Nice atmospheric ambiance!
It reminds me of a game I played on PC but I can't reminder the title.

It goes! Lots being worked on under the hood so there's really not much to show right now. There are some interesting additions that I'm hoping I'll be able to announce soon as well.

The release is likely going to be in 2012 at this point, but I'd rather make the game better than release something that I'm not happy with

I will buy this game just because your video is absolute "ZEN" !!!
And i hope, no, i wish, that the music is also in the game !
Thank you dear Dev.
I liked Red Nova already, so this will be an instant buy for me,
though gameplay wise it's not (yet?) my style of gaming. I'm not into TD/RPG/Trader etc. games. We'll see.
Keep up your incredible work.

I think the Hyperspace jump would look cooler if you had the blue flash
appear just before the ship materializes again.

Other than that...well done!

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:

Here's a little video I made last night of me playing the latest build of the game on my iPad:

Really looking forward to grabbing this one as soon as it is released Any chance of subscribing to some kind of distribution list to know when it is released? I read about the game some months ago, I had forgotten the name and it took me ages to find the thread again... I don't need a release date, just someone who reminds me about the game when it is released.

I bought flatspace for ios a long time ago, but the lack of support killed it (it was even removed from the app store several months ago), and I think that Drifter will be all that Flatspace wanted to be, at least for me .
