Remember that scene in Akira where Tetsuo steals Kaneda’s bike and gets the ever-loving shit kicked out of him by a street gang? If you’ve ever watched that scene and thought “Man, that could be me!” then you might want to look into RUNNER, a brand new VR biker title headed to PS5 and PC.
Developed by indie outfit Truant Pixel, RUNNER soaks up the style of classic cyberpunk anime, capturing the atmosphere of movies such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Patlabor – an aesthetic beautifully dubbed “Cassette Futurism” by the developer. Players will don the biker leathers of black market mod courier Mina, as she snakes her way through the sectors of “The Thoroughfare”, relentlessly pursued by agents of the Caldara corporation.
