Distance a tron-like neon #racer, was such an enticing proposition when it launched on Kickstarter back in 2012, swiftly securing more than it asked for. And now the title has been in closed beta for a while, but it will be getting a little more open this Autumn with the #release of a Steam Early Access version of the game.
Despite not being on Steam yet, Distance already has around 100 user-created levels on the Steam Workshop, from backers currently playing the closed beta. This and other titbits of Distance info reside in a recent Kickstarter update from developers Refract, which also shows off a neat arcade cabinet the team rigged up for PAX.
Then let the developers try to convince you:
Distance fuses the intense action of arcade racing with the exploration of a mysterious world. You control a unique car that allows you to boost, jump, rotate, and even fly through a chaotic city. The private beta currently features a short single player campaign, as well as additional split-screen and online multiplayer modes such as Sprint, Reverse Tag, Stunt, and Soccer. It also includes a powerful level editor which is connected to Steam Workshop.
If you’re not sure what a Distance is, it’s an arcade stunt-based racer featuring lots of groovy neon lighting effects, based on a free game called Nitronic Rush released a few years back.
