Room 8 Studio, the burgeoning indie development studio, is excited to announce that their newest iOS arcade adventure, Riot Runners has recently won the Best Game In Show Audience Award at the 2013 Indie Prize Ceremony.

Room 8 team says :”We are proud to be honored as the Audience’s Choice at the show as we’ve poured endless effort and sweat into our game.”

Riot Runners is already available in German and Canadian App Stores - both of which included the game in their Featured New Arcade & Action categories - and is about to go worldwide in the near future too.

Infused with an atmospheric steampunk aesthetic, Riot Runners pits heroic robots on a running rampage against their evil masters towards freedom. The game blends together side scroller action and the white-knuckle excitement of the endless running games with uniquely evolving in-game elements and oodles of different, diversely designed robots to play with. Best of all, each unique robot hero comes complete with their own unique super-powers! These elements set Riot Runners apart from its competition. Everything from backdrops, to obstacles and enemies evolve. New in-game elements pop up, while obstacles grow different and increasingly more dangerous! Luckily players can customize their robot heroes and enhance their abilities.
