Slipstream

Slipstream is a racing game inspired by the visuals, music, games and cars from the late 80s and early 90s. It's built on a custom game engine, with an authentic retro feel and unique graphics. The soundtrack, drawing from synthpop and jazz fusion influences, sets the tone for a race across a variety of exotic locations from all around the world, including cities, deserts, forests, mountains and beaches. Drifting and slipstreaming mechanics add depth to the driving gameplay, and the result is a challenging and exciting experience.

What people are saying...

The 'git gud' philosophi is core to the Slipstream experience, but with such incredibly responsive controls, learnable and memorable tracks, and five very different cars to work with, you soon find a formula that works for you.
Forbes
Plays like an old school dream, right down to the four-player split screen option which took me back to Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge as a tear escaped down my cheek. The ultimate evolution of the super scaler tech of my youth at a ridiculously cheap price.
God is a Geek
Even Yu Suzuki would be proud of this tantalising obe to a timeless era of arcade racers. Splipstream is stunning!
