Runaway is a typical oldschool adventure game. Its design resembles an immortal series of Monkey Island, and it even shares its pros, such as very nice, comic-like 2D graphics, modern interface, and first and foremost enthralling story. The protagonist is Brian, a graduate in physics. One day, he decides to leave his beloved home behind and continue his studying in Berkeley. However, his trip to the West Coast is quickly interrupted when he meets a beautiful woman by the name of Gina who, as it turns out, is involved in a deadly criminal affair. Some people want to obtain a mysterious crucifix that was given to her by her father before he died. Since then, the two are forced to flee the pursuit, at least until they can solve the mystery behind the aforementioned crucifix and the people who want it so badly. It is up to the players to find the answers.
