Race the Sun giveaway announced and Brass Monkey on your Desktop

A few weeks ago we announced the release of a pretty awesome game called Race The Sun on Brass Monkey. For those of you who didn’t get to check it out it’s a deep atmospheric 3d take on the infinite racer genre where you control a solar powered craft racing against the sunset through a stark landscape full of enemies, obstacles and powerups. It’s a great game to play full screen, or on your tv. It’s also an IGF entrant and has a Steam Greenlight page… which brings us to our next point.

The Brass Monkey SDK is now available for desktop games, as well as web games. And to celebrate both this announcement and our first Desktop game, Race the Sun, Brass Monkey and Flippfly are giving stuff away for free.

So here’s the deal:

In order to sign up all you have to do is download the Brass Monkey app and play Race the Sun once between now (December 19) and January 16th, 2013 at playbrassmonkey.com, on Kongregate or anywhere else Race the Sun is available. You’ll also need to be registered (within the app) so that we have your email address and can see that you’ve played. There will then be a random drawing and announcement of winners on the 22nd of January.

The move to include desktop will expand not only the number of games that will work with Brass Monkey’s tech, but will also mean a move to deeper games. As is the case with the browser based software developer kits (SDKs), the desktop version will be available for free from Brass Monkey. Versions of the desktop edition of the Brass Monkey SDK are available for Unity or Adobe AIR. If this venture is successful the SDK will likely expand to include a C based library.

There's also an unlockable that lets you fly
