A new retro-styled PC game in the vein of hits such as Railroad Tycoon puts players in charge of running their own hit Pride parade.
Hitting Steam later this year, Pride Run charges people with keeping their own parade on track, tapping to the beat to keep the party going. Lose the beat, however, and you’ll find the crowds start to trail off and the parade loses its draw.
Featuring exclusive tracks from the disco-metal fusion that is Hard Ton, it’s up to you to ensure that the crowds build, Pride lives up to its name and we bring the whole world together!
Ivan Venturi, CEO & Game Director of developer IV Productions, said: “We’re a diverse development team, and many of us have been lucky enough to attend different Prides around the world
“We felt it was about time someone took the sheer energy, passion and extravagance that emanates from these celebrations of LGBTQ+ culture beyond attendees and out into the wider world.
“Players who successfully grow their parades will then be tasked with taking on a boss in a one-on-one dance duel.”
Jonny Merritt, Head of Developer Relations at Green Man Gaming Publishing, added: “Pride Run is a celebration of Pride events around the world,”
“The game focuses on rhythm, taking the beat that defines many a march and making it a foundation of play. We think the fun nature of what is definitely a light-hearted, celebratory take on the Pride movement will translate well with gamers across the globe.
“As part of the launch of the game, Green Man Gaming is exploring ways of supporting LGBTQ+ rights charities who we feel are aligned with our inclusivity and diversity values. More exciting news to come.”
