    YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! I literally cannot stop screaming this from the top of my lungs from a rooftop very high. One of my all time favorite games ever made, Rune, is finally being released by Human Head on Steam. Not only is this happening, but it's happening this Wednesday, June 13th at 10AM Pacific!

    It also appears that this release will include Steam achievements, the additional enemies found in the PS2 release, level edits to remove confusing areas or areas that were just hard to get to, and more. You can also select "Classic Mode", which will launch the game in a sort of compatibility mode that lets you play with old, retail version of the game if you so choose.

    So, I only have two questions. What about Rune co-op? And what about the next Rune game? As this will be called Rune Classic, kind of implies something new is in the works. Anyway, watch this slightly humorous trailer to tid you over until tomorrow.

    I'll be all over this if the price is right.

    Loved the game and would love to own it again and have it work properly on a modern pc

    That's great. Though, if this one is called "Rune Classic", chances are that they're working on a remake, but, gosh, it's time for sequel already.

    Love the game. I still have my original copy though so I don't need this and definitely won't be buying from steam anyway... though a new rune game could rule.

    Right, every time somebody promotes it, I will say my piece against it. Equal representation herp derp. ... Seems to be an appalling (to me) trend here too post OMG look what you can buy on steam as news. Do some of you own stock in Valve? To me it seems that the distribution channel is a byline and not headline worthy.

    Indeed steam has been forced upon me. It was required for DS3 and DNF. I still bought retail and not from steam. I put it in my sig because I wanted something to replace the huge banners with my nic.

    The thing is, you can't buy Rune anywhere anymore. There was only one not exactly legal way to get it, and even that was a long shot. The fact that you can buy it anywhere now is awesome news.

    I'll grant you that on this one. ... Though I have seen used copies of the original around quite often. Was apparently allot more popular here in Texas then I used too think.

    I used to have a hi-res texture pack wonder if steam would nerf it as it directly replaced much of the base game textures.

    So looking at the wiki I gather this game is a third person hack and slash? What is the major draw and why should I give my left testicle to play this game?

    If it has Zelda elements then I hand my wallet over immediately.

    I doubt Steam would "nerf" it. If anything it is probably handled like the steam versions of Quake.

    I installed Rygels High rez texture pack and Darkplaces for the steam version of Quake 1 and it worked like a charm. Obviously the directory will be slightly different since it is in steamapps, but the rest works the same.

    It's all action all the time. There aren't many "puzzle" like things you have to do, you just run and chop hellspawn into bits. lopping off their heads is especially fulfilling.
    It does have achievements, but I'm guessing this is still true.

    Played for about 5 minutes and found 4 bugs already :D

    1.Subtitles aren't keeping up with the voices
    2.Old mans voice was overlapping with other lines during the hero introduction
    3.Vsync is off in the advanced options, yet is on in game and introduces major mouse stutter. Turning ON will turn it off and reduce the stutter
    4.Cannot change value for minimum framerate.

    Yeah there are several issues. They actually literally just pushed a patch and supposedly have another update coming soon.
