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!

Indie developer Flipply has taken its Endless Racer game to Kickstarter. Race The Sun takes inspiration from "Star Fox" and games like "Temple Run", with a focus on speed and community features.

Posted by aaronflippo on Feb 5th, 2013

Flippfly is excited to announce that Race The Sun, our upcoming PC/Mac game, is now on Kickstarter.
Race The Sun could be described as a mashup of Temple Run and Star Fox - it's an arcade-style, endless racer with an emphasis on speed and a unique theme.

The game's alpha demo has already garnered a lot of attention on Kongregate, and from sites such as Rock, Paper Shotgun. Now we're looking for some help to get us over the finish line and add some deeper community-oriented features:

  • Mod tools, which will allow users to create and submit their own worlds from the in-game editor - which can be explored through world portals in the standard game mode.
  • Multiplayer - a unique form of coop multiplayer where players will share links with other users, allowing them to continue the game in a sort of asynchronous relay marathon.
