What the developers have to say:

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 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.

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

It’s hardly the next Dota but there’s a real competitive vibe once you get going against an equally skilled adversary. High recommend.

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.

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

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

It's an enjoyable game to play with your family and friends!
It's like Downtown Run or Mario Kart on foot.
Race your friends and destroy them with powerups.
Best thing is, you can play as Youtube Star such as, PewDiePie, CinnamonToastKen, Markiplier and more! (But you need to buy it)
A lot of fun but Early Access and it's a bit buggy. Can't wait for the full version release.
Go #TeamSpeedRunner #PewDiePie #CinnamonToastKen ! :D

This is a great game to play with friends in person or over voice chat. The short matches keep things fresh and the friendly competition keeps us all coming back to play.

Upsides:
Fastpaced
Easy to catch on
Great music
Great character lineup

Downsides:
Still buggy at times, accidentially clipping a wall, getting stuck on something, etc
Bad ranking. Game is supposed to choose players in a match based on nearby ranking, but a lot of the time you'll just end up as a beginner against advanced rank players, or an advanced rank versus entry rankers, ETC. This is very frustrating when you're expecting someone witha bout the same playtime hours as you.

Overall, still worth the buy. Especially during a sale.

A very fun game to play with friends,

I was entertained for hours playing this with my friends. It is a really fun competitive game, and its a good game that I like to play if I feel like taking a break from other games and stuff. The maps are fun and they have a big workshop community making mods.

Overall I rate 6/10
