Break it down for me

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


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

Distance is a spiritual successor to the multi-award winning 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 a 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 Private Alpha to those that backed at the Alpha tier or higher on Kickstarter. Our next major release will be Beta, and the release date is currently "When it's ready".

Choose either the regular Beta, or go crazy with the Deluxe edition to also grab the soundtrack and digital art book once they're available. Pre-ordering also 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
  • And both tiers also include a free Distance wallpaper pack!

Pre-ordering gives you access to all Beta updates as they become available, and you'll get the final game once it's released!
