Hyper Gauntlet: The Legacy of Nozzlethrust III is a manic-paced arcade first person infinite runner influenced by Super Hexagon, BIT.TRIP Runner, Wipeout and Temple Run. Players control an invisible force in an abstract and minimalist arena, constantly hurtling forwards through gaps between blue and red obstacles. As obstacles are passed and the score increases, the player runs faster and faster. To help them in their never-ending race, the player can slow down time for a few seconds to dodge through a particularly tricky section. The game rewards you for making split-second decisions and never taking the easy way out. It is currently in Late Alpha stages, and will soon be entering Early Beta.
Hyper Gauntlet v1.0 will be released on March 1st on udellgames.com, itch.io, Desura and IndieGameStand for $5, with an early-bird sale price of $3.50 for the first week. Also check out the greenlight page and brand new trailer!

Hyper Gauntlet: Legacy of Nozzlethruster III v1.0 will launch in 14 days, on March 1st, 2014. Let’s have a look at the features you can expect from the launch release:
Not only do you get all that for the low, low price of $5 but if you buy within the first week, you’ll get an early bird special of $3.50!
It’s a beta! So you’ll get the chance to help shape the future of Hyper Gauntlet by suggesting features and complaining when I change things, which I'm sure you’ll enjoy. You’ll also be able to mock the fools who waited until the final release to buy when the price will be higher. When I put it like that, it kinda sounds like an investment, doesn't it?
Here’s what people who write professionally think of Hyper Gauntlet:
It’s the sort of thing you don’t stop playing until long after your day’s responsibilities have rotted or left you a series of very angry text messages. And then after that, it sits in the back of your skull, screaming to the forefront every time you blink, colorful squares rushing by behind your eyelids like midnight traffic.” - Nathan Grayson, Rock Paper Shotgun
"Give Hyper Gauntlet 10 seconds of your time, and if you’re not gripped by then, fair enough, move on with your life. Otherwise, welcome to the leaderboards!" - Chris Priestman, IndieStatik
"My evening’s been lost to this reflex-based tunnel-racer." - Julian Benson,PC Games N
First, wait until March 1st. Your desire to play Hyper Gauntlet right this very second is understandable, so if you want to play the free version 0.9 while you wait, go ahead.
Is it the 1st of March yet? Great! Then you should now be able to buy Hyper Gauntlet from any of the following sites (pending some verification / set up processes):
Steam is lovely, isn't it? It is! That's why I've decided to launch a Greenlight page for Hyper Gauntlet, but I need your help. If you go to my Greenlight page and click the "yes" button, Hyper Gauntlet will rocket up the rankings and with a bit of luck will be Greenlit before breakfast. And when it's Greenlit you'll be able to buy it from Steam or - if you've already bought it from somewhere else by then - you'll receive a key for the Steam version.
