Running With Scissors: Pre-Season is a strategic racing game that mixes fantasy with the truly bizarre, as players must madly dash, jump, and fly to the finish whilst avoiding atypical obstacles like giant aliens, kittens, tsunamis and meteor showers.
The controls are heavily reliant on a combination of fast reflexes and quick thinking which will take a little practice, but the first level plays out like a tutorial and will show you how to make your character dash, jump, fly and throw obstacles which will help you get the hang of it. There are also currently two game modes available, quick race and championship.
A cool feature of the game are the scratch n' win tickets at the end of each race which reward players with coins that they can spend on different outfits for their character which will not only change their appearance, but their capabilities as well.
The visuals for the game are exquisite, with a combination of flash animation and 3D graphics which have been rendered into 2D sprite sheets. The considerable attention to fine detail, such as the running with scissors in hand, also adds a nice touch to the game. The sound effects are quite amusing to listen to and the soundtrack ties in well with the “out of this universe” theme of the game.
Running With Scissors: Pre-Season although due for a few updates in the near future, is still a highly enjoyable game that will give both your fingers and mind a good work out and is suitable for players of any age group.

Introducing: "Running With Scissors: Pre-Season"
It's an action-strategy racing game, with an 9+ age target, and rpg collectible aspects for the characters equipment that changes their in-game graphics. Its theme is 'stranger and stranger', with obstacles like giant eyes on stalks that wink at you, tsunamis, kittens and meteor showers.
There are scratch n' win elements at the end of every race, a bunch of different outfits for your character that change your capabilities and affect the obstacles you encounter.
The graphics are a mix of flash based vector animation and 3d graphics rendered into a series of 2d sprite sheets, which allow an incredibly lush and vibrant visual experience at high enough frame rates to be visually seamless, on the target of 2nd gen iPod touch devices & iPhone 3G. The game is still fully functional on the 1st generation devices.
Sounds have been done in-house, and are a mix of funny voiceovers and environmental effects, with custom, high quality music.
For our initial release, we are targeting single player gameplay modes with advanced, non-cheating AI, and with leaderboards (coming soon).
