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

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

If you ned local activity, buy this game. Plain and simple. I cannot even review the 1 player because I've never played haha. This is one of the ultimate couch gaming experiences. I can play with my 8yr or my 30 year old fiance. This is a great game for all ages that never gets old. I would even pay full price!

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

Well my rank is Diamond League and im 2nd player on worldwide...But afterall i can say if you have "fast fingers" and "good memory"(those are important to get better quickly), i recommend this game for you.It will probably very fun for you.The community maybe in silent for now.But i cant say its bad.Also items are not %100 RNG ,when you get pro ,you will get this.
Disadvantages :
  • When you join to other continents player lobby's this game becomes almost unplayable for you... above than 200 ping is pretty grind on this game.
  • And you may keep searching for a lobby like 10-15 minutes but if u'r rank is below than bronze you dont wait that much.(if its stuck just reset the steam)
  • Kind of mechanic bugs are here(but devs will solve them in time, i think)
    Community 8/10
    Gameplay 9.5/10
    with friends 9/10
    Alone 7/10
    Drug 10/10
    Connection with other players 5/10

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.

after 1000 hours i can say that i have some experience at the game. i'm the 25th on the world, i had really funny moments and really stressful moments. However, the game is much funnier if you're playing with friends or something like that. it took me 1000 hours in 7 months!

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
