Hi everyone! We're celebrating the launch of SpeedRunners at PAX East in Boston, and tomorrow there's an upcoming Twitch Stage segment for SpeedRunners.

If you're a high rank player in North America, please be online at 4pm ET tomorrow! It's your chance to showoff your trails in front of thousands of people watching the main PAX East Twitch Feed.

SpeedRunners is Out Now!



Check out this slick SpeedRunners Launch Trailer that Tom made

SpeedRunners is now officially out of Early Access. After hundreds of updates, several community uprisings (remember the whole Lethal Spikes and SpeedBoosting threads?), we are officially out. That's it. Version 1.0.

Here's what the final version of SpeedRunners has to offer:

Gif Editor & Exporter

A new feature in the Replays system is the ability to crop & export GIFs directly from within SpeedRunners, check it out!

Trails Shop & Editor

Yes, you can now create your own trails for SpeedRunners and have them be available in the Trails Shop. This is a curated shop (think just like Team Fortress 2) where users can submit their content to.

Mac & Linux

I am playing SpeedRunners on a Mac, you guys! This actually works.

Single Player Campaign

The brand new single player campaign takes you on a "Mario Kart Style" adventure, going through the multiplayer maps with specific story bits and challenges. The goal of the single player campaign is to ease players into the competitive online part of the game.

Twitch Betting

You can now setup twitch betting when livestreaming SpeedRunners and it's tied to the tinyBuild rewards program.

But wait, what does going out of Early Access mean?

It means that the core features of the game are finished. We will still update the game, and are fully committed to working with the community. The only difference is that the core development team will switch their focus to consoles.

A huge THANK YOU to the community!

A special, enormous, hug-worthy THANK YOU to everyone who have been with us during Early Access. It's been an insane journey and without you guys we wouldn't be here. The hundred-reply threads on the forums, the in-depth discussions, the King of Speeds, everything about SpeedRunners Early Access revolved around obsessively reading the forum and figuring out the best solutions.

Yes, everyone in Early Access is getting a special BETA trail which is available right now.

This week we are having a launch event at PAX East in Boston with PurpleTurkey showing off his skills. Within the coming weeks we will reveal post-launch plans which include more tournaments and prizes.

Huge hugs
- tinyBuild and DoubleDutch Teams

WTF HAPPENED?!

I have played this game for endless hours and showed support for it throughout it's run on early access and had tons of fun with it. But now it's fully released and it's been released in a terrible state. The early access versions were in a pretty good state when they were launched, so how, after like 2 years of being in EA, how can you mess up it's official launch.

There are tons of online issues that I have encountered in the final version, which a friend of mine complained about in the EA version and the devs did nothing to fix any of the issues he complained about. Servers randomly crashing, Cameras zooming inso u can't see what you're doing, all of those problems are still present in the full release.

In my opinion, this is still in Early access, because not all of the content is in the game, you've locked off unlockable trails that you claim are in Beta. That means that this should still be in early access if you're asking us to be your beta testers for trails you haven't officially launched.

When the game worked and when the game didn't crash on me randomly, I did have fun with the game, I want you to understand that and I hope that these issues are fixed in the future.

As the game currently stands in it's "fully released" version, I can't recommend it with the problems that are currently facing it. I really want this game to be a success and I fealt really sad when I saw all of these issues. I want to like this game but these glaring issues prevent me from doing so.
