In this 2D-illustrated running game for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, you control two characters at once to collect festival-essentials such as sunglasses and fanny packs, while dodging other festivalgoers like a good sport. Timing is crucial but tricky, as your characters run on slightly different tracks at a speed that constantly increases. But the most important thing about Bonnaroo is being positive. If you trip over a sleeping festivalgoer, you prevent him from getting a sunburn; and if a dancing crowd slows you down, that’s all cool because you just slow down to join the dance.

Best Casual Entertainment GameFestival Run simplifies a complicated concept into easy-to-pick-up, hard-to-master, single-button gameplay. Bonnaroo is a festival focused on a supportive social environment: buddy-system, high fives and being mindful. These were incorporated into the addictive gameplay in which you have to keep 2 buddies together as they run through the festival to get to their next stage. With just 1 button, different elements are introduced into each lane to create asynchronous tracks and reactions. One buddy might bounce off an inflatable dolphin, while the other pops the parasol for a festival-goer who's been enjoying the sun a little too much. The mantra of the festival has been worked into an energetic yet approachable game.
