Interplanetary Drift Out Today!

Interplanetary Drift is finally out! Get it now!

Plus I already found a bug, so I'll be submitting the new version today :-/ 

It's ok, it's just a weird bug that only happens if X+Y+Z happen at the same time. So don't do that and it'll be fine.

If you play the game and like it, please give it an App Store review. You can say something like "fun!" or "great game!" or "it was ok!". Whatever works! 

Oh and I made an Interplanetary Drift Facebook page because that's what people do. Wow!

Interplanetary Level Demo

Here is a really short little video of a level in the game, to give you an idea of the gameplay.

This one demonstrates how you can place gravity wells to influence the path of a comet for fun and profit.

Interplanetary Music

So, if you like bleepy-bloopy music and you can chill out to, and also music to get you excited to blow up asteroids, do check out the soundtrack to Interplanetary Drift.

I have a Bandcamp page setup where you can listen to it and buy it if you so desire. The game itself has only a fraction of some of these songs.

Or hey, here is an embedded version of the Bandcamp player:

Interplanetary Drift Has a Release Date

Interplanetary Drift will be released on Sunday, November 24, 2013!

I'll be trying to get the word out through here and Twitter and whatnot. I'll be giving away some promo codes soon too!

If you want to get an idea of what the game is like, it's like that movie "Gravity" but with a space pod, but basically the same! Well maybe Gravity had more realistic physics... but Interplanetary Drift has more black holes.

More updates to come...

New Site, New Game

Interplanetary Drift

Hi, this is Jeff (or Akolade if you wish), from Future Shock Software.

What is this? It's the site for Future Shock Software, makers of the game Interplanetary Drift for iPhone. Which just got approved for the App Store and will be available later this month (November). Exciting!

What is Interplanetary Drift anyways? Well you can get details on the Interplanetary Drift page.

I've been working on this game for quite awhile. It is my first game for iPhone, hopefully the first of many to come.

The basic story is that your spaceship is destroyed while investigating a wormhole, leaving you floating through space in a cool little escape pod, with a flashing red light and not much else.

I thought the idea of a game where you guide your player to an end goal (a wormhole) using nothing well timed breaks from orbit could be fun. You can find out soon when it gets released later this month.

If we get glowing reviews (or panned) I will make sure to post it here in the news updates. Also we will be announcing our next project sometime in the next while. 

So, this is just the beginning. Things will get more interesting when people can actually play the game. For now, check out the demo video over on the Interplanetary Drift page! Also if you like music, you can get the whole soundtrack for the game now! That way you are all prepared and can hum along when the game is realeased.
