SkyDrift gets a second developer diary


1:00 AM on 08.31.2011



If you haven't yet heard about SkyDrift, you're not alone. It really snuck up on all of us. First of all, the game looks beautiful, which isn't often said of a downloadable title. Besides that, it's an arcade racer with planes and the goal is to shoot down other planes and win the race. You're also flying fast as hell when this is all going on. What more do you want?

Now onto the developer diary. In part two of the series, we are again guided along by Peter Petrekovits as he talks to us about the planes in the game. He goes through the types of planes, their special abilities, how to unlock them, how they were created, how you can customize them and a slew of other things centered around the planes. You can also catch quite a bit of gameplay which looks awesome. You can pick up SkyDrift next week, so don't let this one drift on by.
