Game: Inertial Drift

Platform: PC, PS4, Switch, XBox One

Publisher: PQube

Release Date: Spring 2020

Inertial Drift is (funnily enough) a drifting game which very much reminds us of Initial D and Auto Modellista.

Developed by Level 91 and published by P-Qube, Inertial Drift stands out from the crowd with its interesting drifting mechanic which utilises both analogue sticks to control the slide of the car. As a matter of fact, there are 16 (!) different driving styles enabling players to experiment before finding their favourite techniques.

Inertial Drift’s drifting mechanic will certainly take some mastering thanks to a surprising amount of depth: it’s just as much about coming off the throttle and using your brakes as it is squirting the gas.

Inspired by arcade games such as Ridge Racer, Inertial Drift puts the focus firmly on drifting rather than collecting boost giving it a classic vibe.

We had a chat with the Designer and Lead Programmer Michael O’Kane who talks us through the game’s unique features which you can view below.
