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!

Race The Sun will soon be available on Wii U. It has taken longer than we anticipated, but all is well. Stay tuned.

@znc6479 nothing to announce at the moment. that would be a pretty big project for our tiny team. do you use the editor on the PC version?

@69sleazer69 ah my bad. I think we've only rolled out the cockpit features to PC. let me find out if we have it on schedule to push to PSN.

@HughEdPaulCo if you can't repeat it, don't worry. might have been a very rare fluke.

@HughEdPaulCo if it's on iOS you can't send a log, but you can create a support ticket if it happens again & I'll forward to our programmer.
