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!
Flippfly recently revealed a new gameplay trailer for "Race the Sun", the result of a two-week crunch amidst their struggling Kickstarter. The results can be seen here:
Additionally, they've revealed a poster design from SamCube, the artist behind the official Minecraft poster:
This poster and other rewards are available on the game's Kickstarter page, which is closing in on the last two days.

@JoshYTsui I like Unity for it's awesome editor, C# game coding, 100k+ developer community, and cross-platform publishing.

@AsherVo I guess in thinking about it, that really wouldn't work though!

@Totalbiscuit One critical difference is that the old-fashioned demos didn't ask you to gradually pay $100s to keep having fun.

@AsherVo Do tell!

@OTGGamer I think they're alright, but I think in 2 or 3 years we'll be seeing them touting another shiny new redesign :)
