RetroGOAT: Rune 1.0

Wizard takes a look at an old multiplayer favourite of his.

Rune is a hack 'n' slash melee action game developed by Humanhead Studios and released in 2001. It was very unique for its time and has since its release had a good multiplayer community. In 2012 it was re-released on Steam where it is now sold for €9.99. Games with similar fighting-systems include the Star Wars: Jedi Outcast series and Severance: Blade of Darkness.

The multiplayer community in Rune is divided between the classic Rune 1.0 and Rune: Halls of Valhalla, which was the stand-alone multiplayer version of the game. There are several differences between the gameplay of the multiplayer-modes in these games which have caused some to favour one over the other while some play both.

UPDATE: Rune has been re-released on for the generous price of $4.99! Check it out at
