IM: Running Man

published Wednesday, 7 July 2010, 13:00 by ZPSHicks

In Running Man we are once again pushing the boundaries of browser-gaming and at the same time sets a series of events in motion, that eventually will lead to the revelation of the back story of the Interstellar Marines trilogy.

Get ready to move, Candidate! 
We have already seen that you can handle yourself in a controlled training environment inside Shooting Range D aboard AIV Kitty Hawk 538, but now it is time to prove your worth in grueling combat training under the supervision of Drill Sergeant Barry.

Play "Interstellar Marines: Running Man" now!

Our latest playable slice from Interstellar Marines!

A select group of Elites!
The training takes place two kilometers below ground deep inside a secret military facility. Here you'll face an onslaught of challenging Combat Training Robot in a range of different training environments. If you succeed you'll be one step closer to becoming a part of the elite battalion of Interstellar Marines secretly being established as first line of defense against other sentient species.

"Running Man" - Release Trailer
20Mbit WMV 720p Video available in Briefing Room Our "Running Man" release trailer which tributes the old Project IM teaser released back in 2005!

Whats new?
As usual we made a bunch of improvements to the game since our last release Bullseye. The biggest of course being free movement and storyline, but we have also added caching, so you don’t need to download Running Man every time you want to play it.

Other notable features:

  • AI-controlled combat robots
  • Cool ragdoll effects
  • Absolute immersion (You have your body in the world)
  • Realtime shadows on the ‘Fantastic’ quality settings
  • Realistic and dynamic Reverb sound system
  • Terri Brosius returns to reprise her role as the mighty ITO AI SARA.

Your feedback always matters
As you all know this game is being made with the support from you guys. We're constantly checking the forums for feedback on the releases, and to this date we have already made over 15 various additions and adjustments based solely on your feedback on the Running Man Alpha release.

One of the changes was to remove the stamina bar from the HUD because you felt it was to old school. Instead you now have to listen to your breathing to know when you are getting exhausted. We also added a warning indicator so you know when a robots is about to take you down from behind. 

Keep giving us your Running Man feedback in the forum, so we can make the best game possible and please help us spread the word about the game by telling your friends about it.
 
Thanks for your support - Interstellar Marines would not be the same without you!

Enjoy!

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
The team at Zero Point Software

hello zero point i'd like to say that my experience with running man was all positive the free to play bot training portion was emersive and has left me wanting more, and more i will get, for the locked missions which require financial support to play which also goes into supporting this worthwhile project must be done thanks again and keep up the good work .

At first I was skeptical of the whole project. This appeared to me to be a gimmick of some sort but as time went on I became more interested. After jumping head long into this game, I have to say this is something really unique that zero point is creating. This has potential by far & away to be one of best first person shooters I have ever played. This is something to keep an eye on.


Great job guys.

this is good, when unity 3 comes out could you please make these slices on ps3, and the full game, i would love to have the full game as a psn game, it would get you more money to support creating this game if you made each slice a few dollars each, or you could make 1 download that costs about $15 and it contains all the available playable slices, and every-time you release a new one you can update the game.

I would love this to be on my ps3 because my laptop is very slow (GMA 950, i dont think i need to say anymore, saying that i have a GMA 950 tells you everything about my computer)

Also i think you should have a demo for each PSN game if you used my idea

Im not going to be a spearhead or frontliner but i will buy Interstellar Marines PLAYABLE SLICES & FULL GAME off of the PSN if you made it available

What would happen if you have no wow gold. Without gold, you can’t get can’t get your mount, you can’t get the mats

needed for your professions [url=http://www.storeingame.com/]WOW Gold[/url], you can’t get the best equipment or

armor. So [url=http://www.zyy.com/]Buy WOW Gold[/url], you quest and you grind and you loot and you sell, but you just

aren’t raking in the gold like you thought. You will see other players who seem to have the best of everything, armor,

weapons, enchantments [url=http://www.storeingame.com/Buy-Aion-Gold/]Aio
n Gold[/url], pets, mounts, WoW Guilds...and

you want them too.
Today [url=http://www.gobuyaiongold.com/]Aion Gold[/url], I tell you server secret tactics that I learned from WGT

online. They made me thousands of wow gold guilds with ease and make me the number one target of the gold sellers

hatred for releasing them.
