Race the Sun is a minimalist flying/racing game, set in a barren world where you must literally race the sun, otherwise you’ll lose power and die. I tend to liken the game to experiences like the F-Zero series, in which you race at ludicrous speeds, often forgetting to blink.
The game was kickstarter funded and launched via the developers website back in August. It was also put up on Steam Greenlight, but thankfully has since been voted into the program. Developer Flippfly has confirmed that the game is coming sooner rather than later – it’s set for release on Steam this December 9th.
Race the Sun was consistently modified and tweaked to the community’s wishes throughout their Greenlight campaign, so the finished product will definitely be different from the original release.
