to go on so they could make their own associations; i.e.: Attan saw the "enemy's" as cops, other people see them differently. There is a point to the game, just not a winning conclusion. You can never win. So in a sense it truly is more of statement than a game. But there are gameplay elements to it. And gameplay influences (pac-man being the most notable).

To exit the game, alt-f4. I took out the ESC key as exiting method and forgot to put it back. Thanks for the heads up scidave.

Nice sounds!


And I discovered something after the third playthrough: the runtime crashed. This happens consistently, you should report it as a bug in Construct.

Also: as I was playing, a police vehicle went by my house with the siren on. I was unsure until it hit the speedbump outside my place.
So. Awesome.
