A quick Race The Sun/Flippfly update

Wow, has it been almost 3 months since our last blog update? It has!

We wanted to give our fans and followers a quick update to let you all know what’s up.

PC Update
We’ve been working hard on a PC version update, for Steam, GoG, and Humble builds.
It’s mostly a bug-fixing update, but we’ve also got a flashy new UI, with better controller support, and that better showcases the user-created content the game has to offer. By the way, you have seen the Workshop entries for the game, right?

The new update will also fix a lot of issues related to network connectivity/leaderboard submission, and will generally be a much more solid experience.

We hope to put a beta build up on Steam within the next few days, and a full public Steam/DRM Fre release within the next week or two.

Playstation Update
We’re making great progress on the Playstation version! Vita performance was a big task, but we’re getting pretty close to where we want it to be now.
Right now, David Laskey is helping us implement leaderboards, cross-platform cloud saves, trophies and more. And Forest is working on a new game mode, which you’ll be able to see soon.
We’ll be submitting the game to Sony certification soon, and once we’re further along in that process, we’ll announce a solid release date.

What’s Next?
As you may have heard, we announced Hexarden this spring. We haven’t had a lot of time to work on it since the announcement, but it’ll be high on our todo list once we get the Playstation version of Race The Sun out.

Additionally – we’re thinking about how to give our minds a bit of a creative workout – we’ve been working on Race The Sun for about two years now!
So we’re thinking about doing some form of extended Flippfly game-jamming later this summer. More details soon.

Lastly – we’re not done working on Race The Sun! We’ve still got Oculus Rift support in the pipeline, and we’re discussing ideas for how to keep the game interesting beyond level 25. We can’t wait to share more!

    Awesome! You’ve definitely got a full plate, but I’m getting anxious to see something fresh for RTS and Hexarden. (:

    Great to hear all these updates and to get a sense of what’s been going on inside the Flippfly studio. Just keep us posted; I’ll patiently look forward to more.
