THIS IS AN EARLY ALPHA DEMO. THIS GAME IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT AND THIS DEMO IS IN NO WAY INDICATIVE OF THE FINAL GAME.
Absolute Drift is a car drifting game. The core mechanic is drifting, which is the driving style of intentionally over-steering so that the car loses traction and starts sliding. The goal is to remain in this state as long as possible, but it takes skill and practice to become a master.
March has been quite a hectic month, lot's of work early on sending the early beta builds to friends just to see if the game actually runs on different machines (good news: it does).
The last week has been filled with doing promotional work and having to learn Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere for setting up store pages, logos, and creating the trailer.
This new trailer was fun to work on, it's a bit more sophisticated editing-wise than the last Absolute Drift videos. Matching a song to the trailer was a bit of a challenge, in the end I found a song by C41 (who I'm licensing music from) that I liked and basically made the trailer around the song. It felt much easier and organic than story-boarding a trailer on paper and trying to make the trailer and song conform to it.
Preorders have started via the Humble Store widget. The store page should be going live this week.
The Coming Soon page is finally up on Steam. It was nice to see it finally live and it's a reminder that the game may finally be out one day!
In other news, Absolute Drift finally has its own Twitter account, which I should have made a long time ago. Follow it for updates on the game!

@Pete_Ozzy No worries, thanks for the confirmation. Can't say anything about a mobile version, people have been asking for it though!
