Wacky Co-op Racing Game 'Fling to the Finish' Gets a Big Update on Steam

Daedalic Entertainment and developer Splitside Games call Fling to the Finish a racing game. 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!
