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.

Absolute Drift - March Update


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.

Teaser 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.


Preorder Absolute Drift


Preorders have started via the Humble Store widget. The store page should be going live this week.


Coming Soon


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!

What do we get when/if we pre-order the game? Do we get the last build available on the website? or do we get regular snapshots (or whatever)? The latter sounds way more appetizing that the former...

Preordering will give you a copy of the game when it is released. It doesn't give access to the current builds.
