Distance Advent Calendar 2018



The fifth annual Distance Advent Calendar (DAC) has begun! DAC is a community-run event where each day in December leading up to the 25th level creators coordinate to release a new Workshop level!

In previous years DAC has resulted in some absolutely mind-blowing levels being released, so we can't wait to see what's coming. There also might be a very special DAC contribution from Refract this month, so definitely stay tuned.

KEEP UP WITH DISTANCE ADVENT CALENDAR

Follow DAC level releases by joining our official Distance Discord and checking out the #dac channel. Discuss each day's level with other players, and see early previews of upcoming levels. If you would like to join in by releasing a level yourself, get in touch with the organizers by messaging Skirmisher#0172 or Backgrounds'#7604.



You can also check out the DAC 2018 Special Event via our Workshop home page. We also hope to do at least one DAC live stream this month, so more information to come soon regarding that. Happy December everyone!

“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.
