Checking out the massive space game Drifter has felt like a GDC tradition for years now, and this year we did what we always do: Met up to get a look at what's new and exciting in the game. It's particularly interesting, as we've been keeping up on its progress since 2012. Drifter is still in the works, and just like previous years, it's looking better than it did in 2016:

The game will be content complete inside of a few months, at which point works begin on the mobile ports with a beta kicking off at some point this summer. Will we see Drifter at GDC 2018? Well, I mean, I'd hate to break the streak!

    Words cannot express how EXCITED I am for Drifter!! I too have been waiting since 2012 for this, and it looks like we might be looking at a 2017 Q4 release!

    On another note, the game looks better this time around, and I can't wait to play it on my iPad! Hopefully, the game will support iOS 8; I'd pay $100 for it on the spot!

    One more thing, this time around, the content and future plans that the dev has for this game seems to have a huge resemblance to EVE Online, and that's pure AWESOME!! This would be my perfect single-player space exploration game!! πŸ˜€

    Between Drifter and Star Traders 2 it looks like this year is going to be a great one for space trading games πŸš€ πŸš€ πŸš€
