r24: League System and Gif Competition

April 21st, 2014



Today SpeedRunners gets it's own League System with Ranked Matches. Now you can compete against opponents of your own level and rise in ranks as the Ultimate SpeedRunner.

Think you are the best SpeedRunner on the block? Prove it for the whole world to see! Compete with your friends and show them just how good you are.

  • Ranked matches lobby
  • Global and friends leaderboard
  • Daily first-match bonuses
  • Improved league-based match making

But that's not all! We have a GIF Competition!

I have shamelessly used Sexy Lexi's SpeedTrolls video to create the gifs below. We are announcing a GIF MAKING COMPETITION FOR SPEEDRUNNERS.






Record your footage, and post gifs into the official forum thread. You can use FRAPS to record footage and use any video editing tool to crop it/cut out. I use this free video to gif converter since it's free and fast.
  • Record your awesome moments in SpeedRunners
  • Convert them into gifs
  • Post them into the official thread
We will run this contest until May 7th, and the top5 gifs will get other tinyBuild-published games, such as No Time To Explain, Not The Robots, and Fearless Fantasy (top5 get all 3 keys). You can choose to get 3 SpeedRunners keys instead.

Update r23 - Singleplayer level editing

March 13th, 2014

I've just published a new update that allows you to create and share singleplayer levels, as well as multiplayer levels.

We're overwhelmed by the staggering amount of levels you guys have already made; if you keep going like this, we'll cross a thousand (!!) maps quite soon. A thousand! That's almost a hundred times more maps than we created ourselves!

Anyway, there are a lot of really cool maps out there already, but since there are so many new maps being created on a daily basis, discovery of quality content can become quite difficult. That's why, in this new build, we've also added a "most popular" list in the level select menu, so you can easily get in contact with hot new maps. You can even up/downvote those maps from within that same menu!

As always, enjoy these new updates!

The Good:

An excellent multiplayer experience that hearkens back to the lively days of Nintendo couch co-op playing Super Smash Bros. or Super Mario Kart
Fast and frantic racing-style gameplay that constantly sees twists and turns as far as who is in the lead
Outlandish and colorful characters and maps that really complement the ecclectic nature of the game
Power-ups are an absolute riot with constant changes to the way the player moves through the level
My personal favorite was the grappling hook, which grabs the closest player to you and throws him backwards, hilarity quickly ensuing
Controls are very tight and responsive, which is crucial in a platforming game of this nature
Animation and physics are spot-on and help convey the sense of motion and weight to the characters
Graphics are sharp and vibrant, which are very welcome in a 2D game
Maps are intricately made with what appears to be a pain-staking attention to detail
Turbo generators, swing-able ceiling tiles, lasers, and buzz-saws are a some of the well placed items in a map that can make or break your “speed run”
Current content on this “Early Access” title is more than enough to have a good time with your Steam friends, but the promise of more content updates just sweetens the pot on this game
Active developers that constantly respond and engage their audience in the development of the game
Primarily in the Steam Forums

The Bad:

Numerous bugs and glitches, which certainly supports the idea of it being a “Early Access” title
Some of the bugs encountered were along the lines of no textures loading, a confused camera that can’t catch-up to the race leader, random characters exploding as if losing the race, etc…
While these bugs might sound game-breaking, they often times add to the mania of the game and just make the participants laugh (actual results may vary)
The good times had while playing the game is diminished when playing without friends you know, but that’s not to say it still isn’t fun
Can you play it while the children are awake?:

Absolutely. In fact, I played it with my 7 year old and had a blast!

Did I make time to complete it?:

With a multiplayer-based game, completion isn’t really a question. Did I have a blast playing numerous races with my friends? Yes. Do I foresee myself doing so again in the future? Absolutely.

Redlight or Greenlight?:

A most definite Green light on this one. green

The great times already had with this title make it worth picking up now, bugs and all!

Recommended Purchase Price:

$9.99

it's like MarioKart, but a platformer instead of a driving game. It will be impossible for you to play this game with friends and not have a good time.

+ seriously, it's fun

+/- must be played with friends

- the platforming mechanics are a bit floaty, but they feel more responsive once you get a good feel for the movement

score = 4/5

EDIT: single player mode has been added... but I've still only wanted to play the great multiplayer
