Runaway: a road adventure, released in Europe in 2003, injected adventure games with new life by becoming one the biggest hits of the year. Aware of the expectations a sequel to Brian & Gina's adventures would trigger a few years after the first release, Pendulo Studios has taken its time to develop and improve this new episode called The Dream of the Turtle.
With Runaway 2, Pendulo Studios will once again serve up a highly polished, detailed world. Without detracting from the cartoon adventure graphics that lend the game such charm, Pendulo has also brought in a whole host of technical improvements with changes to the game engine and the use of special effects. Characters benefit from real time depth and lighting effects; the settings are more lively and also feature dynamic lighting, atmospheric effects, real time camera changes and hundreds of animations.
Humour is naturally on the agenda in this new episode and it is crammed with references to cinema, cartoon and video games. Runaway 2 is a real comedy that goes all out crazy at times with great gags and way-out puzzles. Runaway 2 will also benefit from a quality original soundtrack.
The adventure is made up of 6 main chapters. Players can explore more than 100 different places in all four corners of the globe. There is a large number of tasty puzzles and scintillating enigmas of advancing difficulty levels for players to solve. But Pendulo Studio has also taken care that nobody will get stuck for too long in certain game passages: all that players have to do is open their eyes and ears for clues that emerge throughout and deploy the basic level of nous required for all adventure games.
