Adr1ft is a FPX (First Person Experience) that takes place in a destroyed space station. The Object is to traverse the station, scrap up enough parts to build a vehicle to security your escape. It’s 1 part Gravity, 1 part Gone Home, and 1 part something totally new and it all looks amazing.
The 2015 Electronics Entertainment Expo was held June 9th through June 14. If you are unfamiliar with E3, it’s a trade show for video game publishers and developers. This year, there were a ton of new games shown for fall 2015 and beyond. Over the new few weeks I’m going to highlight a few of my favorite games shown at the show.
Around the GFM house, we call these kinds of games, Daddy’s Jam. Narrative driven, slow and methodical experiences. Whether it’s Limbo or Gone Home, these are the kinds of games I most look forward too, and I’m so excited to see more and more of them popping up.
What makes Adr1ft really stand out is the amount of detail put into the atmosphere. Just watching the trailer my hands get sweaty. The idea of being on board a space station, surrounded by nothing but emptiness, left alone to float is terrifying and intriguing at the same time. Warranted or not, this game is going to be compared to the amazing film Gravity due to the source material. And while I loved Gravity as a film, this game is going to be fully interactive which will take everything to the next level.
The game has no hard date, but is scheduled for release in September. If you haven’t heard of it before please check it out. And if it’s not on your most wanted list for this fall, you need to rectify that immediately. Can’t want to go hands on with this one and I’m sure we will have some fun stuff on the site.
