Alright, everything seems to be working now! All existing customers should have a Steam key on their Flippfly Account page. If you haven't setup your account yet we have guides for doing that here:

Thanks for being so patient everyone! If you have trouble with anything feel free to make a ticket here: That will help us keep track of problems and be sure to get back to you.

Hey everyone, a quick update. Aaron was up most of the night dealing with a server error that kept Steam keys from getting to all of our existing players :( He got a bit of sleep and now he's back at it. Sorry for the delay - servers.. it's always the servers..

About the Linux version. We should have the Linux version up very soon, but we had a last-minute bug that blindsided us (related to Steam integration) so we decided to hold it back until we have a fix. Linux is a big priority for us. Thanks for understanding!

Alright, so the process of getting keys to existing users is underway, but it may take a while. We have some scripts that will be churning through our database and assigning keys - so they may not all arrive at the same time. Hopefully everyone will have their key by tomorrow.

Thanks again for being such patient, cool people!

Just waiting for the email with my Steam key :) so excited

Race the Sun is Live!

We unfortunately had to disable the Linux build due to a crashing bug (sorry Linux guys). We are working on that and will get the Linux version up as soon as we work out the bug.
freakyforest  [author] Dec 9, 2013 @ 5:32pm 
Hey all, We're not sure exacly how this all works being first-time Steam publishers. We thought 5pm was the time, but it seems not. Hoping to get official word about the release time from Valve. Thanks for understanding - we'll get there eventually :)

....time for bed :(
But see you folks tomorrow chasing the sun ;-))
Glaiceana Dec 9, 2013 @ 1:30pm 
1am for GMT, I'll keep waiting :)
freakyforest  [author] Dec 9, 2013 @ 1:20pm 
Hey folks, We have an unconfirmed release time of 5pm (Pacific Time, U.S.). We are hoping to get confirmation of that, but that's all we know right now :)

Also yes. Steam keys will be delivered via email to existing purchasers. Aaron is getting that all setup as we speak - so it shouldn't be long!
Karimu Dec 9, 2013 @ 12:46pm 
Aww i have to sleep :(
W3GW3IS3R Dec 9, 2013 @ 11:11am 
Only a time of hours :))
Will the key for flippfly purchares send via eMail?
freakyforest  [author] Dec 9, 2013 @ 7:20am 
Sorry Dr.Carlos the santa :( We are honored that you'd get up early for Race the Sun. I'll post a release time ASAP.
freakyforest  [author] Dec 9, 2013 @ 7:18am 
Hi All, Today is the day! We are working with Valve to get an exact time of release. I'll post a release time as soon as I've got it - thanks for your patience
Dr.Carlos Dec 9, 2013 @ 4:37am

Dr.Carlos Dec 4, 2013 @ 8:03pm 
when will it come out and how much will it cost?
Snail Dec 2, 2013 @ 4:50pm 
You should have a little pre Steam sale
Captain Frosty Nov 25, 2013 @ 5:29pm 
BOUGHT IT!! Amazing! Got the soundtrack too.
Captain Frosty Nov 22, 2013 @ 4:48pm 
Or maybe some tips on convincing my parents.
Captain Frosty Nov 22, 2013 @ 4:45pm 
I wish I could just have this game for free... but my parents don't let me buy games all the time. Perhaps a giveaway or another sale? My dad is quite fond of sales ;)

Great game anyway. Hope to see this game up with the other amazing indies. Ciao!!
Spooky ッ Nov 22, 2013 @ 3:27pm 
yea whens it comeing out for steam i can't wait!
Jasper Nov 20, 2013 @ 10:09am 
Any word yet on a date of release for steam?
Herc_n_friends Nov 16, 2013 @ 4:32pm 
Thank you very much for the clarification. I will head on over there now to get it. And it probably goes without saying, but thank you very much for offering this to your customers. It really means a lot, and I have the utmost respect for you. Thank you again.
freakyforest  [author] Nov 16, 2013 @ 8:31am 
Herc_n_friends No bother at all - I just need to be better at explaining things :)
We will be giving keys to all purchasers past and future. So if you buy on gog we will still give you a key.
Herc_n_friends Nov 15, 2013 @ 9:28pm 
Not to be a bother with the repeated possibly redundant questions, but if I bought the game on right now would you distribute a steam key, or is that option only available for previous buyers/supporters. I really like the game and want to play it. I will buy it either way, but would prefer steam for uniformity if that makes sense.
freakyforest  [author] Nov 13, 2013 @ 3:44pm 
Hey everyone! A note about Steam keys:
The plan is to give everyone who got the game on , our website, kickstarter, etc. a Steam key. We are pretty sure that the version with Steam integration will be the best Race the Sun experience yet - and we want everyone to get in on that!
Space Man Chains Nov 11, 2013 @ 8:45pm 
bought time this was greenlit
Demon_Dice Nov 9, 2013 @ 7:12pm 
Will those of us who bought from be getting Steam keys too?
freakyforest  [author] Nov 9, 2013 @ 1:56pm 
We have a "Flippfly Account" system right now that lets people who have bought the game create an account. Each player gets their own account page where we deliver backup copies of the game etc. - and that is where we will put the Steam keys.

If anyone's interested we did a little video where we talk about our plans for Steam version:

We are doing everything we can to get Steam integration done ASAP. We've even hired on some help to speed things up.
DJ Top Kat Nov 8, 2013 @ 7:47pm 
How will steam keys be given out to the people that have already bought it once it is on steam?
Concorde Nov 5, 2013 @ 12:19pm 
Valkyrie Nov 4, 2013 @ 10:11am 
Great game and well worth the price if you enjoy this type of game.
Zomsabra Oct 30, 2013 @ 12:39pm 
This game is awesome
Dr.Carlos Oct 29, 2013 @ 4:13pm 
when will it be on steam

freakyforest  [author] Oct 24, 2013 @ 11:17am 
Hey guys, sorry for my absence. We've been busy on adding features for the new update. We don't have a specific Steam release date, but it seems like it'll take about 4 weeks to get everything in there. Hopefully we don't run into too many bugs ;) We are definitely planning on achievements - and possibly trading cards. It would also be cool to have workshop support for all the user-created content.

Were you able to work out the login issue Born-To-Blast? I'd be happy to help get that fixed for you. Shoot me an email at: support[at] if you are still having trouble.
Bruder Schrankdienst Oct 21, 2013 @ 12:31pm 
When will it be released?
React Oct 20, 2013 @ 6:55am

Congratulations on your Greenlight - I think you guys deserve it!
🌎Drump Oct 19, 2013 @ 6:13am

Funday Oct 18, 2013 @ 8:25pm

Modzel Oct 18, 2013 @ 5:32am 
Good Game!
GreatPotential Oct 16, 2013 @ 5:06am 
When it comes out on steam it would be awesome if it had steam workshop support (as it has custom levels)
