Going Going Gone: Race The Sun Is Free For One Day

That there Race the Sun [official site] is a fine game. You skim across abstract landscapes in a solar-powered vehicle, trying desperately to outrun the impending sunset while not smashing into the odd architecture like a ruddy great fool. It's fast and exciting. I'd recommend you pay money for it, and I'll certainly recommend you snag it for free. To celebration the launch of an…

Don’t Race The Sun: Peaceful DLC Sunrise Released

Race the Sun [official site] is a fine game, an endless racer about a solar-powered flying machine racing desperately to stay ahead of the sunset on an alien planet. Developers Flippfly made Race the Sun even tougher with deathtraps galore in the recent Labyrinthia mode update earlier this year, and now they've done the opposite. Now available as paid DLC is Sunrise, a calm mode…

Race The PlayStation Exclusivity: Labyrinthia Mode Added

Forever chasing the sunset is a right lark in Race the Sun [official site], but how about a new deathtrap? Developers FippFly yesterday patched in the 'Labyrinthia' mode which had debuted on PlayThings last year, offering finite mazes full of twists, turns, and murder mechanisms. Each labyrinth is beatable with a definite end but a new one arrives every day, bringing fresh new ways to…

Race The Sun, Hyper Light Drifter, 30 More Greenlit

This week, on a very special episode of As The Greenlight Turns, social intrigue rules the spotlight. Remember Race The Sun? It's an excellent blink-and-you're-wall-pizza racer in its own right, but it also recently catapulted its way into prominence due to its trouble getting on Steam, abysmal initial sales, and a subsequent, er, sale its developers organized for others suffering from their same plight. Well, all that…

Have A Look At The Not On Steam Sale

Steam is so big that making some noise that you're not on there is actually a half-decent way to get your game noticed. That's the theory* of the Not On Steam Sale, at any rate. A group of indie developers with games not on Valve's gaming monolith, who've had to deal with people saying "I'll buy it on Steam", are having a sale. 40+ indies…

Feature: Presumably at the speed of light?

Impressions: Race The Sun

Oh no, the sun is dipping! That's not a problem, usually. It happens every day and tells me when it's time to have a lovely sleep. But in Race The Sun, night falling is death. You're flying across the strange landscape, heading straight at the dipping fireball in a solar powered racing wing. Even shadows will suck the power out of your bird-like frame, so…

Don’t Let It Catch You: Race The Sun

Those unlucky enough to follow me on twitter would have a very hard time not already having heard of Kickstarted dodge-the-environment game Race The Sun, given the three weeks or so I spent constantly playing it and reporting high scores, particularly unfair crashes or general "THIS GAME IS SO GOOD HOLY MOLY"s. For those unaware, there's a trailer beneath, along with information on how to get…

Race The Sun Is “An Arcade-Style Infinite Racer”

Race The Sun is quite pretty. Like you. Unlike you, its free demo version has 375k plays on Kongregate. In it we race a paper-dart type ship across an infinite landscape. How far can you get? If you're anything like me, not very far. But the story does not end on that sad note, no. Because developers Flippfly are engaged in some kind of peculiar…
