Space Drifters 2D launched in Early Access program for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. And it will be a while before #development evolves into a full game, but the current game will provide a solid #experience to anyone willing to try the title.

Space Drifters is a top down #spaceshooter with Newtonian physics style movement. Made in the Unity engine with graphics and controls reminiscent of Asteroids with the added benefit of a local co-op and multiple versus modes.

Demo build is available for download here

Game Modes:

  • Solo / Co-Op Endless
    The Universe is collapsing, space is shrinking and you are the last pilot(s) in the universe. Survive as long as you can against 3 types of enemies. As time goes by more and more enemies will get closer to you, and no matter where you move to because space is shrinking everything will always be getting closer.
  • Versus
    Why does it seem the Universe is so Matter biased? Shouldn’t matter and anti-matter be created equaly? …What if Matter and Anti-Matter fought it out in the early Universe?
    Defeat your opposite to claim you position in the Universe!
  • Hold The Flag
    Another way Matter and Anti-Matter could triumph is be gaining mass. Pick up the Higgs Boson (flag) and hold it until the timer runs out. Holding the Boson however stop you from being able to shoot, so you must focus on dodgeing you enemies fire as he tried to destroy you and claim the Higgs Boson.

Space Drifters 2D might look like just a simple game, but the fact that it uses Newtonian physics makes it more interesting and difficult to master.
