SpeedRunners is Out Now!



Check out this slick SpeedRunners Launch Trailer that Tom made

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWwUDenjkzs

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

A game that is one of those that when you get into it, you won't let go. Not atleast for a hundred hours :) This is THE game to play with your 3 friends, you can do it all locally or get some online players involved. It's up to you.

I got this game from a weekly humble bundle for a dollar. The best dollar I've ever spent.

I've shared many laughs and glorious kills/deaths with my friends on Skype while playing. It's very simple at a glance, but under the surface, there is a lot of strategy and skill. We have slowly been picking up on little techniques to squeak out even faster runs. Great game!

10/10 Would drop boxes on my friend's heads again.

I recommend this game fully.

It has a very positive competitive atmosphere, unlike say CS:GO's one. CS:GO-oops i went to the wrong bomb site :/ "omg you f***ing idiot" SpeedRunners-aww i missed the grapple point "i made that mistake so many times when i first started, maybe try playing this map in practice mode a few times and you will get the hang of it pretty quickly." these are both things that have been said to me when playing both of the games metioned above

I recommend downloading the demo first before buying just to make sure it suits your taste.

A message to the devs- please add more controller support. not everyone is able to use an xbox 360 controller to play and the controls are awkward as hell to use on the keyboard, i could see myself having so many more hours in this game if only my type of controller was natively supported rather than downloading very suspicious stuff on the internet that claim to emulate your controller into an xbox 360 one. i havent downloaded any of these fyi, i use x360ce but it looks like this game trys to stop you from using that application. probably an anti-cheat system but i honestly dont know as i have managed to make to so many other games work with it, even ones that have anti-cheat systems such as vac. (yes i tried playing CS:GO with a controller and i never will again)

Speedrunners can make you laugh or try to strangle your screen.

explodnation: it is a competitive game.

different game modes.
a lot of characters (unlocked leveling up)
super awesome "power-ups".
people rage quit and then you get XP (LOVE IT!!)

DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

SpeedRunners is a game developed by Double Dutch Games and published by tinyBuild Games, one of my favourite indie game publisher!

SpeedRunners is a 2D action running game where you can either race with bots or multiplayer and believe me that you will lose friends after a few matches. The game is extremely fun to play and the game is fun to learn after a while

However the game can get repetitive and boring after a while so it is recommended that you play this game in short bursts. The single player portion or story mode is pretty boring and basically teaches you how to play the game. However there is a tutorial level and practice mode so I don't know why they give you a story mode

The story is given to you through videos and comics and so it can get boring after a while. However SpeedRunners is a fun game to play with your friends and for people who don't have friends (like me), it is moderably fun to play

Also, if you purchase SpeedRunners, you will receive No Time To Explain: Remastered for free! (This can be a limited offer after this review is published, so sorry if you don't get the game for free!)

RECOMMENDED :)

SpeedRunners is one of the games that can be proud that it broke the early access curse and was fully released not too long ago.

SpeedRunners at least in my eyes is one of the most fun games I've played in recent memory. The thrill of being in first and the feeling that you can't be stopped by your opponents is just purely amazing and I think everyone needs to experience it.

In the story mode of SpeedRunners you play as Speedrunner and you try to become the best by overthrowing the other speedrunners.

But enough about the story, let's get into the gameplay:
The entire game is based on speed. You try to outrun all your opponents and the last one alive wins, win three times and you win the game.

Anything goes, you can use weapons,grapling hooks, explosives and all sorts of stuff. Some stuff can backfire on you so be careful on how you use the power ups.

The Graphics are awesome and I love the art style. Everything from animations, backgrounds and characters, everything looks amazing.

The soundtrack at first, I liked, but it get's tiresome really fast and I just really prefer to either mute the game and put on something else or just don't wear headphones.

The main campaign took me 1 hour to finish, and there is some replay value. You can go through the campaign more than a few times and unlock more stuff like maps and characters.

I didn't encounter any issues while running this game and I highly doubt anyone will too, so you are good to go.

Overall I don't have anything bad to say about SpeedRunners. It's an amazing game and I highly suggest you check it out and you will get sucked into it.

Pros:
+Great gameplay
+Outstanding Art Style
+Outstanding multiplayer

Cons:
-Incredibly short campaign

Final Rating:
9/10

This is one of those games you turn on, play a couple of matches then wake up behind a Mcdonald's counter with bodies lyring all over the floor and a firetruck crashed through the main window. a quick, hilariously fun game i promise you you'll not be dissapointed with this rage-generator.

Wasn't convincend when I first saw the game, but this is definitely one great game.

We play the 4 players on the same couch / same screen, and we take great pleasure in it.
The trail system is a nice addition to customize characters, and the gameplay does not get old.

Definitely recommend this one.

An Excellent Fast Paced Platformer!
The concept of this game is very simple to grasp, outrun your opponents off the screen and don't get eliminated by falling behind. However for such a simple concept this game has a fair bit of depth with many levels to play through. What's more is that there are many levels that have been created by the community that you can play through the steam workshop, and you can create your own level if you wish and submit it too. This is a great game for playing with friends, as it caters for a fun and casual experience if you wish, or as my group discovered hours into playing the game, a very quiet experience where everyones concentration levels are through the rooof trying to time each and every jump,slide, grapple, and powerup perfectly. There are also modifiers to the rules available so that you can choose what weapons are available in your game.

This game is a must buy as there are certainly many laughs to be had, and friendships to be destoyed (just like in mario kart) :D

This is another one of my favorite games of all time and I have been playing it since the xbox 360 days. Destroying your friends has never been more satisfying. Also has a friendly community, (not at all toxic) which is a nice change from LoL. With its' full release the game has never been in a better state and I love all the new features it has brought to the table. Would recommend this game to anyone even if this isn't near their taste of gaming. Also all of the workshop content that users make keeps the game very fresh because original maps can get old eventually. Personal rating has to be 9/10 for its' amount of fresh content, trail making, fair pricing, the amount of fun with friends, and replay-ability the game has. (Speedrunners 2, please?!?) Love the game guy!
