A Dog-Filled Update

Hey everyone,

My name is Brian and I’m one of the artists working on Runner3. This is my first time writing on the blog, so let me just say it’s nice to meet you!

If you’ve played Runner2, you know we have a tendency to jam-pack our games with as much art as possible. Runner3 will be no different, which means I probably have a lot of late nights ahead of me. The good news is that I have four dogs—including a 16-year-old Boston Terrier who’s deaf and only has one eye—to keep guard for me. These are the kinds of things you need to worry about when you live in the middle of the woods. 

With Runner3, we’re challenging ourselves to “open up the world” and allow people to see as much of the surrounding environment as possible. Since I’m primarily an environmental artist, this presents an especially unique challenge for me. It’s a fun challenge, however, because we have a lot of amazing sights and spectacles planned for the game. If you thought this carrot creature was strange, trust me when I say you ain’t seen nothing yet. 

Now that I’ve had the chance to introduce myself a bit, I figured I should probably end this post by offering you a glimpse of something I’ve been working on recently: 

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I can’t wait to show you more of what we have planned for Runner3! And in the meantime, let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
