Inertial Drift is an arcade drift racing game with gorgeous 90’s retro future styled visuals and an innovative twin-stick precision drifting system.
Drawing inspiration from 90’s classics like Ridge Racer and the Initial D games, Inertial Drift is a highway racing game that uses the right analog stick to give you real precision with your drifting. You can steer as normal with the left stick, but if you need to make it around a sharper turn then you can use the right analog stick to start a controlled drift and you can do sharper drifts by momentarily taking your finger off the accelerator.
The current build of Inertial Drift, dubbed the Sunset Prologue, allows you to get behind the wheel of two very different handling cars and race around two beautiful (and challenging) tracks. The first car you’ll drive is the Class C Coda Gecko, which is quite easy to get to grips with and perfect for learning the ropes. The second car is the Class B HPE Dragon, which is not just faster, but also drifts very differently and takes real skill to master.
It’s shaping up to be a fantastic arcade racing game that really impresses with its unique gameplay and stylish visuals that infuse the world with a bit of Anime flair. The dual-stick precision drifting makes for a very different take on the racing genre but with a bit of practice you’ll be able to earn a Gold rating on the two tracks and maybe even earn a spot on the global leaderboard. Highly recommended.
