Get to racing, dood!

We’re excited to have the very first official Speed Run Contest for Rodea the Sky Soldier up and running!

This #RodeaRace is a North American contest that will put the best speed runners to the test. Who will be the ultimate flier? Who's the coolest sky soldier? Check out the rest of this post and then click here to enter the #RodeaRace!

We thought it would be fun to see how fast or adventurously all you awesome doods were able to complete the first level of Rodea the Sky Soldier, and what better way than by having a contest? Make sure to tag all your comments about the contest with #RodeaRace to keep up with the conversation. We're hoping to hear and see lots of awesome stuff!
