Video: Race the Sun Coming to PS3, PS4, PS Vita This Summer

5w ago - Flippfly Co-founder Forest San Filippo announced that Race the Sun is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this Summer alongside a video of it in action below.

To quote: There's just something about going fast. The desire for speed seems to be ingrained in our very nature. Race the Sun is our attempt to distill that desire into its basic form - to strip away all pretense and let players experience pure, brutal speed. Building a game with this goal in mind took a lot of trial, error, and some new ideas.

The Goals

When we first played the prototype that would become Race the Sun, we felt like we had something special. Every time one of us would crash, we'd say "Just one more run. I know I can do better." It felt like we were playing a classic arcade game designed to suck you in.

After quite a bit of discussion and thought, we decided on some specific goals for Race the Sun. It had to be fast, fun, and challenging. We knew that some of the fastest games out there were encumbered by complex rules and controls - and we really wanted our game to be fun right from the start. The mantra "easy to learn, hard to master" was adopted in lieu of design documents, and we got to work.
