I haven’t purchased RtS on Playstation yet, but I intend to soon. Do you ever have control over whenever it goes on sale on the PSN store? I would love to support you guys, but I can’t even remember the last game I bought full-price! Plus, being 17 without a job yet, it’s kind of hard to pay $10 or more at a time for every game I …

Wow, the full version of Race the Sun has a Metacritic of 82 and even managed to earn an 8 from Gamespot! Hopefully it’ll do well on Steam!

Can’t wait for its release on PS4 and Vita now! I’ll make sure to earn all the achievements from those versions too! Just don’t make them too frustrating…okay?

I think you guys are going to get a lot of votes today and in the future. OfficialNerdCubed (Youtuber) just put up a video of him playing the game and I bought it because it looked amazing and he introduced me to the game. I know you guys are tight on money but some advertising would help a lot.

I’m talking about Steam Greenlight for the voting.

THanks so much! Also if you didn’t know, we’ve got a public beta going on with the new gameplay: http://flippfly.com/racethesun/beta-access/

Gokuguy: this game reminds me of how annoying this game is, and that reminds me of how fun and addicting this game is

Developer response from Flippfly:

Haha thanks, I think :)

Hey Flippfly, to answer your response. Yes I do see and can pick up the blue Tris things. But the speed boosts do not show up. I’m using Firefox if that helps.

Hello there, it seems when i was racing into the abyss of the sunset the trees and houses were roughly 40 feet above me after i got around 5000 distance. It told me to inform one of you guys so i figured i would, Thanks.

The stressing music when the sun goes down is awesome, but it’s a bit annoying when it lingers even after you managed to save the day (what a perfect opportunity to use this expression !) just in time, and the horizon isn’t glowing red anymore.

avatar for Flippfly

Hey, thanks for the feedback. We’d considered making the music go back to “normal” but in the end decided that having it switch back and forth might be annoying. We’ll probably…

It’s not that it’s repetitive, it’s just that it gives you a sense of urgency when there should be none. Now I know, I know, your game is all about urgency, but one of the thing I lo…

This is one of the most awesome games I’ve encountered in a while, congrats ! I just can’t stop playing and I consider buying it. Should I wait for beta version ?
P.S : I’ve been the victim of that awful glitch when you crash on an invisible obstacle. And the “very-slow-craft” thing keeps happening regularly, too.

Oops, sorry for the double post but I wanted to mention that the 80k score is pretty easy to get once you’re used to the game. In my opinion, well, no need to change that.

Dec 19, 2012 1:17pm

Ever since the game’s multiplier system has changed, getting the achievements have been ridiculously difficult. Before I can get the jump powerup I need to get 80,000 points but it takes as much effort to get those 80,000 points as it used to take to get 250,000 points before the game the changed. If you’re going to change the point/gam…

Please don’t forget about us 120hz users and include a 60 fps limit! Speedy games like these really benefit from 120 fps

Flippfly Nov 30, 2012 12:54pm

120 hz really?! Do you do 3D with that or something?

avatar for Urinat0r
Urinat0r Dec 5, 2012 12:04pm

No, I just enjoy the smoothness of 120 fps. Too bad some games keep a frame limit beneath that. I see Race The Sun has a limit of 60 on the standalone version, and the browser version is capped at 100…

When I finished a round the game blocked.But,when I am in full-screen it works.

Hmm sorry to hear that. Not sure if there’s anything I can do about it at this point without being able to reproduce it myself. We’ll keep an eye out for it.

When I said to add a key to play again, I meant a hot key to play the game again without using the mouse. I prefer to move the mouse off the screen if its not used in game play and moving it back and fourth gets annoying.

avatar for Flippfly
Flippfly Sep 27, 2012 1:57pm

Ahh I see – you should be able to use the “Enter” key to play again without the mouse. Let us know if this isn’t working for you!

avatar for zer00
zer00 Oct 6, 2012 4:39am

It does work, but it doesn’t tell you that you can press enter to automatically restart. You should at least put it in the instructions category of the description. Also, sorry for getting back …

In response to going under the map in Race the Sun: I was in area 1, lagged really bad; like 3 fps, then bam, nothingness. I made it to area 2 before the sun went down, but it seemed to take longer than it should have. My score got to 100k.

Yes, W/A/D works on Race the Sun. The only control scheme mentioned in the game was arrow keys, so that’s why I thought it didn’t work the other way first. Yes, I complained before trying it out. Sorry about that.

New request: could you put in the alternate directions in the game at the beginning?

avatar for Flippfly

Hey, thanks for the feedback. We added the A/S/D keys to the game’s instructions on the Kongregate page for now.

Looks like you guys are very on the ball at checking comments, which is always lovely, but just in case you don’t notice my comment, I’ll rephrase it here:
There was a small graphical positioning that annoyed me, the location of the ability of your choice in the right side of the screen. I noticed it while playing which was weird since …

Thanks for your feedback! We’ll take a closer look at the positioning here, and reconsider it if enough people mention it.
