We recently went to Gamescom, so this news is a bit delayed. Just before leaving, we set up Altitude0 Steam store. Game will be available in Early Access on September 10, 2014.
Altitude0: Lower & Faster is going to be mostly feature ready by the time Early Access starts, but being a small team of 2 developers we'd like to add more content in the near future during Early Access. Another thing we would like to test thoroughly is multiplayer. Hopefully early players will help us with their feedback, so we can properly finalize Altitude0.
You can read more about why we decided to go Early Access on Steam store page:
Altitude0 is coming to Steam soon.
In the meantime, we got a great preview by DigitallyDownloaded.net:
This is why we'll keep improving and making Altitude0 better and more fun to play.
Many thanks go to Chris who wrote the preview and dug really deep into Altitude0.
Thank you all for your support.
We are very excited to bring our game to Steam soon.
Now our focus will be improving multiplayer experience. Still some new features will be added until it's available on Steam.

Altitude0 Plane Crashing update - make planes look nasty!
Altitude0 being an extreme air racing game now finally has full support for plane destruction. Let's face it, players will make mistakes. Planes will burn, get deformed, scratched, lose parts and still keep flying. Something you will never see in real life.
Also when a plane is down, Altitude0 pilot always survives! Check out how...
Plane dynamics got lighter and faster for more exciting racing. Controls, particularly arcade ones are adjusted so that even beginners can fly easier and faster.
At the same time, professional controls will as always give more freedom to fly exactly the way you want.
There's also a new sandbox practice track that should help new players explore and learn how to fly before joining real racing.
Currently Altitude0 is on Steam Greenlight. Your vote will be very appreciated.
New Altitude0 update is ready.
One of the big new features is crashable objects. Apologizes to all the real racers but your flying path will now be obstructed by haystacks, barrels, logs, billboards.
You should probably avoid them or you may just want to try pushing through. It could work... sometimes :)
Another feature: changing weather conditions - from sunny daylight to pitch black night. Night flying brings racing excitement to a "whole 'nother level". Stuff just pops out in front of you so you'd better learn the track during daytime first.
For the same reason you should try out new "Night Championship".
And finally there's new music. Altitude0 now has great music (if you are a rocker), thanks to a rock/metal band, LastDayHere (LDH). Songs needs to be unlocked first, but boy they add to the excitement.
This latest update is the most complete version of Altitude0 before official release. If you'd like to play the game immediately, you can buy it discounted here.
