Time for some freerunning. DoubleDutch’s SpeedRunners [official site] is a spiffy side-scrolling competitive platformer in which each player controls a superhero attempting to reach the scene of a crime ahead of his or her cohorts. It’s a game about running, dodging, jumping and – most importantly – swinging from a lovely grappling hook. It’s a splendid game, supporting local and online 2-4 player games, as well as solo play against bots. You can try it for free this weekend, starting now, and there’s a 67% discount should you wish to buy.
SpeedRunners [official site] had my attention at the mention of walljumping and grappling hooks. Two years later and the racing platformer, still in Early Access, has grown more than I ever expected. It’s officially recognised by the eSports League and it s been downloaded over a million times. This is a look at how SpeedRunners has progressed since its initial Early Access release, and why it stands as a shining example of the development process used correctly.
