At its core, Race The Sun is an arcade-style infinite racer, set in a procedurally generated world with an increasing difficulty ramp and a "modern retro" look. The goal is to get the highest possible score by racing into the sunset, avoiding obstacles and enemies, and collecting speed boosts and other powerups to help you along the way. You fly a solar-powered craft, and the game ends at sundown, if you can make it that far!
