First, before I get into the good stuff, let me just officially introduce myself. My name is Drew and I am the new Flippfly Community & Customer Support Manager. This means you'll start to see me join discussions and post announcements like these. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll still hear from Aaron and Forest some, too.
I'm also the first person you speak with over at our support forum and through our primary Twitter and Facebook accounts. I will be lurking everywhere. ...But enough about me!
For some time, our players have been asking for a "zen" type mode for Race The Sun. And we’ve been listening! Today we launched a $1.99 DLC here on Steam, called Sunrise
. This beautiful new mode has all the speed of the original but without a setting sun, an increasing difficulty, or a leaderboard. Just settle in and zone out for one infinite region of bliss. Go check it out!
We’re looking forward to hear what you think! Please leave us your comments!
Along with this newly available DLC, we have also made some updates to the game including new features we think you're going to love!
- First-Person Camera Mode: at the press of a button ("c" on your keyboard by default) race with a cockpit view from within the ship!
- Friend's Highscores in the Sky: now you can literally see yourself passing your friend’s scores without leaving the main course!
We're very excited about these updates and hope you are, too! Please let us know what you think of the new features.
And I look forward to talking with you in the Discussions section. If you ever experience any strange behavior with Race The Sun or need help with your Flippfly account or other Flippfly products, please head over to our support forum
and I will see what I can do for you.
You can also say hello to us via Twitter
Until next time,
Race The Sun Fan + Flippfly Community & Customer Support Manager
Hey all, we actually released this a few weeks ago, but failed to announce it properly! If you opt into the latest 'beta', and have an Oculus DK1/DK2, you can launch Race The Sun with Oculus support turnen on. Let us know what you think!
