Vroegtijdige toegang

Ontvang onmiddellijke toegang en begin met spelen; raak betrokken bij dit spel terwijl het zich ontwikkelt.

Opmerking: Deze game in vroegtijdige toegang is nog niet voltooid en kan mogelijk wel of niet veranderen. Als je niet staat te springen om deze game in de huidige staat te spelen, kun je beter afwachten hoe het spel zich verder ontwikkelt. Meer informatie

Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

Waarom vroegtijdige toegang?

“In Early Access we can see the community's favourite levels, features, characters, and their biggest concerns, then focus on those.
Would you like more Level Workshop support? More official weapons? A character workshop? Let us know!”

Hoelang blijft deze game ongeveer in vroegtijdige toegang?

“Until mid-2015”

Hoe gaat de volledige versie verschillen van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“The full version will have more content, less bugs, and will be free to play locally. Everyone who buys the game during Early Access will keep all functionality they have in the game.

The free version of SpeedRunners is available now on Steam! Search for SpeedRunners Party Mode!”

Wat is de huidige staat van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“Gameplay features are all in and set! Play online or local multiplayer, single-player, and check out 10,000 created levels in the user-level workshop!
We're improving network code, fleshing out the leagues and progression system, working on redesigning the UI, adding more playable characters, and a lot more!”

Zal de game anders geprijsd worden tijdens en na vroegtijdige toegang?

“The final game will cost more or less the same, and local multiplayer is out there officially for free.
We do intend to sell character skin packs.”

Hoe zijn jullie van plan de community te betrekken in het ontwikkelproces?

“We read EVERYTHING that comes in! Everyone in the office is active on the forums, and chats to fans in Steam messenger all the time. Your reviews and comments and messages come up in conversation every day.”

"SpeedRunners is Mario Kart on foot, basically. Race your friends and destroy them with powerups. Tons of fun but it's early access and a bit buggy."

Hi everyone!

We've got another update for you today, and it's a big one! r43 adds two new music tracks, a solo-run practice mode and has the main menu focusing on some cool community stuff! There's also a ton of gameplay, XP and editor improvements, so check out the full list below!

Release log for r43:

Overhauled the Main Menu with a focus on the Community:
* There's a dedicated 'Updates' box, with important information
* Added a 'featured content' box, where we highlight cool stuff, like youtube videos
* Added a dedicated box to the King of Speed tournament
* Animated the background a bit
* Level Select: the workshop list will show the level your opponent voted on, making it easier for you to vote on the same map, even if you are not subscribed to it

New Music!
* Added 2 new music tracks, played randomly
* They're 'work in progress', and will get a quality-upgrade later

Added a Practice Menu:
* Has an option to quickly set up match against bots
* Or, allows you to run any map all by yourself

Gameplay:
* Tweaked the camera movement, focusing more on the player in the lead
* New artwork for the Shockwave, also changed the functionality a bit
* The Shockwave should work a lot better and more consistent now
* Doing quick turns with the grappling hook is a bit more forgiving with regards to which buttons you press
* The golden hook-grab should feel a tiny bit more elastic now
* Added a little swing ceiling in Prototype2
* Improved some graphical feedback on gameplay events, like when you hook misses or is blocked
* If you shoot a golden hook into a box, the box will be destroyed
* Fixed a minor checkpoint issue in Casino
* Made lethal spikes/lasers look different from non-lethal ones
* Fireballs explode when they hit eachother
* Reduced Handicapped-frozen time from 1.5 to 1.0 seconds
* Superboost now also works when Frozen
* You can now only trigger Triggers (with a bomb or fireball) that have Switches connected to them
* Made Sherlock Bones and Doctor Smart fit the collision shape better.

Improved feedback in the XP System:
* The post-game screen is a lot quicker now,
* and better communicates how many points you scored and for what
* Added some in-game popups that tell you when you did a cool thing, like a Triple Freeze

Editor:
* Massive framerate improvements
* Improved the camera movement
* Press "I" to give yourself an item, during playtest
* Shows the HUD during playtest
* Disallowed moving box-selected Actors out of the levelBounds

Bugs:
* Fixed a bug that caused the game not to start up sometimes
* Fixed a bug where sometimes you would teleport upon landing
* Fixed a desync issue causing the sudden death explosions to appear at the start of a round
* Fixed some crashes and bugs in the editor, specifcally when switching themes
* Fixed a bug which caused the item-box in the HUD to be stuck in its animation sometimes
* Fixed a bug where your vote for a workshop map sometimes didnt register
* Restored functionality where a newly subscribed level automatically shows up in the level list
* The "Recently played with" steam list is now also filled if you are not a lobby host
* The sudden death start stinger is now treated as music in terms volume.

SpeedRunners SteamOS/Linux is in testing

Before you get excited about SpeedRunners listing a Linux/SteamOS build, please keep in mind it's just a test.

When you download the Linux build, it will give you the "Party Mode" demo -- the offline version of SpeedRunners designed for parties and conventions/showcases.

We are testing to see stability of that build, because it has much less dependencies (no online, no multiple controller setups, etc), and once we get the hang of it, we will proceed to port the full version to SteamOS.

Nonetheless a good first step!

I'm really loving the game so far, and at this price could already recommend it to anyone.

Positive:

-a lot of fun, and fairly original gameplay
-a lot of variety in characters, though this doesn't really affect gameplay (which I suppose is yet another good thing)
-the game seems quite polished in the sense that most things seem to work as intended, and there are a lot of things that make you go 'oh yeah, good idea' while playing (though, of course, I can't think of any now)
-multiplayer works rather well, though it can take a minute to find a game, which I'm guessing will improve as the player base grows
-ranked matches
-pretty cool community so far. Seen some rage quits, but no proper moaning/swearing as of now
-community made content (just maps as far as I can tell, but who knows)

Negave:

-the game occasionally crashes for me (haven't yet looked up whether more people have this, but I'm guessing they do). This doesn't happen frequently enough to be a major issue, as restarting and loading the game doesn't take much, but it still sucks when you happen to be in a ranked match or with a nice bunch of people
-the music gets rather repetitive, which isn't that big a deal. It would be nice if the music selection had some more variety at some point

All considered, I'd really recommend it to anyone who enjoys the idea of a side-scrolling racer (runner...) which had me actually laughing out loud at times.

Don't let your first impressions fool you! Despite its cartoony art style and Mario Kart-esque power-ups, this game has an insanely high skill ceiling and is very challenging at the higher levels. It takes quite some time to get the hang of, but when you do, it's one of the most fun and competetive indie games on Steam.
