Adr1ft, the beautiful, eerie, and atmospheric looking indie game set in space that was announced at The Game Awards last December, has just received a new video showcasing nine minutes of gameplay. And, well, the game looks absolutely gorgeous. While questions about the gameplay, and just how long it can sustain a title, persist, there is no doubting that what we have seen looks atmospheric, eerie, engrossing, and sufficiently different from everything else on the market- which, given the glut of space games, and indie games, and indie space games, is no mean feat.
Adr1ft is, interestingly, being developed by a team that includes Adam Orth, the man whom you might remember as being behind the Twitter fiasco around Xbox One’s (then unannounced) always online and DRM policies. Looks like after some time out of the limelight, he has decided to move on with his life, and deliver a rather stunning and striking new game.
