Work on the spiritual successor to freeware, survival driving game Nitronic Rush is going just well, as seen in Refract Studios' above pre-alpha gameplay video of Distance. The team had a successful Kickstarter last year, raising $160,000 to complete the game by August 2013 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

As shown in the video, the game seems it will deliver on its local split-screen mode, in addition to LAN and online multiplayer. Those who missed the Kickstarter pledge can still get backer updates and early Alpha/Beta access by backing the project on PayPal.
