Description

BEAT DRIFT is a pure action game that will test your reflexes and hone your skills. Feel the beat. Drift with the music. Push the limits to survive.

Travel down a block-filled tunnel at high speeds, avoid obstacles, and survive for 60 seconds to clear each level.

History

BEAT DRIFT was started by a small group of former AAA developer friends under the team name LunarPixelGames in Fall 2013. Taking inspiration from games/films such as Rez, Super Hexagon, Minecraft, and Tron, BEAT DRIFT has focused on creating a high-speed action experience that is extremely difficult to master yet completely fair. BEAT DRIFT was first released in December 2013 for iOS, and has evolved into something we are quite proud to call our first game.

The following blog post details much of the early development process of BEAT DRIFT: The Origins of BEAT DRIFT: How Bad Prototypes Can Be Good.
