sublime looking 2d platformer they always run out now

If you were given a third arm, where would you put in on your body? On the side, or protruding straight out in front, making door opening far more efficient? As a lefty, having an additional arm underneath my weaker right helps balance things out. In They Always Run, out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, that third arm is used to bash more skulls in.

Aiden is the name of the three-armed bounty hunter, and with this extra appendage he is one of the best at his job. He doesn’t mind how he gets paid; money or valuable information, it is all worthwhile in his line of business.

In They Always Run, Aidan is caught in a chain of events that will uncover the truth about the galaxy he calls home. He will travel from the edges of his galaxy to the very centre, hitting every location in between too. His third arm might get him some funny looks, but when they see what he can do with it, they will look the other way.

But can we talk about that artwork for a moment too? They Always Run looks absolutely stunning with a hand-drawn look to it. Let us just hope the gameplay matches the beauty. But, coming from Alawar Entertainment, they of Beholder fame, hopes are remaining high.

They Always Run is out now on the Xbox Store priced at £16.74. Following rave reviews on PC, expectations are also high for the console release. Our review will let you know the truth soon, so stick around for that.

Game description

The galaxy’s inhabitants have been swamped by crime since the fall of the empire. Being able to find anyone, anywhere has become a highly prized skill. Aiden is a three-armed bounty hunter who must hunt down the most dangerous and elusive cutthroats in the galaxy. Some bounties are rewarded with money, others with valuable information that Aidan can use to find the people who set him on this path – all while getting embroiled in a galaxy-wide conspiracy. Having three arms lets you deal with more enemies at once and makes for a persuasive argument in any scuffle. Use your third arm to perform targeted attacks and throws, manipulate the environment, destroy obstacles, and wreck enemies. Hunt criminals across the fringes of the galaxy, the core worlds, and the ruins of long-gone civilizations. Upgrade your equipment, gain new abilities, grow stronger and destroy anything that stands in your way. Enjoy a complex story interwoven with high-octane gameplay and full of twists and turns that hit as hard as a bounty hunter’s third arm!
