Human Head Wants to Make a Rune Sequel


Human Head Studios' Rune was released twelve years ago, but today it got its own Facebook page. That page comes with this message:

Quote:
We are considering a sequel to the cult hit classic Rune!

I liked it too. I played it on PC, but my friend had it on PS2 and we'd play deathmatch.

Rune was pretty fun. I still have it lying around somewhere to play with a buddy now and then.

Is it really considered a cult classic? I bought it when it came out, and liked the game. Still, it wasn't really a stand-out title for its time IMO.

Yes yes yes.
I played the living shit out of this game. Over and over.
The multiplayer was an insane amount of fun.

I still consider this to be one of best games ever made.

Isn't Human Head the company that did Prey? If so, give us Prey 2 first!

Seeing as how their current project is probably dead, I guess they'd love to be making pretty much anything right about now.

Rune was a very average game. For a sequel they'd really need to beef up the combat system, which was way too simplistic for my liking.

Just make it like Severance: Blade of Darkness, but with a Viking instead of a barbarian and I'll be happy.

Now here is a game that I could see making a sequel too. I loved the sword/shield block mechanic in Rune. If you timed it right, you were treated to a nice decapitation animation.

Wait, are we talking about the same Rune? The one I played was crap. That was possibly the first game where I felt cheated out of my $50 bucks. I couldn't believe that Prey and Rune came from the same studio.

"So our last game, which was very well received everytime we showed it off, was cancelled for some reason. Its predecessor took YEARS to make. Let's do a kickstarter and see if we can raise a million bucks with our track record of unreliability. What IPs do we have in the closet?"
"Blair Witch II."
"Well fuck my ass and call me a zoophiliac donkey, that ain't gonna work!"
"Dead Man's Hand?"
"Never heard of it, who made it?"
"We did."
"Shit."
"It was, sir."
"We must have at least one fondly-remembered IP!"
"Rune?"

Any game where I can chop of an enemies arm, pick it up and then beat them to death with their own arm has my vote. Or chop of their head and then throw it at their friends.

Throwing 2h axes for 1 shot kills was always a highlight. Some of the best 3rd person multiplayer ever.

This is a solid choice for kickstarter.

I remember when I was in retail and i went to e3, these guys (as part of gathering of developers) had pole dancers in schoolgirls outfits across the street from the show. Anyway I kind of idolized them, and wanted to get behind Rune in a big way, so I wanted to see the game. When I got to the booth, which was a camper bus, they were all "no we're too busy". I never really forgave em.

Thanks for letting me share.

I think I played that... once or twice... maybe. Im not sure it qualifies as a cult hit. Unless everyone but me was super excited about it and I somehow missed the boat.

A game without mainstream success is called a cult hit. That said, they are going to make a sequel to a game only a few people really liked, and in the process of making a sequel will probably change everything about what the few people who are actually excited about this liked.
