[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Flippfly is excited to announce that it's bringing its indie game "Race The Sun" to Kickstarter.

The game's alpha demo has already garnered a lot of attention on  Kongregate, and from sites such as  Rock, Paper Shotgun.

Race The Sun could be described as a mashup of  Star Fox and  Temple Run - an arcade-style endless Racer for PC/Mac.

Now Flippfly is looking for some Kickstarter support to add some deeper community-oriented features.

In particular:

Mod tools, which will allow users to create and submit their own worlds from the in-game editor - which can be explored through  world portals in the standard game mode.

Multiplayer - a unique form of coop multiplayer where players will share links with other users, allowing them to continue the game in a sort of  asynchronous relay marathon.
