"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."

SS Royale Checkpoint Tutorial

We're going to launch a Level Editor competition soon, where you'll be able to create SpeedRunners levels and compete for a chance to get your creation included as an official level!

A recent SpeedRunners update introduced a more simplified checkpoint system, and today we sat down with Casper to find out exactly how it works. We used SS Royale as an example, since it's a very popular map, and has that trigger right in the middle.

You have time to perfect your level creation skills :)

Early Access Review
Not played a game in a LONG LONG time that offers tons of fun, replayability and humour, but when a friend gifted me this I had a feeling that this game was a MASTERPIECE... and I was right.

I played with two other friends and the experience was absolutely amazing, I was shocked on the Price mainly and how low it was for a game with such quality (It is ONLY in ALPHA too!). You become extremely focused and attached to the game, focusing on beating your opponents on a variety of maps, using powerups on each other, taking different routes and constantly gathering more skill each time you play and that is what I enjoyed the most about the game. Each time you play it, you feel like you are getting better, leading to you becoming attached to the game. It is also a great laugh with friends, using powerups on each other and just being the biggest troll ever. What amazed me was how easy and simple it is to create maps, also the game is workshop supported! Create it in-game, share it instantly to workshop for all of the community to see... it isn't as complicated as map-making when it comes to Source Games (Garry's Mod, Team Fortress, Counter Strike). There is also ranking if you feel confident enough in beating other players and being the absolute best speedrunner.

The only downside is that the Keyboard Controls are yuck... I have began using a Gamepad and find it easier. You can customise the controls of course but I just cannot find the right setup for me.


Just make sure you have friends to play it with!

SpeedRunners is one of the most fantastic small titles available on steam, as a multiplayer game it's one of the most fantastic around. The gameplay is extremely fun the overall concept is pretty diffrent and it has a good amount of gimmicks to practise and learn to get an upper hand. It's very fun and I haven't had so much fun since that first night playing with a group of friends. Recently announced is a level editor too which will also be a fantastic edition to an already great game. High recommend.

10/10 would grapple again

Speedrunners is probably one of the most addictive games out here on steam. I've seen alot of streams before I decided to buy this great, amusing/entertaining game title. First of, I've started with some of the singleplayer missions which, in my opinion, are not necessary to get into the real multiplayer gameplay.

Mutliplayer is fun, you can either do custom matches or hop in into ranked matches directly. I've played 80% of my gametime with friends in custom matches, beside normal maps we've tried maps from the workshop - some were good, some more like mehhhh. Anyways, if you've ever played this game, you won't stop playing it. I just stopped playing it because my friends got bored by me beating them :p

Speedrunners is often for sale, just come back regularly and check the price - I woudl recommend buying it for the normal price, but as a student I feel anyone else in the same situation where money is rare. Anyways, the game is worth the 10 bucks - Buy it, love it, get addicted to it.

Such an awesome game with friends. Don't have friends? Well still get this game, I don't have many works that can describe this game, soooooo.... Here's a recipe on how to make French Toast YAY!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup low-fat milk
8 slices toast sliced bread
1/3 cup maple syrup
4 eggs
Icing sugar

Method:

Step 1: Whisk eggs and milk in a bowl. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium. Dip a slice of bread into egg mixture to coat both sides. Cook for 1-2 mins each side, until golden. Repeat with remaining bread and egg mixture.

Step 2: Serve each person with two pieces of French toast, drizzled with maple syrup and dusted with icing sugar

Step 3: Buy Speedrunners and Play the game while eating

An unique game,that can be played both casually and competitively,with friends or with strangers,which provides endless fun! It also includes a workshop in which you can download different maps,when you get bored from the old ones.You have a variety of characters,including some DLC packs with some well known YouTubers if you're interested.Overall,for an early acces game it is a very fun and challenging game,which I gladly play and I will play in the future. Buy it!

It's a simple multiplayer fun game, no down-going game except with a little lack of in-game music, but that's all.
Pretty amazing game i give it a 10/10!

Urghhhh wtf? *hits keyboard* what is... arghhhhh fk**** sh**... srsly???? *hits keyboard more and grunts meanwhile* are u kidding me?!?!?! I don't even... *hits keyboard with the mouse* :-@%$# son of arghhhhhh *hysterical lough*

I completely recommend this (if you’re crazy and get it for a good price or if u really like hitting your innocent keyboard) - 8/10 Kittens (^._.^)ノ

Background:
I got this game in a Humble-Bundle-package - would have never bought it, since this is totally not my cup of kittens. Started it to get the Steamcards and was bored enough to try it meanwhile... and got hooked. Played through the whole single player-part and had a blast failing hard in multiplayer. Absolutely worth a try - also for people normally not into this kind of games (In that case get it when u find it for a really nice price).

The 2 missing Kittens are angry on the following points:
- no real Tutorial
- to long waiting for not rated matches
Hope they will fix this before release and throw in some catnip - so the 2 can come back.

SpeedRunners, it is a fast paced intense indie game that is in beta right now. It takes a little bit to get used to. It has great music, funny characters, and DLC to play as some of your favorite YouTubers! It is a great game to play with your friends, including a build feature to make your own maps to try out! I think the people at DoubleDutch are doing a very great job on this game! By the way, it ends friendships! I recommend this to anyone that likes competitive multiplayer and can handle the intensity this game holds. Hope you found this review helpful and I hope you enjoy playing SpeedRunners!

Early Access Review
this game is really fun multiplayer wise. best way I can describe it is like a 2D platforming race smash brothers. It's not very accurate I know, but it's basically like if you touch the edge of the screen in last place you die and if you touch the edge of the screen in first (while running the right way) you'll win the match. There's also items you pick up, kind of like mario kart I suppose, but actually dodgeable (for the most part)

There is a single player mode, but its really really meh and I don't think the game is meant for single player at all anyway so don't buy it unless you have friends to play with or don't mind randoms online. Even for early access I think the game is certainly worth it and really fun. There's lost of custom levels to mess with too and at least a good handful of them are decent and fun enough.

It's a pretty cool game and I haven't seen a concept like it before so I found it really interesting. Should try it out when you can.

ignore the crappy youtube dlc btw, it adds nothing but youtube "celebrities" characters that don't do anything. I don't know why you would want to play as some lame nerd over a communist super hero
