Dragon Runner is a space-based indie game that’s as deep and accessible as Mario

Beards, puppies, and dragons: What do these three things have in common? They’re all favorites of independent developer Cleaversoft, which is about to debut its first full-blown video game at the Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest) in Maryland today.

Dragon Runner (iOS, PC, Mac) is a runner-type game like Tiny Wings and Jetpack Joyride, and it has a smart vision for reinvigorating the genre. It’s also a big step up from the studio’s previous releases, BeardWars and PuppyWars, which are only available for iOS. Cleaversoft founder Rich Siegel thinks of them more as “navigatable mobile apps” than true “living, breathing” video games. (iPad, iPhone, PC)

I believe this is the type of...
''3rd party support'' Nintendo was talking about. Indie developers are the new innovative force behind game creativity.

I don't care if it's the runner game ever created, there's no way a Run and Jump game could be as deep as Mario.

That said, it does look quite nice.

But Mario IS a run-and-jump game! ;)
