Flippfly’s minimalistic endless runner Race the Sun is getting the PlayStation treatment.
Having been released on PC last year and more recently on Steam, the game is now due for release on PS4, PS3 and Vita this summer.
It will be a cross-but title and also support cross-save.
There’s just something about going fast,” Flippfly co-founder San Filippo said on the PlayStation Blog. 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.
Making this game has been crazy, interesting, stressful, and fun, but we feel like we’ve accomplished what we set out to do. The simple, arcade-inspired heart is still there, but there are layers of complexity that let skilled players advance and get higher scores. The core experience has remained centred on that feeling of pure, deadly speed.”
