At its core, Race The Sun is an arcade-style infinite racer, set in a procedurally generated world with an increasing difficulty ramp and a "modern retro" look. The goal is to get the highest possible score by racing into the sunset, avoiding obstacles and enemies, and collecting speed boosts and other powerups to help you along the way. You fly a solar-powered craft, and the game ends at sundown, if you can make it that far!

@drewvancamp Yeah I think it's all a factor. Visuals count for a lot, so does a "must have" concept.

@danctheduck @ForestSanFilipp We brought on contract help, which was a good choice, but still involves lots of our time for misc. stuff.

@danctheduck @ForestSanFilipp Yeah we've gotten better about designing so that the work is close to 50/50. Difficulty for us has been ports.

@danctheduck @ForestSanFilipp Weighing the option of bringing on someone full-time to handle the multi-platform stuff keep us focused.

@danctheduck @ForestSanFilipp Yeah our team of two is fairly efficient, I think. Though as the sole programmer I'm a bottleneck.
