SpeedRunners Tournaments at PAXWest

Ok, scrubs. I know there are good SpeedRunners players coming to PAXWest. I'm still a little bit upset about last year's "incident", when a 13 year old girl beat the whole team like it was nothing.

We're going to give away hundreds of hats, lanyards, and exclusive SpeedRunners T-Shirts at the event in a couple of weeks.

We'll be doing hourly tournaments at our booth. Stop, show your skills, prove you're not a scrub.

The booth is BRIGHT AS F*CK orange as usual. You'll find it. We'll be on the 4th floor next to the Indie Megabooth.

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

“Speedrunners is the Competitive Multiplayer Mario That Nintendo Should've Made”

This game is literally all I play now. SpeedRunners is a multiplayer racing game with up to four players where you choose and unlock all sorts of comical characters to play as. Racing on foot has never been this fun. Wait, it's never been fun... Well, this Makes it fun! You can play this game both casually with friends, and competitively with anyone. Learning the physics of this game and it's crazy tricks raises the skill ceiling so much higher! You can play ranked with people of your skill level, or jump into a quick match and have just as much fun grappling and kicking off walls to your leisure. There's even a single player story mode, with unlockable comic book chapters! Not to mention, this game's soundtrack and art style makes it feel all the more like you're inside a comic book! While many players buy this game on sale and give up early, this game is most definitely not dead, and seeing its success and competitive scene, won't ever die. This game is simple fun for absolutely anyone! Grapple far and hit slopes hard, runners! This game is amazing, and I'd recommend it for anyone who likes any sort of platformer game!

People told me before I bought it that this game is a Mario Kart in 2D.
They were totally right. I used to play a lot of Mario Kart Wii when I was younger and got better and better at it with each race I did.

SpeedRunners works a lot in the same way. You'll pass through the same levels over and over again, but you'll always find a new technique to go faster or trick your opponents.

With time, you'll get better and better, and after a few hundred hours, you'll be as skilled as the hundreds of other good players out there. All it takes is some practice.

I love this game. It's so fun and interesting, especially the multiplayer. :3

Ever since I tried the demo of this game I was hooked. No pun intended. I love the art style, the music, the speed. It's pretty intimidating at first but it gets easier the more you play. There is a tutorial and you can play against bots to get better. Pretty much everyone in the community that I've played against in MP were really cool and willing to "show me the ropes". This is a fantastic game and is super addictive. You've been warned lol. Get this game!

This game is definitely worth a buy. The community is small, and the devs dont really update the game either, but that doesnt mean this game is one to be overlooked. On top of its already challenging story mode, there are lots of ways to challenge yourself against bots, or other players, even both! So, if you're thinking about getting this, please do! See you out there SpeedRunner!

This game has really nice fast paced gameplay and something MANY games lack and that would be local multiplayer. This game is beyond fantastic when playing with friends to pass some time. I often play it on the train with a friend of mine to pass the two hours.

And even though this review so far seems positive, that only applies to the local MP and VERY few online matches.

This game is overflowing with cancerous smurfers who abuse every single glitch, bug to just steam roll you. When you come into this game you're a legitimate entry or beginner league. So are those idiots who need to compensate something and take it out on new players. All of them either make new accounts solely to buy the game or de-rank in ranked by just letting everyone beat you.

The end result is you (newbie) getting paired up with up to 3 pixel perfect virgins who do absolutely nothing but play the game from the looks of it. You'll know it when you see it for yourself.

But as I said at the start:
This game IS fun if you have friends (People you actually know IRL) to play with. I would have made this review positive but it's more likely that anyone who gets the game will go play a random game online than a game with their friends and that is why I can't recommend this game.

If you're looking for local MP, feel free to get it. (I honestly waited for a sale because I kind of knew what I was going into with the Online and I suggest you do too but it's your money.)

This game should have been FREE as it is almost as identical as the game app Free Run which is FREE app. I think of SpeedRunners as a copy and paste Free Run and it is not fun at all.

I was looking for a fun multiplayer game to derp around with my friends on, and this is a great one. I would rate 7/10 because it does lag quite often if youre internet isn't the best. But overall good game.
