The most daring, dangerous, heart-stopping race in the universe is the Sun Run, a lap of the entire solar system and around the sun. Teams from across the solar system are pitted against each other in a race that will test their physical endurance and their wits.

There have been rumours of a mysterious interstellar dust cloud. When Olli and Gamma are struck down by engine trouble early in the race they discover a disaster in the making. Can they find a way to work with the Plutonians to save the universe from impending doom?

Plunge headfirst into an immersive space adventure. With a pair of headphones and a mobile device, you become a Sun Runner, hurtling across the farthest reaches of the solar system in the race of your life. Sun Runners infuses imaginative, physical play with a cinematic score to create a thrilling action-packed experience. Each player experiences a different perspective of the same story; by working together you might just have a chance at saving the universe.

Definitely do it. You will literally have the best time of your life!
