Experimental Racer Releases Parkour-Inspired Gameplay Trailer with 4 Days Left on Kickstarter

With 4 days left and 18% still to go in their Kickstarter campaign, Refract Studios just released a new gameplay trailer for  Distance. The video reveals intense gravity defying parkour-like action on twisted roads within a dystopian city. It's captured from pre-alpha code and viewable at:  http://youtube.com/watch?v=F2ztiIe9cPY
