Ragdoll Runners is a physics-based Track & Field game where you control independently the two legs of an athlete to compete in 8 events of different types: sprint, long jump, triple jump, hurdles.

You control your athlete principally with two keys: one key per leg. Therefore, the gameplay is not based on button mashing like in most other athletics games: it's all about good timing.
(A third key allows to lean forward on certain occasions: to finish a sprint, a jump, or to jump over a hurdle.)

  • Solo: compete against increasingly strong opponents and become a champion in each event.
  • Splitscreen: play against 3 friends on the same computer.
  • Online
    • Confront the world record and your friends' records.
    • Challenge mode: compete against increasingly strong records from the leaderboards and become a concurrent for other players.
    • Daily Contest : experience the stress of competition with a limited number of attempts each day. Do your best in each event to score the most points in the Octathlon.

Your purchase inludes a Steam key for Windows. If you prefer to buy the game on Steam, go to my Steam page. (But please note: I receive a smaller percentage of money from purchases on Steam compared to itch.io, so I always prefer that you purchase on itch.io, then claim a Steam key to get it there.)

Please help me, how to solve this problem? I deleted the steam and downloaded it again. I don't know how to get it because my computer technology is very poor. People who want to see can reply a little because my computer technology is very bad. If you have time, challenge the game to the daily challenge, my name in the game is China on.1.

The two hurdles broke the world record and I was so happy.110m hurdle I am the only person in the world who uses less than 11 seconds! !

3.25 on 30m.

My record is 3.23 seconds.What is the name of your game?...

Hey sman! i was scrolling through the sands of the internet and found that you still can make a mac version with a software which allows you to release it for all selected platforms

(1 edit)

yes but 

  • there are always specific problems in each platform which take time to solve
  • I used specific code for windows to make some part of the game that would need to be completely rewritten for Mac and I really don't have time for that. I prefer to concentrate on the iOS/Android version (release before the end of 2018!!)

Oh, well atleast thank you for pointing out the problems!

I want to know what is the difference between Android and Windows?

I'll try on my computer with Windows

Ok I got it now :) Plus, awesome game sman!

Great!

I bought it but didnt give me the stuff\

I didnt get multiplayer and the rest of the solo levels

How did you launch it?

With Chrome OS

It makes sense then. It's a game for Windows only :)

WORST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

love this game

I was just wondering when the mobile version will come out, like almost exactly when.

Almost exactly when it's done :D

Before the end of 2018.

Hey sman, i beat 10m and 30m but i cant get the game, what do i do now? https://imgur.com/a/eV7QY

Nice! Now wait several months for the mobile version :)

OH.

My game says:

What do you do to obtain this crash?

What version are you using? Steam or non-Steam?

(1 edit)

Steam and also this crash is obtained when I start any race APART from the tutorial which runs fine.

I think I fixed it... I had to create a new Ragdoll Runners Profile and it worked with that but as soon as Ichanged it to my normal account it crashed again.

Oh strange... Do you have special characters in your username?

sorry I didn’t reply for ages, but no I didn’t my name was ‘defusables’ (without the quotation marks)

Hey, sman, i was wondering and can you give me any tips on to run faster? cause i've beaten all the 10m races but i need to beat 30m, so i was wondering if you could give any tips? or Maybe a video?

Hard to explain with words. On the Steam version of the game, you can watch the replay of anybody. A good way to learn :)

Well, but the problem is i have a mac and i said that before but i was thinking like a helpful tip video maybe showing strategies and where to do things?

No I don't know any video of that type :(
 And don't have discord.

Well thank you for looking and trust me i have looked too but im starting to get worse but im still practicing 

And i was wondering if you could get discord, we could talk faster :)

yes but i dont have the steam version and i cant find any replays of like world records or even like 5 replays and you would have to know the sequence of how long to hold the keys and what time to press them

I saw it now

how to purchase ragdoll runners?

You don't see the "Buy now" button?

sman can i have a refund so that i can get the steam version PLEASE???

If you bought the game on itch.io, you can play to the Steam version. Your purchase inludes a Steam key for Windows.

Will you ever make the game free?

Yes, when I'm rich. So, it's not for tomorrow :)

(1 edit) (+1)

Lol, So will you ever make it mac compatible?


Plus, How rich?

(1 edit)
