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.)
