Running Wild

A child gets carried away and runs a little too far ahead in the park. You play as the father, who runs after his kid and along the way needs to avoid all the obstacles his child sees. As an adult, you see all items as boring as possible... a trash can is just a trash can, but to a kid, a trash can houses a monster who strives to protect his shelter and extends his arm whenever a person comes nearby. If you fail to play along, your child will be disappointed in you and decrease in happiness. Your objective is to and catch up to your child and retain his happiness. The game illustrates the influence of imagination on children and shows the differences of perspective on adults. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Controls- Up key: Jump // Down key: Slide
