Race the Sun

Wednesday, February 01, 2023


You are a solar-powered craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching speed boosts which reverse the setting sun - if only for a moment. Race The Sun: Daily Challenge Edition is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on high scores, short game sessions, and pure fun mingled with nerve-wracking tension. The rules are simple: don't crash, stay in the light, and don't slow down!

My Role

I joined the team well after the game's initial launch, so my responsibilities were primarily focused on post-launch features and cleaning up tech debt.
