Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows us to involve the community during development and try out completely new things with a large community of players”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until Q4 2014”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“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.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently experimenting with user created levels, improving network code, working on redesigning the UI, and more. There is a lot of work being done.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes and no. The local version of the game will be free, while online functionality will cost more or less similar. We intend to sell character skin packs which enable you to play online.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are losing sleep over every comment posted on the forum. Shall we make boxes lethal?”

"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."

I wonder what else is in store in the Halloween update??? I hope hotdogs.

Livestream tomorrow @ 4PM CET! I will wear a dumb costume!

We'll be livestreaming from the office and spoiling everything in the works tomorrow at 4PM CET on http://twitch.tv/tinybuild

Update log:
  • Added two new characters, Salem and SkullDuggery. They are part of #teamFalcon
  • simplified checkpoint system by getting rid of the need for most 'helper' checkpoints.
    For example, this was warehouse before:

    and this is after:

    (this should not break any existing custom maps)
  • potential fix for invisible players
  • hotdog
  • potential fix for huge position desync issues
  • potential fix for dodge issues
  • creepy crawlies
  • fixed some superchat issues
  • found super disturbing fanart on deviant, very NSFW and can't link to it
  • created a multiplayer issues feedback thread, use it to share your most pressing issues
  • more detailed loading texts
  • started watching The Flash, everyone thinks it's stupid except me :( convinced that writers of that show play SpeedRunners
  • Together with Gert-Jan trying to convince MatthijsV (our 3d animator) that The Strain is a good show. Making progress.
  • Discussing how to build up the world/lore more, bounced around the idea of a TV Show. Wish we could film it. Leaning towards comic books.

I love this game. Every game has me standing in victory or face palming in defeat. A great multiplayer game with great potential to destroy any friendships you dare throw at it. Every item you collect can rapidly turn the game around or backfire horribly and cost you. I've had a great deal of fun with this game and I cannot wait to play more.
For a more detailed look at the gameplay I have a video available at http://youtu.be/G6hoTWn4DYo?a.
If you see the video in it's first 48 hours please feel free to enter the contest for a chance at winning one of the 3 codes I currently have.
Highly recommended game!

Such a fantastic game, It's simplistic yet amazingly addicting. The game's costumed runners art style/theme is very nice, The game itself is just hectic fun, especially with 4 friends. It's still in beta and the dev's are still adding in a lot more content. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

It's a simple multiplayer fun game, no down-going game except with a little lack of in-game music, but that's all.

This game considering that it is still in beta testing is surprisingly good with a nice refreshing concept. There are still some issues with this game but the development team seems to be top notch releasing updates for it very frequently. For the price it is a good game that offers a nice relaxing change of pace. 10/10

Speedrunners is a very great game for competitive players or friends trying to have fun. Surprisingly, this game doesnt ruin as many friendships as you think. The gameplay is fun, and the youtuber packs are really cool. If you have any friends at all, play with them, seriously, it is awesome. Although this game is too buggy to give it a great score, i give it an 81/100

When I started playing first I was like "Why did I give 10 bucks for this?" after some hours I realised that I don't feel my fingers anymore.This game can drive you crazy sometimes but It is addictive and funny.I recommend you to buy it if you don't mind giving 10$ to a 2D rage multiplayer game.

I'm enjoying this game so far. As other reviews put it, it's like Mario Kart on foot, with the powerup-induced laughs and frustrations that brings. I think it's reasonably well paced, once you work your way up the brisk learning curve: deaths are annoying, but I almost never felt like it was unearned. Good twitch gameplay.

The aesthetic of the game is fun too. A good homage to lighter campy-style superhero cartoons, in visual and audio.

It's still in beta, so it can have its bugs from time to time, and they may tweak the balance at some point. But I had fun playing it, and you might too.

A game simply amazing at what it does, running, and with immense speed. It raised my competitive spirit to an all-time high with the ranked online mode, which encourages you to beat other players of same skill, attain points, and rank up! Playing with friends is a blast and mostly just hilarious. I have barely touched the time trial-esque singleplayer mode, though, only because the multiplayer is just so fun to play and so difficult to put down. Just don't slam your controller at the screen because of the professionals that'll surely beat you everytime.

10/10

Just a quick recommendation before this short review begins: play this with friends. Trust me. It's very fun.

SpeedRunners is a very fast-paced fun little game which keeps you on your toes. There are 10 characters you can pick from so far, including a pink unicorn, a Soviet spaceman and a scout from a certain game (I'm looking at you, TF2).

As it is still in early access, more characters and stages are likely to appear. And, if you can't wait long for new stages, build your own in the level editor. For $10, I'd say buying this would be worth the risk.

Want a game that you can play with friends that doesn't take that much thought into playing yet is stressful as hell when you and your friends are neck and neck in winning? SpeedRunners is your game! A simple concept: Beat the other players. How stressful can that be? Well, think of how the end of usual Mario Kart matches ended, and that's the feeling you get during SpeedRunners. It can be a very addicting experience and is a great party game with friends.
