Story

The game takes place somewhere in the future where the majority of people are living in poverty under an oppressive government.
The only hope for a better life seems to be the Lethal Running Game Show where rich rewards are promised to the winners.

As a game show contestant, you must ward off never-ending attacks from merciless bounty hunters in the ruins of the city
and survive the rough conditions of a devastated wasteland. You’ll work hard to upgrade skills like gun handling and melee fighting,
but you’re not all brawn. You’ll also have to upgrade your engineering skills and to ensure survival, find clean water and cure diseases.
Last but not least, you must win over the game show audience and become its star. You made it! Or, did you?
Never forget that permadeath is always close at hand.

Cool!
What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

Any chance that you'll make this available on GOG as well?

That's basically possible - if GOG would be interested.

Cool.  How do we get them interested, or find out if they'd be interested?

All we got to do is submit the game. But before that, a playable alpha build must be available and there should be an existing game community. For the latter, everybody interested can help in spreading the word. No indie game today without viral marketing.  :)
