Load Runner Legacy to be released on Steam
It’s high time we all get over the word “Retro”. Classic cars are retro, old movies are also retro. Games that were released during our adolescence aren’t really retro because we remember when they were current. Don’t you feel it’s making us feel far older than we should but the “R” word is being applied to Lode Runner Legacy and we’re here to tell you that a release date has been announced ready for its appearance on Steam.
Publisher Tozai Games has confirmed that Lode Runner Legacy is set to release on PC via Steam on the 13th of this month. The latest edition of the franchise is said to continue very much in the action packed vein of the series but with updated Voxel-style visuals and powerful editors which will allow the player to create their own Runners and items.
For those of you who aren’t quite old enough to remember the 1983 original, Lode Runner was created by Doug Smith back when he was a student at the University of Washington. The game was a massive hit at the time, and it also became inspirational for many others in the videogame industry.
This is a beloved classic and it’s always nice when something that’s truly loved is polished off and brought back into the limelight in all of its glory. This being said we think this is an experience we’ll be having on the 13th of July with the rest of you.
