About the game

Joan Mad Run is a pixel-art gory fight-to-the-death run’n’gun, that takes your enemies straight to hell. Literally.



The story begins with Joan waking up from a razor-sharp nightmare, which, ironically, turns out to be reality. Locked up in prison and bearing no memories about her past, she is left one-on-one with her insanity. Led by her inner voice, that craves for blood, and remorseless in the desire to find out the truth about her real self, Joan sets off on her cutthroat escape mission.



Having no one she can trust, Joan, luckily, has her guns, that would leave no chance for anyone or anything in her way. Stimulating in its sheer insanity and unnerving in its out-of-control brutality, the game instantly forces you into Joan’s shoes. And that’s when you get an amazing chance to satisfy your bloodlust by burning your enemies alive, melting them with acid, chopping them and watching their blood spurt like geyser, striking them with lightning, exploding them, squeezing them like bugs or sending them directly to the blazing inferno.



Pure and straight-down-the-line in its skeletal outline, Joan Mad Run is not that simple as it may seem. Being infected with the thrill of madness, you will have to try to keep your head cool, think fast and be hell dexterous if you hope to survive. Deadly traps, grisly bosses and callous scumbags are all here. So grab your gun, bite the bullet and show them who’s boss.

Hi, ppl.!

John Mad Run is a shortened and very simplified demo of Joan Mad Run.

We're still working on Joan.

Soon we'll launch project on Kickstarter to speed up getting in on PC and Steam and to make it even more than we got initially planned. KS project is already approved - launching in about two weeks. The finished game is planned for autumn/Q3 - KS money will help bringin it on PC earlier.

But the main reason for KS is to add more content and features to the game that we initially thought to make much simpler. Features mostly suggested by the community here and on many of game forums. Thus I can say Joan is truly the community driven project.

John will be added to Steam too - a bit later.
