Grid Runners

This was my solo entry for PyWeek 18 (May 2014, theme: 8-bit). It got third place in the overall score.

The game was completely developed (including the graphics and sound) during one week.

This is also my May entry for my one game a month challenge.


There's a video of the first two stages.


The game requires at least OpenGL 2.0 and 960x720 resolution (windowed mode).

Please read the README.txt included in the package for further details.


Grid Runners is free software (as in freedom and also as in free beer) under GPL version 3 (or later).

The source code version requires Python 2.6 or later (tested with 2.7), AVBin (version 11 recommended) and optionally OpenAL.

Should work in Windows, Linux and Mac.


The Windows binary bundle should work without installing anything else, just uncompress the ZIP file and run GRUNNERS.EXE.

Mac OS X 10.6+

Python 2 should be already installed in your system. Uncompress the ZIP and run grunners.


Install the right package for your system (32 or 64 bit) and a "Grid Runners" icon will be added to your games section.
