I've been looking around for a font to include in my game which supports rune characters, specifically this Unicode block.

All the sites I go to don't demonstrate what Unicode characters that font contains, so I cannot gauge their usefulness for me.

I've been using the Segoe UI Symbol font, but it is only available on Win 7 & 8, and as far as I can tell, costs far too much to redistribute as part of a game.

Anyone know where I can go to find a font with my requirements?

The fileformat.info page you linked to contains a link “Fonts that support this block”. The ones listed there with 100% support are—

    \$\begingroup\$ The latter begs the question if a game fulfills the definition of "document" or if including it in a game forces the whole game to be open-sourced under GNU GPL. I forwarded this question to Open Source Stackexchange. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Regarding the first, when you want to use it in a game, it might cost far more than €25. The license conditions read: "If your company is interested in licensing Everson Mono for bundling with your software, please get in touch with me directly." \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ The "Fonts that support this block" is the most useful part of this. I may be going with another font in that list called Cardo which has 90% support (and I believe supports all the characters I need). It also specifically mentions that one can sell "games and entertainment software" using the font, so I'm quite happy with this option. Thanks for the help! \$\endgroup\$
