80's style arcade racer on Kickstarter
« on: January 01, 2016, 11:14:20 am »
Similar to the 90's arcade racer that was posted on the forums a while back, I ran across an 80's style arcade racer in development with 16 days to go on Kickstarter.

Slipstream is a racing game inspired by the visuals, music, games and cars from the late 80s and early 90s. It's built on a custom game engine, made specifically for this game, which grants it an authentic retro feel and unique graphics. The soundtrack, drawing from synthpop and jazz fusion influences, sets the tone for a race across a variety of exotic locations from all around the world, including cities, deserts, forests, mountains and beaches. Drifting and slipstreaming mechanics add depth to the driving gameplay, and the result is a challenging and exciting experience.


A playable demo is now available on, for Windows, Mac and Linux.
