August 19, 2013 - Every day, a new wold of infinite landscapes beckons you forward through treacherous hazards and the devious constructs of player-created realms. In this world of exotic dangers, the only assurances are speed and death.

Race the Sun is the deadly-fast endless racer that challenges the limitations and expectations of the genre, and you can play it today for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The rules are simple: don't crash, rack up points, and keep boosting to keep your solar-powered craft in the ever-sinking rays of the sun. Race the Sun uses a mixture of hand-crafted and procedurally generated stages to provide a unique world every day, and invites users to create and share their own.

Features:

- Endless racer for the hardcore crowd.

- Inifinite worlds that change daily for continuous challenge.

- Ridiculously-hard Apocalypse Mode.

- Tools for world-creation and -sharing.

- 25 levels of ship upgrades and customizations.

- Relay sharing. Pass your run off to someone else, or complete others.

A fully independent release and Kickstarter-success, Race the Sun is the first game from the brotherly duo of Flippfly. You can learn more at:
