What Is Rune?

With the announcement of RUNE GONE GOLD! just the other day some people still werent sure what the heck the game was about. GameSpot has an excellent interview with Tim Gerritsen of HumanHead (the developers) covering just that.

Rune is a game about melee combat in the age of the Vikings, in a world where reality is closer to what the Vikings believed it to be - a fantastic world of fantastic creatures where the gods held sway. You play a young Viking named Ragnar who is an Odinsblade - a defender of Odin and protector of his runestones on Midgard (Earth).
