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.

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

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

This is by far a must-buy. I love this game and still play it all the time. It is somewhat repetative but each lap is different. This is pretty much a big step up from mario cart. I know you must be thinking, "mario cart? How is this like mario cart", but it is very much like mario cart. its the same mechanics but instead of getting first place, you run until the other players go to slow and fall back off the screen. Its like Mario cart because you have to know shortcuts, the boosting mechanic is the exact same, and you get items the same way and they pretty much do the same thing. Its all put together though in a little bit more of an older age game than mario cart.
This game also has multiplayer. I find it even more fun when you play with friends with one exeption. Its not really too much fun when one person is WAY better than the other. But i find it the most fun while playing with friends.
Now i bought this at the summer sale when it was $3.00, but even at $15.00 I still think this game is by far worth it. Right now I have around 90 hours but im still hoping to get way more hours on this game. Hope this Helps!

Product received for free
This is a pretty fun game to play, especially when you are playing with friends. The chapters in the game get challenging when you move up the difficulty. Multiplayer is pretty fun as well although I would prefer playing with friends. If you need a game that you can play with your friends and have fun or possibly ruin friendships, I would recommend giving this game a go.

This game is fun but there is a catch....
It all started when my group of friends started playing this together. We thought it would be fun but it has brought us farther apart than we have ever been. I am currently down 3 monitors and 2 headsets. My friend is down a DX racer and a monitor and my olther friend is down nothing because he wins every single match and ruins everything for us. Good game if you visiting your friends with a bat after each session, but if not, do not buy it.

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

SpeedRunners is a fun racing game to play with friends,it has a great level system and funny powerups.The soundtrack is matching and the characters look very cute.Everything moves so fast which matches as it is a bright fast paced racing game.The game's obstacles are quite annoying yet needed as this game is also a platformer.

Funny Gameplay
Matching Soundtrack
Cute Characters
Fast Paced Everything


Conclusion:This game was better than my expectations,even in early access.Now it's just perfect.It's worth the price.

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!
