Super System Softworks has revealed a new retro-inspired arcade racing game, Drift Stage, for Mac, PC, and Linux in 2015. According to the official website, the game is said to focus on drifting gameplay mechanics and portrays a distinct 80’s style.
The game’s Miami Vice inspired pastel colored graphics and synth-pop soundtrack draws an inspiration from the classic arcade games like, Outrun and Ridge Racer. In addition to that, the game will be featuring a single race campaign, time trial, career and infinite drift modes, as well as four player split-screen and online multiplayer modes.
Drift Stage also features a Workshop mode, which allows the players to customize cars and create custom tracks with an in-game editor. The game developers are focusing on making the game more “easy to learn and immediately fun” with simple controls while providing challenge and depth to advanced players.
An alpha demo is currently available for PC, Mac, and Linux and the developers are also considering a mobile port of the game. Super System Softworks has recently surpassed a funding goal of $30,000 USD on its Kickstarter campaign, which concludes next month.
