Race the Sun for the PC and Mac platforms is free today, to celebrate the game's release on iOS.
If you haven't heard of the game, imagine a sort of beautifully minimalist Starfox, but much faster and with an emphasis on survival. "You are a solar craft," the game's description read. "The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching energy boosts which reverse the setting sun — if only for a moment."
"Race the Sun has turned into a success that exceeded our wildest imaginations, with over 200,000 people playing it on PC alone," FlippFly's Aaron San Filippo told Polygon.
"With the launch of the game on iOS today, and the DLC we launched for the game earlier in the week, we thought it would be a good time to revitalize the community on Steam and make more people aware of the game. Our experience has been that once people try the game, they love it — so if a few of these new Steam players decide to buy the DLC or the iOS version, that's even better."
The iOS version is available now for $4.99, if you'd like the pocket-sized version of the game.
