I really love minimalism; not just in gaming, but in a lot of things. Unfortunately, there’s been a lot of misuse of the word in games, swapping it in as a justification for a lack of creativity or content rather than denoting a design element or choice. Race the Sun, though, does the minimalist thing very well, embracing a simplistic design structure without stripping away anything that detracts from gameplay, and – more importantly – without restricting itself from including things that add to it. This is minimalism in the best way, used as a mechanism for expression rather than a hard limit on creativity.
