Named one of “The Greatest Games of All Time” by GameSpot, Lode Runner was created by Douglas E. Smith in 1983 while a student at the University of Washington. The game was not only an award-winning bestseller, but also a significant milestone that influenced many in the video game industry. Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, said of the game, “my favorite for many, many years. Every level was a real puzzle with its own mechanics, its own dynamics, its own kind of solution. … I can’t imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.” In a tribute to Smith after his death in 2014, US Gamer editor-in-chief Jeremy Parish commented, “[he] created one of the most innovative formative works of the medium, a game that managed to transcend international boundaries and become a beloved classic among American PC gamers and Japanese console fanatics alike.”

As a classic from video game history looks to the future, “Lode Runner Legacy” can keep evolving with your support. We hope you enjoy the game!

Please include a two player coop mode. That has always been the absolute highlight in every other lode runner game. Very excited to play this!

Hi, this is Taka. I really love this game and now I am looking forward to play this soon!
By checking the Video, this time also has a level design. I have a request about it.

Please have a feature which players can provide some Levels into 1 data, not providing by each level. Most of lode runner, we can edit level and provide each Level. I think it is too normal.
I wanna play some levels as a set.

And this is an just I talk to my self.
To build/edit level, player should buy or pay. However people just play edit level LodeRunner can play it free. (It is also good having a limitation like max 10 edits levels.) Then people start to have a curious about Lode-Runner. I think young players don't know much about this game.
And if this title has a good Adventure mode, people will purchse this game. How about it :-)

Anyway, again I really love this game from Japan.

Best,

日本ではロードランナーと言えばファミコン版・ディスクシステム版が有名であるが
SteamといえばPCがターゲットプラットフォームの1つであり、PC版と言えば
シエラパイオニアの「レジェンドリターンズ」及び「マッドモンクの逆襲」であろう。

ファミコン版に比べ美麗さが格段に増した画像、特色ある地下帝国を彩るBGM、
ジェイクとウェスによる2人同時プレイの実現、感動のエンディング、
どれを取っても未だ色褪せることのない最高傑作である。

今回は初期作版のリブートタイトルであるように読み取れるが、
ロードランナーにスポットを当てて頂けたことについて深く感謝したい。

願わくば伝説を再びリブートして頂きたい。

The game looks very interesting, and it is one i vagely remember playing on the old BBC Micro and C64 as a kid. The graphics look great and i love old retro games, so this is a highly potential buy for me should it get released.

Also Jim F***ing Sterling Son sent me! Thank God for him!

I remember playing the original as a kid and never knew the name of it until I saw Jim Sterling post a video about this. Really looking forward to the games' release. Thanks guys!

We got some comments around orthographic (2D) camera, so we will add this to our future wish list.

2Dカメラは将来のアップデートで検討したいと思います。アーケード版の曲について今コメント出来ることは何もありませんが、どれも良い曲ですね。
wizzmilk Apr 13 @ 7:38pm 
アーケード版の曲(1〜4)と3Dっぽい絵を完全に切るモードが是非とも欲しいです。
曲は難しいかもしれませんが、完全に2Dのモードを是非お願いします。現在のサンプルを
見ると、若干3D風の光具合がありますのでこれすらも切るモード是非お願いします。

Local co-op multiplayer is something we definitely want to consider in the future updates, but not in day one. We have many items in our future wish list, and we hope to evolve Lode Runner Legacy even after the release together with the community. We need to get Greenlit first :)
