Race The Sun Beta Expands
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Flippfly recently announced that preorder customers and Kickstarter backers for its soon to be released "endless racer" Race the Sun are invited to join the game's ongoing beta test. Race the Sun currently offers unlimited play-time, 10 levels of ship upgrades, and the Simplex World Creator. The game puts players in the cockpit of a solar powered aircraft racing to keep under the rays of the sun.

"We're extending beta access in Race the Sun to all of our preorder customers and Kickstarter backers as a way of saying 'thanks.' Our customers and followers have been unbelievably patient and supportive, and now that we're nearing launch and putting the final touches on Race the Sun, we figure they deserve a reward," said Flippfly co-founder and programmer, Aaron San Filippo.

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. A Kickstarter success-story, Race the Sun is presently on Steam Greenlight, and will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.


  • Euphorically challenging, procedurally generated, endless racer.
  • 25 ship levels and upgrades for unique abilities and added survivability.
  • Relay Sharing allows players to handoff and pick up the runs of others.
  • Create and share worlds with the Simplex World Creator.
  • ??? It's a secret.
