The gorgeously illustrated Sprinter stands as a work of art — and in this top-down action game by the UK’s Light Step Games, players immerse themselves in the heartbreaking tale of a family’s effort to escape tragedy by dashing through heavily-guarded hallways and sneaking past cameras as quickly as possible. Solo developer Karam Idris has created a game that is both touching and tough. Even the minimalist original music (composed by Idris) is special — subtly changing based on the player’s movements and choices. Players can explore the challenging six chapters of Sprinter on Steam. The game is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Sprinter has been covered in RealGameTribu, Gaming Cypher, Defunct Games, Game Refraction, Saving Content, Hooked Gamers, The Sebie, Altered Confusion, Video Game News, Confident Gamers, GameSpot, Rock Paper Shotgun, and Indie Game Magazine.
