Rune is een van de nieuwste games van HumanHead Studios en is gebaseerd op de UT-technologie.

Voor zover we het spel hebben gezien moet er nog flink wat gesleuteld worden op technisch vlak, maar qua sfeer lijkt het allemaal best goed te komen.

In ieder geval..hier de nieuwe wallpaper.

2 dagen terug was er trouwens ook een interview met Ragnar, de ster van Rune. Loki, god of deception and mischief was the bane of the gods, a black sheep who tormented all the heavens with his persistent schemes for personal power. Asgard, the high heaven where the gods dwelt while determining the fates of man and beast was often filled with the howls of pain and anguish as god after god fell victim to one of Loki's plots. Having one day taken these malicious schemes against his Asgardian brethren too far for a final time, Loki, lord of lies, was imprisoned by Odin the All Father and his, Thor, the god of thunder:

Loki was chained to a bleak promontory hundreds of miles below the surface of the earth. A venomous snake of immense proportions was wound around the stalactites above him. From the mouth of this fearsome reptile dripped a steady supply of acidic venom. The torment was horrific. The steady drops would eat away the exiled god's midriff right down to the backbone. In turn, his immortal powers of healing would slowly re-issue the flesh, only to have it burned away again. The snake was unfailing, as were Loki's immortal healing powers.

And the excruciating agony for Loki was unending.

As Thor chained him to the rock, Odin All Father proclaimed that Loki would remain under the constant drip of the venom until the day of Ragnarok; when gods, men and giants would enter into a final battle and all reality as it existed would perish. Then, and only then, would Loki be freed from his torment.

In that distant climactic battle between the gods of heaven and the monsters who dwelt deep in the earth, it was assumed that Loki would fulfill his fate and take up sides against the Asgardians. Of course, Loki was the bane of fate, and he had other plans…

Misschien een beetje a la 13th Warrior? Daar lijkt het in ieder geval wel op.
