The Runner2 Game Music Bundle (Game Music + Game)
February 27, 2013 Jamie Shiller Games

Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is the awesome sequel to BIT.TRIP’s Runner game.

I purchased the Runner2 bundle from Game Music Bundle. It included the video game music from Runner and Runner2. Also included was the Runner2 game for Steam. By this time the bundle is over, but you may find another great bundle over at Game Music Bundle.

I had a chance to play Runner2 last night. It’s the first game I’ve played through Steam. Steam worked pretty good on my MacBook Air, only a few hiccups. I was surprised to see how the Steam app makes your Mac a game console. In Big Screen Mode it seemed like an Xbox 360.

While Runner2 only has a few controls, Steam recommends using an Xbox 360 game controller. A third-party driver must be used to enable the Xbox 360 controller on a Mac. The driver is available from a site called Tattiebogle. With the driver you can use a wired Xbox 360 controller or a wireless one if you also have the Microsoft Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. The receiver costs about $10 or $12 on Amazon.

If I get any more Steam games I may dust off the old Xbox 360 controller.

Full disclosure: I’m an investor in re:discover, the company running Game Music Bundle.
