Shmup Meets Action-RPG in Drifting Lands on June 5th

May 11, 2017 - Blending the intense combat of shmup gameplay with the freedom of ARPG-style character progression, Drifting Lands defies genre conventions to create a new style of action game, coming to PC (Win/Mac) on June 5th.

Watch the new Drifting Lands trailer here:


In the skies of a shattered planet, totalitarian corporations battle to control and exploit nature's remaining resources, but you are not like them. As a new member in a caravan of outlaws, smugglers, and mercenaries, you fight for the right to survive and be free.

As a pilot, you need a ship made to your specifications and style, whether you prefer a strong defense before unleashing a wave of heavy artillery, deftly buzzing enemy fire to move in for the kill, or something altogether unique. Choose from three classes of ships, customize your arsenal with 60 different types of skills, upgrade your stats, and use the gear looted from battle to build the ship that's right for you.

Drifting Lands features a full story mode with randomly generated enemies for maximum replay value. Improve your abilities and equipment across 100 levels of difficulty for everyone from newcomers to seasoned veterans, and test your skills as a pilot against players around the world in competitive missions with pre-set enemies.

Currently available via Steam Early Access, Drifting Lands launches in full June 5th.
