Press Releases

  King of Speed is live
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

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

King of Speed is our way of determining who is the fastest character in the SpeedRunners universe. We will track wins of every character and aggregate them. On January 1st, the character who wins will get crowned King of Speed. 

There is absolutely no ARG going and no hidden content to uncover. 

Introducing SpeedRunners ORIGINS

It's a up to 2 hour single player campaign that takes runners through New Rush City to discover the origins of SpeedRunner. It helps players learn the game, has challenges and leaderboards. It might also seem very similar to the XBLIG version's single player campaign, because it is. We decided to reinclude this mode, allowing players to learn the game in a single player setting. 

Update log:

  • Added King of Speed Tournament
  • Did not create hidden content 
  • Added taunts (press D-Pad UP or V) 
  • Improvements to Prototype and other levels 
  • Bot behavior tweaked
  • Did not add any ARG  
  • Added different colored characters, you can now play as a Pink Cosmonaut
  • Added Single player mode aka ORIGINS 
  • Included new crowdsourced loading screens
