MechRunner is a high-octane endless action game that casts you as a powerful mode-changing mech.

Blast your way through decimated urban landscapes at incredible speeds while switching between robot and tank modes to rain punishment on endless waves of mechanical foes. MechRunner features exciting, non-stop action, stunning 3D visuals and a Hollywood-style soundtrack.

Spark Plug Games is excited to partner with veteran film industry concept artist Josh Nizzi (Avengers, Iron Man, Transformers) to bring the world of MechRunner to life.

"Josh has really created an amazing aesthetic that makes playing MechRunner a truly unique visual experience." says Ben Lichius, VP and Art Director at Spark Plug. “I think we have some of the most detailed, amazing looking mechs to ever appear in a video game.”

Spark Plug is also announcing the launch of a Kickstarter campaign (looking for $25,000) to help the studio add some final polish items in anticipation of the Summer launch.

Among the rewards offered by the team, backers will have an opportunity to play the game early, receive exclusive in-game content, the game’s soundtrack, t-shirts, and more, as well as limited edition collectable statues and even a chance to collaborate with the team to create new game content. The Kickstarter campaign is live and will run through May 16th, 2014.

MechRunner is feature complete.” said Spark Plug President John O’Neill. “But we realized that, with a little extra push here at the end, there’s a lot we could do to make playing MechRunner even more memorable for gamers and mech fans alike. We’re excited to engage with fans, get their feedback, and partner with them while we wrap things up. We’ve also got some fantastic backer rewards!”
