Break it down for me

Distance is a survival racing game for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It combines the intense action of arcade racing with the exploration of a mysterious world. You control a unique car that allows you to boost, jump, rotate, and even fly through a chaotic city.

I feel like I've seen this somewhere...

Distance is a spiritual successor to the indie racing game Nitronic Rush, created by ourselves and 6 others while attending DigiPen Institute of Technology. We're redesigning Distance from the ground up to support a host of crazy new features:

  • Online / Split-Screen Multiplayer
  • Windows, Mac, and Linux (Steam + DRM-free)
  • Improved world and atmosphere (including music)
  • Powerful new level editor
  • And tons more!

Stay connected!

So, What do I get for pre-ordering?

Distance is currently released in a private beta to our early backers. Our next release will be a public beta distributed on Steam Early Access on December 9th!

Choose either the regular Distance, or go crazy with the Deluxe edition to also grab the soundtrack and digital art book once they're available. Pre-ordering gives you immediate access to the Private Backer Forum which includes:

  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes dev updates
  • Access to the development screenshots and videos
  • Early previews of the soundtrack (sample)
  • And a free Distance wallpaper pack!

Pre-ordering gives you access to all Distance public beta (Steam Early Access) updates starting on December 9th, and you'll get the final game once it's released!

To be clear, pre-ordering does not give you access to the current beta build. We are honoring early backers with access to the private beta, and you'll receive the public beta as soon as it's available.
