5 Year Anniversary!

Last Sunday, August 26th, marked the 5 year anniversary of SpeedRunners launching on Early Access. In the spirit of Early Access, we’re releasing an update that breaks the game, literally. We call it ‘SpeedRuiners’.

With this modifier, explosions (caused by Rockets, Bombs and Fireballs) will destroy the level geometry - creating shortcuts, opening up new routes or simply just breaking the whole level.

We recommend you turn on triple rockets and simply enjoy the chaos.

(On a serious note: obviously this modifier breaks the game, so it will only be active in quick and custom matches (not in ranked). We’ll turn it off after a couple of days, after which the modifier will be available as a custom game option).

Finally, we’d like to thank all of you who have played our little game over the past five years. We’re grateful for your support and we hope you’ve had some fun with the game! Stay tuned, because we’re working on a new update that will impact the way the game is played in a major way.

The Team Update is here! Also: new DLC!

We're super excited to announce that we've just released the first of our upcoming free updates; the Team Update!

This addition adds TEAMPLAY to SpeedRunners. You can now play 2v2, as well as 2v1v1. Simply pick a teammate in the lobby and you're good to go! Here’s how it works:

  • Teammates share their boost bars
  • Teammates can swap their items
  • Score 4 points as a team to win

Additionally, we've just released a new character pack as DLC! It has four new characters that you can play as; Showtime, Cannon Fyodor, Diamond Diva and Dashwell!

More details here!

NB: the update is completely free, you do not need to buy the DLC to access the teamplay features.
