Distance Soundtrack Is Now Available!



The Distance soundtrack is finally here! It features over 2.5 hours of original music from myself and The Quiggles, including extended tracks and a few bonus tracks, all remastered exclusively for this release!

If you already backed Distance at the soundtrack tier or higher you can access your soundtrack and art book via your Humble Bundle library. Otherwise you can pick up the full soundtrack below. All 54 tracks are available in both MP3 and FLAC formats!
If you have a favorite track on the OST I'd love to hear which one it is. Let me know on Twitter!

NEW DISTANCE PATCH (v1.01)



Today we're also releasing a small patch to address some issues in v1.0 as well as include The Manor as a main menu option and include some of the new music from the soundtrack. Yes, that includes Machine 17 and its fancy remix. Check out the changelog below!

v1.01 Changelog:

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS
  • The Manor is now available as a Main Menu 👻👻👻
  • Added Machine 17 and Machine 17 (The Quiggles remix) to music list
  • Updated various music tracks to match the improved soundtrack versions
  • Updates to Entanglement, Research, Embers, Enemy, Forgotten Utopia, and It Was Supposed to be Perfect to fix minor issues
  • Updated default CameraShakeZone values
BUG FIXES
  • Fixed issues with several achievement descriptions
  • Fixed bug where unclicking Primary on a WarpAnchor would remove the option entirely
  • Fixed bug with FOV adjusting in the main menu
  • Removed version text from upper right in level editor

UP NEXT...

I was originally intending to release the OST alongside v1.0, but I clearly underestimated how long it would take to finish up extended tracks and clean up various issues in older tracks. Thanks for being patient while I recovered from the v1.0 launch and took time to wrap this up.

Now that we've all had some time to process the v1.0 launch we're hard at work on some cool new stuff for future updates. Stay tuned for more to come!

“It’s already terrifically entertaining.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Videos and words don’t really do justice to Distance. It may be the most instantly exciting, absorbing game I’ve played all year.”
PCGamesN

“The amalgamation of jumping, driving and flying is undeniably special and Refract Studios have created a worthy successor to the highly regarded, Nitronic Rush.”
True PC Gaming

About This Game

Distance is an atmospheric racing platformer. Fusing futuristic arcade racing with parkour, survive a deadly, mysterious, neon-drenched city by jumping, rotating, and flying.

The roads are treacherous with obstacles around every corner. Instead of doing laps on a loop, survive to the end in the quickest time. Your car has abilities that not only allow you to drive on the track, but upside down and on buildings and walls! You can also fly to discover new shortcuts and paths. Take on the roads alone, or in multiplayer with your friends!

The game is a spiritual successor to the multi-award winning Nitronic Rush, created by ourselves and 5 others at DigiPen Institute of Technology. It was widely praised for its innovative mechanics, visual style, audio design, and atmosphere.

Key Features

  • Adventure: A short single player experience. Drive into the heart of a dark, mysterious city as you pursue an ominous threat.
  • Arcade: Race ghosts to take on the leaderboards' best. Earn medals to unlock new tracks in several different modes.
  • Multiplayer: Online (up to 12 players) and split-screen (2-4 players) play in modes such as Sprint, Reverse Tag, Stunt, etc.
  • Trackmogrify: Random track generation with advanced seed modifiers.
  • VR: Full VR integration with support for Oculus Rift CV1 and HTC Vive.
  • Level editor: Use a powerful level editor to create levels from within the game and share them with players around the world. Over 2,500 levels have already been shared on Steam Workshop!
  • Original soundtrack: New music from the composer behind award-winning games like Nitronic Rush, Solace, and The Fourth Wall. Listen to a preview here.
