[Update: Sony confirmed Race the Sun indeed hits PSN in North America on October 21, priced $10. Flippfly's Aaron San Filippo told Joystiq the team's working on confirming the date for Europe, and the game will be available there at a roughly equivalent price.] [Update 2: MagicalTimeBean's Ian Stocker confirmed to Joystiq that Escape Goat 2 will also reach North America on October 21, and while its European launch is yet to be set in stone, Stocker notes it "won't be far behind."]
Race the Sun is already confirmed as a cross-buy game for PS4, PS3 and Vita, meaning if you buy the game on one PS platform you get it for free on the others. Cross-save is also supported to carry scores across systems.
Flippfly's endless flier looks like a supersonic take on Starfox, with players hurtling at low altitudes and high speeds as they dodge the polygonal obstacles in their way. The game's minimalist landscapes regenerate from day to day, with new leaderboards and challenges to take on each time. Also, the PSN version is set to feature new landscapes that weren't in the original Steam outing.
"One particular room involved sliding two ice blocks through a series of obstacles while simultaneously alternating between two switches that would open a path to the exit. I agonized over how to solve this particular puzzle for a good 20 minutes before I realized I was overthinking the whole process, finally reaching the exit using a much simpler approach. When you beat one of these optional levels, you don't kick yourself for not seeing the solution earlier, you feel smart and worthy of having earned your goatly freedom."
