"Sometimes a good videogame is just awesome"



The history of runner...

The RUNNER series began in 2010 with BIT.TRIP RUNNER, the fourth game in the original BIT.TRIP series. It’s considered by many to be one of the best titles on the WiiWare service, as well as one of the greatest runner games ever made. It even won the “Excellence in Visual Arts” award at the 2011 Independent Games Festival!

The sequel, BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, was released in 2013. It won the 2013 Machinima award for Best Indie Game and was also featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-rated Wii U title for that year. 

It also had a drunk pickle as a playable character, an astonishing feat which somehow earned us no accolades.


the future of runner...

Our hope for Runner3 is the same as our hope was for Runner2: to challenge ourselves to make a game that outdoes its predecessor in every possible way. It’s a lofty goal, but we plan to do whatever it takes to make it happen. 

Whether or not we’ll be able to outdo a playable drunk pickle remains to be seen.
