    Race the Sun is far too gorgeously hypnotic to be an endless runner.

    The idea of a minuscule studio putting out a game that will potentially entrance millions with its easy accessibility and well-graduated complexity curve proves that there is still room in the market for the little guy. Race the Sun is not only a fun little addiction but hopefully also a harbinger of the return of boutique developers.

    The game (imo) is a great and sweet spot perfect balance between epicly fast action racing survival and zen like relaxing visuals sound design etc.

    It's a little unclear to me even today how exactly level progression works or if it's just an "endless" kind of deal, but regardless it's really really great, and even though it would be good enough on it's own you can even unlock customization options and try custom courses made by other players or make your own!

    Anyway, really great little game.
