Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle (or Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle) is a point and click adventure game released by Péndulo Studios, S.L. in 2006. It's a sequel to Runaway: A Road Adventure.

The French version of the game was the first available for purchase, followed shortly by the German version, both published in fall 2006. Other versions like the original Spanish version and the English localizations were kept on hold until 2007 due to publishing issues, most notably with its homeland, Spain, where a special collector's edition was released in order to please fans.

Runaway 2 was first released on Microsoft Windows and then subsequently ported to the Nintendo DS in 2007 and Wii in 2009. The sequel and third installment of the series is Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate and was released on November 26, 2009.

Story[edit | edit source]

Brian Basco is on vacation in Hawaii with his girlfriend Gina, after the couple fell in love during their adventures in Runaway: A Road Adventure, the first game in this two-part adventure. Gina is excited about taking a flying boat trip to see the beautiful Tiki Falls on Mala Island, and Brian reticently agrees to the sightseeing excursion. Buxom Gina and now somewhat hip Brian hop on board a rickety old PBY Catalina run by Platypus Tours, but things take a turn for the worse, setting the couple on a whole new set of exotic adventures which are not actually finished during the game itself and are yet to be resolved in the third installment in the series.

Characters[edit | edit source]

Brian Basco, the only player-controlled character, is a doctoral candidate in Physics at Berkeley. Brian broke out of his nerdy shell after going through so many adventures and meeting so many interesting characters in Runaway: A Road Adventure. He will stop at nothing to save the woman he never thought he would have, Gina.

Gina Timmins is the stunningly attractive girl Brian almost ran over with his car and immediately fell in love with in Runaway 1. After all the help Brian gave her in the first Runaway, it's no surprise that they're now a couple on vacation together in lovely Hawaii.

Sushi Douglas is a hip multi-millionaire computer hacker who helps Brian out whenever he gets into a jam that requires technical assistance. Brian has a high IQ, but Sushi has the technological know-how to get Brian and his beloved Gina out of harm's way.

Lokelani is a hot and racy new character who spices things up while tending the bar on Luana Beach.

Camille is a secondary character based upon a real-life French Runaway 2 contest winner.[2]
