Green Man Gaming’s publishing arm is pleased to confirm the launch date for Glitchrunners from UK indie dev team Torque Studios as 8 April 2016.

Listed by  Kotaku as one of the 51 British Games to look out for in 2016, Glitchrunners is a chaotic, five player local multiplayer experience like no other.

Glitchrunners is an asymmetric local multiplayer game that uses second-screen technology to create a chaotic and exciting experience. Up to four players, using a PC/Mac, run an action-packed side scrolling 3D gauntlet, contending with treacherous team mates, hair-raising hazards and a whole lot of explosions.

A final player takes on the role of the ‘Architect’ and uses a second screen to dynamically control the game environment itself. With the world at their fingertips, the Architect can collapse buildings, throw countless objects and unleash mind bending special powers in real time as they attempt to stop their friends.

Two keys with every purchase!
In order to use the cross platform capabilities in  Glitchrunners‘ Glitch Run mode, two keys of the game are required. Each purchase of the game will come with a second, ‘giftable’ copy to send to a friend. The first key is for up to 4 players to play on one screen, whilst the second key is for the ‘Architect’ to use on the second screen.

  • Glitch Run – Take control as the Glitchrunners after loot – or protect your prizes as the Architect and manipulate the environment on a second screen
  • Arena – Settle scores in Deathmatch, King of the Hill and Powercube multiplayer modes
  • Cross Platform Play – Play with your friends on PC or Mac, in a unique second screen experience
  • Steam Achievements
  • Full Controller support
