Green Man Gaming has announced a new rhythm game in honor of Pride, and in particular the London Pride Parade. The new title, Pride Run has players in control of their own pride parade, and they must tap in rhythm to the beat to keep their parade on track and make sure that people will stick around to watch their parade. Featuring music from metal-disco fusion band, Hard Ton, Pride Run promises to offer a very colorful and energetic experience which will see you shooting off to different Pride events in cities all around the world.
This year’s pride celebrations have been very special for many, with this being the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which many believe started the gay rights movement. To help celebrate pride events around the world you will soon be able to run your own pride event from the comfort of your own home, complete with a one-on-one dance-off against some modern political figures. Pride Run has been developed in conjunction with Steam Factory, an Italian art team who have given the title its poppy, pixel-based visuals.
Green Man Gaming has also said that this marks only the first in their steps towards promoting LGBTQ+ rights. Head of Developer Relations, Jonny Merritt, said “As part of the launch of the game, Green Man Gaming is exploring ways of supporting LGBTQ+ rights charities who we feel are aligned with our inclusivity and diversity values. More exciting news to come.”.
Pride Run is expected to hit Steam at some point in Fall of 2019, you can get more information at Green Man Gaming’s Website and don’t forget to check out the trailer below.
