What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In Early Access we can see the community's favourite levels, features, characters, and their biggest concerns, then focus on those.
Would you like more Level Workshop support? More official weapons? A character workshop? Let us know!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until mid-2015”

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.

The free version of SpeedRunners is available now on Steam! Search for SpeedRunners Party Mode!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Gameplay features are all in and set! Play online or local multiplayer, single-player, and check out 10,000 created levels in the user-level workshop!
We're improving network code, fleshing out the leagues and progression system, working on redesigning the UI, adding more playable characters, and a lot more!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The final game will cost more or less the same, and local multiplayer is out there officially for free.
We do intend to sell character skin packs.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We read EVERYTHING that comes in! Everyone in the office is active on the forums, and chats to fans in Steam messenger all the time. Your reviews and comments and messages come up in conversation every day.”

"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."

Reverting mid-air slowdowns, upcoming changes



As you may have noticed, SpeedRunners is now getting more design updates, including gameplay and map layouts.

Last week we posted an update that made a few changes to classic maps, and introduced a mechanic that would slow you down if you slide mid-air. The idea behind the slowdown was to create a downside to constantly sliding mid-air.

Unfortunately, this backfired as that mechanic is universally loved by the community. So we're reverting it back.

Meanwhile, there's a big discussion going on regarding upcoming changes, like removing the bomb and adding handicaps.

Initially we felt like this was the old boost jumping discussion from way back, but it did turn out to be a feature thousands of players love. So no more slowing down mid-air.

I haven't played enough to decide if I would recommend this game.
What I wanted to say: It's fun to play it with friends!

Plot twist: I don't have any friends.
