PAX East Twitch Stage Showcase tomorrow

Hi everyone! We're celebrating the launch of SpeedRunners at PAX East in Boston, and tomorrow there's an upcoming Twitch Stage segment for SpeedRunners.


PurpleTurkey will be beating us on stage for a few minutes, and then will go online to play against other high rank opponents, talking us through his game.

If you're a high rank player in North America, please be online at 4pm ET tomorrow! It's your chance to showoff your trails in front of thousands of people watching the main PAX East Twitch Feed.

See you there!

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

Having to unlock ♥♥♥♥ (modifiers, levels, etc.) in a local game is beyond stupid. In multiplayer, I couldn't care less.
Didn't buy this game so an update would force me to unlock all the ♥♥♥♥ previously available. ♥♥♥♥ R40.

Well , i gotta say speedrunners it's a really great game , you can start it off by playing with friends i really recommad you startin' this way.But still after a while you're gonna meet players which are better than you and thats gonna make you say "Holy ♥♥♥♥ i wanna be fast as he is" then the game starts gettin' competitive , there are lots of mods , trails and character skin's that you can download or create your own.You should really try out this game cause it's just amazing.
The only con about this game is , it ain't that populated , i wish youtubers would gave this game a chance because it deserves it! I only see from 200 to 500-600 players a day and that makes me sad cause on sale this game made up to 8000 players and it was just amazing.
Anyway give it a try it's amazing and btw it's gonna make you rage and ♥♥♥♥-off badly!
Have fun playin!

Its basically a 2D, Platforming Mario Kart but much less reliant on luck.

Extremely fun.

Bonus points for letting me swing my way everywhere, finally understanding what life is like for your average Peruvian monkey!

Fast-paced racing game unlike any of you have seen before. Instead of cars, the game is a symbolic representation of how some gamers blast through a game without fully enjoying it. However, you actually enjoy it in this game! You play as one of numerous speed-bent characters with Steam-exclusive editions such as TF2's Scout and Payday 2's Wolf in a thriving array of maps as you race against other players and/or bots to eliminate your competitiors by getting them off of the screen while staying in the lead. There are numerous items and gameplay mechanics that can help you achieve that, such as a grappling hook, C4s, homing missles, freeze rays, wall-jumping, fireballs and more! The story is told through unlockable comics and each character has its own purpose in the game as well as multiple skins to stand out in the crowd. The game has a multiplayer mode, ranked mode, and allows you to easily play with your friends. The game is purely skill-based and while you can spend real-money, you can only acquire cosmetic speed trails that have no effect on your character's performance. If you are looking for a way to pass-time in a thrilling yet entertaining way, this is the game for you!

Awesome. I bought this game during the Steam Summer-Sale and was really excited having seen YouTubers playing it. That said, it is not worth the regular price because:
A: VERY limited story-mode
B: Like ZERO DLCs
C: Community is somewhat small so it can take forever to get put in a game
D: Because of sed reason (^), you have newer players stuck in online matches with players 10x as good
Again, I love the game and it's fun and easy to learn—But it could benefit from a lower price and more DLCs

This game is amazing. The soundtrack fits perfectly with the intensity of the game, gaining rank points is satisfying, it has great replayability, and the characters are all memorable. The more you learn the mechanics of the game the more fun it is to play.

Oh boy
Where do I even begin with this multiplayer masterpiece

Well, maybe masterpiece is going a little too far
But, it still is an extremely amazing game that is definitely worth the price tag
If you love competitive games, or you're a completionist, I suggest you check this game out
There's tons of competitive play and a ton of content to unlock
You don't even have to be competitive really either, you can also enjoy the game casually
So, I suggest this game highly to anyone looking for some fun multiplayer games with either friends or just online
