Petal Runner is a coming-of-age story set in a cyberpunk-inspired, pixel-art-powered open world. Players join Cali and Kira as they explore the sun-soaked city of Sapphire Valley and train to become specialized motorcycle couriers known as Petal Runners. Once they’re certified, they’ll make deliveries, meet new friends, play minigames, and discover a wholesome slice-of-life story about growing up and letting go.


“Companionship with our pets is a special thing we want to capture in Petal Runner,” says Nano Park Studios programmer Danny Guo and pixel artist Brandon James Greer. “Our design philosophy is to modernize the feel of retro classics that inspire us, while incorporating mechanics and minigames that feel fresh within the RPG structure.

Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. today gave another glimpse into the compelling story and setting behind UNKNOWN 9: AWAKENING, the narrative-driven action-adventure game based on original IP created by Reflector Entertainment. Revealed on the Summer Game Fest livestream, a new trailer showcases protagonist Haroona, portrayed by renowned British actress Anya Chalotra, and her globe-trotting journey. Players take on the role of Haroona, a mysterious Quaestor born with the ability to draw power from another dimension, to avenge the death of her mentor and save humanity. UNKNOWN 9: AWAKENING is slated for release this Fall for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam®. For more information, visit

In the new trailer, players learn that Haroona has always relied on her beloved mentor Reika’s teaching to help her master abilities related to the Fold, a mysterious dimension that overlaps our own. Since Haroona was a child, Reika trained her on the intricacies of this other dimension, tutored her on the mysterious and unknown elements of the world, and often recounted tales of enigmatic immortal figures said to preside over all of humanity’s knowledge — the Unknown 9.

All her training came to an abrupt end the moment Vincent Lichter decided to take Reika’s life. As the leader of the Ascendants, Vincent believes the Unknown 9 have kept humanity from realizing its true potential for far too long. A former pupil of Reika’s, Vincent committed himself to freeing the world of their influence, ensuring humankind takes control of its own destiny, regardless of the consequences. His betrayal took too much from Haroona, so she must stop him. Can Haroona prevent humanity’s best-kept secrets from falling into the wrong hands?

UNKNOWN 9: AWAKENING is a third-person, narrative-driven, action-adventure game that follows the story of Haroona, a Quaestor born with the ability to venture into the Fold: a mysterious dimension that overlaps our own. On her quest for powerful hidden knowledge, she will learn to master her unique connection to the Fold, which allows her to channel its powers into our world. But such power does not go unnoticed. Haroona quickly becomes the target of the Ascendants, a splinter faction of a secret organisation known as the Leap Year Society, which wants to use the Fold to alter the course of human history.

UNKNOWN 9: AWAKENING will launch this fall for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam®. For more information on UNKNOWN 9: AWAKENING and other products

While drawing visual inspiration from the award-winning cinematography created for Denis Villeneuve’s masterpiece film series, Dune: Awakening will take place in an alternate timeline to that of the books and movies. Players will be met with a game that stays true to the beloved world of Dune while creating an opportunity to surprise players with a narrative that hinges on one key decision that reimagines the future of Arrakis.

In Dune: Awakening, Jessica Atreides never gave birth to Paul, instead choosing to obey the orders of the Bene Gesserit to have a daughter. She names her Ariste Atreides, who is a character players will meet in the game. This key decision causes a chain reaction that fundamentally changes the situation on Arrakis, leading ultimately to the survival of Duke Leto Atreides and a War of Assassins between the Harkonnens and the Atreides.

This is the Arrakis that players are dropped into in Dune: Awakening; one torn by war between two Great Houses, the Fremen missing after being hunted down, and at the center of it all: the spice that must flow.

Joel Bylos, Creative Director at Funcom, said, “It’s exciting and a bit of a relief to finally share the details of the alternative timeline in Dune: Awakening. It’s the pebble that starts a landslide, and it opens up a lot of really cool opportunities for players to explore when they arrive on Arrakis.”
Dune: Awakening is the upcoming Open World Survival MMO in which you can live your ultimate Dune fantasy. Craft, build, scavenge, and kill to rise from survival to domination of Arrakis. Explore and share the vast deserts with hundreds of other players, and learn to tell friend from foe.

More details about the alternate timeline will be revealed on 20 June in the Dune: Awakening Direct, Episode 2 livestream.
