It certainly is a racing game, but a platforming racer like Sonic R, not a kart racer. in Fling to the Finish, two local or online players control ball-like characters who are tethered by a rope and must work together to reach the end of each level, a process that ends up being riotously fun. This Steam Early Access game just got a new race type to enjoy as well as a progression system that ties everything together. Oh, and it's on sale through July 28!

Space Punks is a Third-Person Borderlands-Style Early Access Game

Borderlands is a fantastic "loot shooter" series, but it's also a first-person shooter. What are gamers who can't enjoy FPS games to do?
