Take Race the Sun for a Beta Test Flight Today


Flippfly is clearing the runway for a limited public beta test flight of its slick, minimalistic, procedurally generated, solar powered endless racer, Race the Sun. How awesome does that sound?

Beta access for the PC/Mac/Linux title is being run through GamesRadar, where a total of 5,000 beta keys are up for grabs in a giveaway. I have no idea how many keys are still available at this point, but play it safe and enter immediately to improve your chances of scoring a code.

If you get into the beta and like what you see, you can pre-order an early purchase pack to be ready for the game’s late-summer launch and/or help push the game through Steam Greenlight with an enthusiastic thumbs-up vote.

Want to know more about Race the Sun before boarding the beta flight? Flippfly has a pair of gameplay videos available demonstrating single-player gameplay, the game’s unique relay-style multiplayer, and the powerful Simplex World Creator tools players will be able to create custom levels with.

Check those out here, and then jet over to GamesRadar for a beta key!
