SEGA-Inspired Racer Slipstream Now Live on Kickstarter

Saturday, December 19th, 2015


Developer Noctet Studio has launched the Kickstarter for the SEGA-inspired racing game Slipstream. Check out the campaign trailer below:

As you can see, the game is heavily influenced by games like Out Run, Super Hang-On and even things like Sonic 2 if you take a look at the casino-themed area. Noctet is only asking for $6000 and the game is due to release in March 2016.

If you’re interested you can click here and be taken straight to the Kickstarter. Early-bird pledges can grab a digital download for only $5 which is certainly worth a stab if you like arcade racers.
