Thanks for coming along with us on this ride! Game development is complex and very hard to predict, but things are going really well. One thing to note is that we see Race the Sun as a dynamic growing thing and we plan to continually update and improve the game long after release.
We are working really hard to get the relay mode ready for prime-time. The relay tech is all in-place, but of-course there are a hundred little cases where something could break if we don't plan correctly. Expect to see something next week!
Also, there is a new update (0.37) for every backer and purchaser! If you haven't setup your Flippfly account, now would be a good time to do that and get the latest version :)
