Hey everyone, we just launched the final round of our Prototype Showdown, where our community gets to choose our next game project.
If you've participated in earlier rounds, the two games will be familiar to you. However, we've added some additional info for each game. Notably, if Taxi Copter wins, it will likely be on Steam Early Access as early as this fall, with frequent updates after that.
If "A Traveler" wins, it will launch in 2019-ish.
We've also added a bit more info about where we see each of these games going, which you can access on the "More Info/Send Feedback" link for each game.
Hey all, we just wanted to let you know that we just released version 1.531, which includes support for Steam VR! It's designed as a seated experience, and for now uses the same keyboard/gamepad input as the 2D version. We hope you enjoy it!
(Note: VR support is currently windows only. We will look into the possibility of supporting Linux in the future.)
Hi folks. We'd like to let you know that we just released a new build. This build includes some new daily portal worlds (thanks for the feedback on that!) As well as some misc. bug fixes and optimizations.
- You may notice some odd connectivity issues today and tomorrow, as the backend server for the game's leaderboards/daily updates has changed.
- We had to upgrade the underlying game engine with this update. This usually means the game runs smoother for folks, and often fixes some rare bugs; but it might also break compatibility on some much older PCs or OSs. If this is you, let us know and we'll try to help.
- Some people have reported a score exploit, as well as some suspicously high scores on the leaderboard. We've fixed the exploit in this build, and we'll be resetting the all-time and daily leaderboards tomorrow.
Also: Thanks for those who have (very) patiently been waiting for the promised VR update. This game engine upgrade was an important step towards that, and we hope to have a build ready for you very soon.
We have been working on an Android version of Race the Sun, and it will be ready for release on Google Play soon. We are still working out the details of a release date and exactly what devices we can support, but we know that the game will have the same features as the iOS version, including leaderboards, achievements, and a world that regenerates daily.
Android Beta Testers Wanted
We will be running a closed beta for those who want to test the game early. You can sign up here if you would like to apply to be a beta tester.
Thanks to everyone who has requested an Android version — we are super pumped that we can finally make it happen.
