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.)

What do you do to obtain this crash?

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

(Edited 1 time)

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 :)

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 :)

(Edited 1 time)

Lol, So will you ever make it mac compatible?


Plus, How rich?

(Edited 1 time)

When I'm rich enough not to work.

(Edited 1 time)

The full version is only available on Windows :(
(because I don't have a Mac)

ok no prob :)

actually you still can make one with software which allows you to release it for all selected platforms

(Edited 1 time)

We here do really enjoy playing this game, although it is frustrating

Oh! What a great news! :)
Do you have any suggestion on how to better use your site for my game?
