London- 6 th August, 2014- Independent developers Let’s Get Kraken Games have joined forces with digital publisher Mastertronic to announce top down rogue-like shooter, Runers, coming to PC through Steam this September!

Step into a magical dungeon where in the darkest depths lurk menacing monster hordes and deadly bosses. Gather powerful runes and combine them to conjure over 250 spells and obliterate your foes. Master spells to unlock new challenges and achievements throughout your quest which grant you potent new abilities. Travel through procedurally-generated floors in search of the ultimate challenge and see what potent magic you can produce! Can you make it to the final floor to defeat the supreme boss in the ultimate showdown?

Mark Bergerson, Co-creator, Let’s Get Kraken states, “We here at LGK Games are excited to partner with Mastertronic in bringing Runers to the world. Our main focus during development was customization and replayability. We made a game that we love to play and we want people to get that itch and experience the different ways of playing. Runers is an easy game to pick up and play, but difficult to master. The power is in the player’s hands and the challenge lies in seeing how far you can go. We are looking forward to seeing how the public reacts."

Stuart Morton, Producer, Mastertronic says “The team at Let’s Get Kraken Games have created something special in Runers, it’s a rogue-like dungeon shooter that will keep you on your toes and make you scream in anguish about the run that was nearly ‘the one’ whilst keeping you coming back for just one more try. We’re really looking forward to seeing the public’s reaction to the free demo, available now on Steam!’

For a taste of magic, play the free Runers demo available now on Steam. The full game will be launching for PC through Steam on 2 nd September.

LGK Games

LGK Games (Let’s Get Kraken) founded in 2011 by two college friends who love games and making games they’d love to play! Runers started off as a simple chat whilst reminiscing about games they used to play and were inspired by which resulted in them balancing game development in between life and full-time jobs to create a piece of wonderment for the public to enjoy. Runers is their debut game.
