Default Drifter by Celsius Game Studios

This is the latest pre-release teaser trailer for the game, including two new tracks by the game's composer Danny Baranowsky:


--- The original post is below ---

Presenting my latest game: Drifter.

It is still very much in development, but it's gotten to the point where I felt I could release the name and a teaser trailer:


It is a space trading game built upon the spaceflight engine in Red Nova and inspired by games I grew up with such as Privateer and Frontier.

The galaxy at the end of the video is the game's galaxy, and if you were patient you would be able to visit every star in it.

I am planning on posting screenshots to Twitter often, and others to this thread less frequently. Feel free to follow along to watch as things develop!

Looks absolutely brilliant, Colin! I haven't played any of your games before but will be watching out for this. Any idea on an estimated release date? Red Nova looks fantastic too, think I might check that out in the meantime.

I don't like estimating release dates because more often than not they're wrong and people still hold you to them Let's just say that I want to get it out as soon as humanly possible!

If you do check Red Nova out, I hope you enjoy it!

By date I meant like Q4 2011, Q1 2012, that type of thing. Not "Eleventy-fifth November" :P

If you need any writing or design help, do let me know as I'm a big fan of your muses.

Well, how about this, I'm pretty sure it will be done before 2011 is out and I want it to be done well before 2011 is out but there's always a chance something unexpected may happen to cause that to slip into 2012.

I should be okay for writing and design as I've basically been thinking about what I'd put into a space trading game since about 1993 That said I'll gladly welcome feedback on my updates as I post them!

Haven't had much to show in a few weeks, as a lot of what I've been working on has been under the hood but I decided to pop in and say that regretfully Drifter won't be coming out in 2011 (this is why I hate even attempting to give a hint at a release date). While I can't go into any details right now, what this ultimately means that Drifter is going to be even better when it does finally come out.

One development related to making Drifter the best it can be that I can tell you about is that the most excellent Danny Baranowsky (the composer behind such games as Super Meat Boy, Canabalt, The Binding of Isaac, Cave Story 3D and others) will be composing the soundtrack for Drifter. I am super excited about this, and I hope you are as well

Anyway, to tide you over until the next update I've added NPC ships to the mix... and I've gone and blown one of them up:
