Actually, don't trust us. What do we know!? Trust the reviews...

I was just slouthing through my email history, looking for the first time we mentioned Runner2. Seeing as email is a roadmap to our lives, this should be a fun trek in to the past... 

"Runner 2 for XBLA, PS3 and PC/MAC with a 5 month dev cycle. After that, we will be moving on to laserlife with about a 9 month development."

WHAAAA! Did we ever under estimate what we were going to do with Runner2! We think, we are not sure, but we think, Runner2 could have been made in that time.

However, 16 months later a team of 9 people ended up giving us a game that has not been rushed or compromised, but has simply been crafted for it's only purpose. Fun.

This week Runner 2 will be released on most consoles and platforms. Enjoy the official game trailer:
