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."

Scream at the screen as you try to get ahead of your opponents with an arsenal of weapons and instigation. It is fun with friends and strangers alike. The editor gives it a lot of replay value and there is nothing like it! The violent-free game is a nice coffee-break game from the other stuff you fill your head with.

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.

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.

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

When i started playing first i was like "Why did i give 10 bucks for this?" after some hours i realised that i dont 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.

After spending an evening with this game, I had to:
  • wringle out my shirt
  • dry my tears of joy and/or sorrow
  • calm down the neighbors
  • gather scattered gamepad parts
  • find new friends

TL;DR: 10/10, would lose friends again.
