'Drift Stage' is all about driving sideways and satisfying your '80s fetish

If you pay attention to pop culture at all then you know the '80s are back in full force. I mean, have you played Hotline Miami? Or noticed that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in theaters? And who can forget M83's Midnight City and its killer sax solo? Well Drift Stage mines the same fetish for the 1980s and turns it into a neon-hued racer that's all about driving sideways. All we really know is that this is a racing game with a heavy focus on "drifting" -- hence the title. The simple 3D models and pixelated textures look sort of like Out Run and Miami Vice had a child then fed it acid -- in other words, they're crazy! We don't have much more in the way of details at this point, except that there is a four player split screen mode. Hopefully we'll find out when this indie racer will ship sooner, rather than later. But before you go, check out the teaser after the break, complete with Satriani-esque big guitar theme song.
