The Game

Stunt Runner is a 2.5D sandbox physics puzzle game for PC/Mac/Linux, PS Vita, and iOS/Android that takes the best elements from classic games like The Incredible Machine and Lemmings. In each level, you’ll purchase and place props which enable Smash to successfully traverse the obstacles on each set. How you spend your money and solve each puzzle will be up to you. Multiple solutions will be a cornerstone of our design.

The Story

Smash Johnson was a wildly popular stunt actor for movies in his prime, but years of physical abuse and hilariously bad life choices have him on the ropes. Lucky for him there’s a new director in town (you!) looking for an actor to do his own epic stunts, and Smash knows this is his chance at redemption! The game follows him through several phases of filming stunts in the movie, from tryouts at the sound stage warehouse to full-blown movie sets in the Jungle, in Space, and many more. Help Smash make a comeback and become the master stunt runner he once was!

Control the Environment, Not the Character

It's your job to guide Smash (relatively) safely from start to finish on each level through your prop placement, because Smash isn't the brightest guy from all his previous head traumas and tends to just blindly run straight no matter what's in his way. This is our way of saying you don't control Smash, but instead you control the placement of props with which he'll interact in the levels. We want you to set up crazy sequences of props for Smash and use them to propel him through the level, because when you yell Action! at him, he'll start running like a maniac in whatever direction he's facing! Help him reach his mark at the end of each level. Or launch him off a cliff at 100MPH with a jetpack strapped to his back and fail the level. You won't beat the level, but we guarantee it'll be hilarious.

Why We Love It

One of the terms we often throw around with this game is User-Generated Comedy. What we mean by that is funny, unexpected stuff often happens while playing Stunt Runner as a result of how you set things up in each level. Maybe you spent 5 minutes setting up a really elaborate solution that all worked perfectly in your head, but within 5 seconds of Smash running through the level, he smacks his nuts off a cactus and faints. Who knows!

Building a Great Community

Stunt Runner will ship with 60+ levels which is awesome, but with a game like this, wouldn't it be more fun to build your own levels and challenge your friends? We think so! We're giving you our full level editor as an added feature so anyone can build an awesome stunt set! Our hope is that these tools will help foster an awesome community of people posting crazy levels and videos of funny stuff that happens while playing Stunt Runner.

Since you're bound to create hilariousness in your solutions, we're using Kamcord on mobile to allow you to record every one of your "takes", AKA your level attempts. You will have the opportunity to upload videos of your greatest takes to YouTube right from within the game, and through our video-based leaderboards you can view what other players have done and vice versa.

Core Features
  • Physics-Based Props: trampolines, umbrellas, rakes, balloons... the list goes on! Use over several different items to alter physics and lead our Smash to glorious, stuntastic victory.
  • Classic Movie Sets: Follow Smash through tryouts at the warehouse, then go on-set with him on iconically-themed movie sets like sci-fi and others to come in the future.
  • Sandbox-Style Gameplay: Experiment with different props and find unexpected ways to complete a level. There's no set way to beat any level, so go nuts and figure out an awesome way to get Smash to his mark!
  • Level Editor: You’ll get access to the tools we used to build all our scenes so you can develop your own levels.
  • Community-Created Levels: Levels created in the editor can be uploaded, downloaded, and rated within our level creator community.
  • Leaderboards: Did you find the shortest way to beat a level? What about the longest way? The game features a robust leaderboard system where you can compete against your friends and the Stunt Runner community to get the best stats in several categories.
  • YouTube Integration (mobile only): Did something funny happen, and no one was there to see it? Stunt Runner is always recording your takes, so if you want to share something with the world, you can upload a video directly to YouTube, right from within the game.

    What's Left to Do?

    Platform-Specific Feature Integration: If we're fortunate enough to get Greenlit, we'll want to integrate Steam leaderboards and achievements to add a whole new level of competition and replayability to Stunt Runner.

    Community Level System: Since players can build levels, we need to implement a place for levels to be uploaded, shared, voted on and downloaded! We may push this to after launch so we can get the game in your hands right away, but we've designed our level-saving functionality with this feature in mind, so it's definitely coming.

    We Need YOU!

    Of course we need your votes to get Stunt Runner on Steam, but there's SO much more you can do to help us! Stunt Runner is still in alpha, which means we have plenty of development to go. Want to shape the development of this game? Give us suggestions for usable items you'd like to see in the game down below in the comments section!. We'd love to hear the community's thoughts and ideas for making Stunt Runner an even greater experience, so this is your chance to shape the way this game is developed.
