Neon laser jet-car racer Distance launches out of early access

Distance's jet-powered flying cars have finally landed, only slightly singed by lasers as the racer escapes early access today. Nearly six years after a successful Kickstarter and almost four in early access, developers Refract have launched version 1.0 of their deathtrap-filled obstacle course - a lethal neon world that pulses to the beat. Today's release includes two new story driven "Adventure" campaigns (including a return…

On The Horizon: Distance

Today in 'games that desperately need to be out I mean come on already you kickstarted it in 2012 for goodness' sake': Distance. I'm not quite sure how this one slipped under my "rad neon games" radar (I have a lot of radars) but it's probably for the best I wasn't waiting for it all this time. From Refract Studios, formed by the team behind…

Aeronautomobiles: Distance Has Flying Cars

I already knew that the cars in Distance could fly but it's a fact worth repeating. Keep in mind that the cars' doors flip into position and become wings when aerial navigation is required and the situation becomes even more appealing. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, the sequel-of-sorts to free techno racer Nitronic Rush is due in August of this year and the pre-alpha video…

The Bundle Singularity: The Free Bundle

It's not unusual to pay less than a quid for a game in this age of austerity but how often do you choose to give more when a bundle allows you to pick a price? The Free Bundle will not allow your generosity to corrupt its mission statement, which is to gather free games and then to offer them for free in a bundle called…

Distance Goes The Distance: Kickstarter Funded

Coo, another close one. According to Kickstarter, most games that succeed tend to receive around 150% of their target (while those that fail tend to be around 20%) - a fact that might be reassuring for some, but little comfort for the few who only just squeak past the line. Feelings must have been tense for Refract Studios, they behind Nitronic Rush follow-up, Distance. They've…

Parkour Racing In Final Stretch – Will It Go The: Distance?

When it comes to driving games, "parkour action" isn't a phrase I'd immediately associate with the genre. But that's what the Distance team - Refract Studios - are showing in their latest trailer. The Nitronic Rush devs have only a few days left on their Kickstarter, with a fifth of the money left to go, the latest video is part of their final push. And…

From A Nitronic Rush: Distance. Wait. That Didn’t Work.

Arcade racer Distance comes from a few of the folk who brought us Nitronic Rush, the Digipen driveygame that impressed so much. While some of the team have slunk off to AAA developers, a core understand the true value of purity, and are staying defiantly indie. (No, seriously, congrats to all who got jobs off the back of their stellar university efforts.) Under the name…

Cars Wot Go Pretty: Nitronic Rush

Oh FFS. Despite the game's own site saying it was announced yesterday, Jim somehow knew about this in August. I don't know about you, but I like shiny colours. The way they're all shiny. And all colourful. And when they move! My goodness me, it's all I can do to stare vacantly as the saliva wettens my bottom lip. So it is that I instantly…

Tron And On: Nitronic Rush

Students at DigiPen Institute of Technology have been pimping their game, Nitronic Rush, which is a videogame name if ever I heard one. ["NITRONIC RUSH!" - Voiceover Man.] Anyway, there's a video below, and it depicts what said students are calling "a survival driving game", which I think means you need to avoid getting chopped up by lasers or running into walls at a speed…
