Warp Drive is the very latest creation from Supergonk – the developer that gave us the unique track-painting arcade racer Trailblazers in 2018.
Warp Drive is an anti-gravity racer with an interesting warping mechanic. Players can warp to other areas of the track to find new routes, shortcuts, secrets and extra boost pickups. The striking art style was inspired by games such as Jet Set Radio; there’s no denying Warp Drive has an impressive look and feel.
After spending some time with the game, we felt that as much fun as it is, improvements to the depth of vehicle handling were needed. That said, we can certainly see the potential of the title and we look forward to getting our hands on the final version.
Currently it’s unclear which platforms Warp Drive will launch on, however, the developer has launched its previous game on a multitude of platforms so its likely Warp Drive will also release across all major platforms.
Warp Drive is currently slated for release in “the near future”, making a 2020 release a likely scenario. We spoke with Jon Kelliher, Audio Developer at Supergonk to find out more about Supergonk’s latest racing game project which you can view in the video below.
