PAX East Twitch Stage Showcase tomorrow

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.

See you there!

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

  • Use weapons like missiles, mines and grappling hooks to screw over your friends, and make new enemies!
  • Local and online multiplayer! Can you have 2 players on a couch against 2 other players on the internet? Yes of course!

Outrun your friends in a unique 'racing' game with endless possibilities (thanks to the level editor).

To start off, the visual design of this game is absolutely fantastic- inspired by typical comic book designs and streamlined character spritework. The sound effects and overall sound design is quite nice and really fitting as well. Even though the game uses the same music while racing for the most part, they've somehow managed to make sure that it never really gets old or in the way.

The concept is simple: Run so fast that your friends get ripped into the void and explode.

With an assortment of power ups, tons of both great developer AND workshop made levels- there's almost no end to how much you can play this. Speaking of which, the level editor is great in this game and anyone interested in levels creators should take a crack at this one.

Sometimes you manage this perfect streak of constant speed, from boosters, items, slopes, and grappling (oh yes, the grappling), and it's surprising how satisfying it is to do so. Meanwhile you scream at the top of your lungs SPEEEEEEEEEEEED as your friends get torn apart by the edge of the world eating them alive.

Tons of characters with different colour palettes to choose from so that you can pick your favourite appearance, none of which affect any parameters so there's no concern of character imbalance.

If you're looking for a lighthearted racer and have some friends (preferrably around your same skill level because it DOES matter), this is a must-buy. It's on sale pretty frequently and it's generally pretty cheap too.

I really like the competitiveness of this game but it's also a very fun game to play with friends.

What I would like is being able to play quick games/ranked with friends, right now im only able to play customs.

This game is absolutely stellar.

The game's strong point is the online multiplayer where you battle it out in what can best be described as a amalgymation of MarioKart, Sonic, and Smash Bros. This is an excellent party game if you have friends over.

The mechanics seem simple at first, but as you play through the game you'll realize that they are all intertwined in such a way that you can play in ways unimaginable to your newbie self. You constantly encounter people who have mastered aspects of the game that you weren't even aware of. There is virtually no limit to how good you can get. The gameplay is a nonstop adrenaline rush as you vie to dominate the poor saps (or the no-lifer!) who got matched with you.

Knowing what I know now, I would gladly pay 10x the price for access to this experience. Very entertaining, very addictive. I foresee this game being a part of my cycle for decades to come. 13/10

Well my rank is Diamond League and im 2nd player on worldwide...But afterall i can say if you have "fast fingers" and "good memory"(those are important to get better quickly), i recommend this game for you.It will probably very fun for you.The community maybe in silent for now.But i cant say its bad.Also items are not %100 RNG ,when you get pro ,you will get this.
Disadvantages :
  • When you join to other continents player lobby's this game becomes almost unplayable for you... above than 200 ping is pretty grind on this game.
  • And you may keep searching for a lobby like 10-15 minutes but if u'r rank is below than bronze you dont wait that much.(if its stuck just reset the steam)
  • Kind of mechanic bugs are here(but devs will solve them in time, i think)
    Community 8/10
    Gameplay 9.5/10
    with friends 9/10
    Alone 7/10
    Drug 10/10
    Connection with other players 5/10
    Trolls/smurfs: a little
    Hackers: non

pls no golden hook

Hey, this is pretty good. If you're a casual player, it's great: up to 4 guys playing together, grappling, sliding, and doing double jumps through the level to try and outrun your compadres. Along with this, some super random xd powerups make the whole thing that much more enjoyable.

If you're a non-casual (thank god), it's more than great: It's outstanding in the sense that every offensive powerup has it's own way to be avoided, how you can slide near players to knock them over giving you a slight advantage, and how mind-games with the golden hooks are way more interesting than the actual ways for you to use them. It's...almost competitive. It's accesible, and races can theoratically go on for litearly forever, but there are so many nuisances for you to learn that there's actually a pretty convienent skill curve. It's minor, and even some casual players might get lucky, or even out-plan you, but in the end---that's sort of what this game is. It's a fun fest, and a ♥♥♥♥ fest. It's a video game.

It's for going, "Hey, you wanna talk about something? Wanna do it over speedrunners?" And then you zone out to the game, somehow doing better than when you were fully focused, and have a blast since you're not bored anymore, and you have a background task to work with. It's just captivating enough, with a nice sense of humor and imagery, and overall comes in a package which feels like a nice, satisfying experience where you run around with your buddys. And did i mention a level editor?

Just, for the love of god, someone explain to me why Nick always gets the golden hooks and I always get the ♥♥♥♥ing boxes.

Got this game as a gift, something i just played casually, then i ended up getting pretty addicted to it. Learning all the cool way to get around the map, theres always something to learn. 200+ hours in and i always find myself playing atleast 3-4 hours of speedrunners. Great game.

Smart, fast, and cheap: Ideally the perfect game. SpeedRunners is a game about reaction time, map knowledge, and general know-how. It rewards skill and doesn't punish the new player. Great to play with friends, and a great pickup during a sale.

Really fun 2D racing game, really fast paced and so satisfying when you get good at it, only problem is it's hard to find people in ranked matches who aren't a really high level.
