Race the Sun has had quite the interesting launch. After releasing straight from the developer's website, the game's creators ran into a major snag -- they weren't on Steam. Despite the fact that sales numbers weren't quite up to expectations, the devs constantly listened to feedback to improve the quality of the game in the meantime, and even organized a "Not on Steam Sale" to help support other indie devs in the same position.
But it appears as if things are looking up, as Race the Sun is finally coming to Steam on December 9th. It'll be nice to see how the game performs after a wide release, as developer Flippfly has been extremely forthright with sales numbers and the entire process so far.
