We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

Based on the book series of the same name, Runelords is an RPG that was planned by Kemco around the same time as the Game Boy Color Daikatana. A June 2000 IGN article noted that "Kemco has been working on Runelords (and Daikatana) forever" and that "while Daikatana really impressed us, Runelords was a whole other story".

The final ROM of the game, along with the unreleased US version of Daikatana, were discovered among the September 2020 lot check leaks.
