Metal Drift is a futuristic arena combat game in drift-tanks. It is team-based with online multiplayer. You can level up your player and your weapons over time to unlock more weapons and upgrades for your tank. Metal Drift features 56 different tank configurations with various weapon and upgrade selections to choose from. In addition, the drift-tanks have a unique energy system that allows the pilot to direct acquired energy into a speed boost or to power up weapons for extra damage. The game also features 5 different arenas, each with their own racing lines and boost tunnels.

A post covers the creation of our first promo comic for our game Metal Drift.

Posted by BlackJacketGames on Feb 25th, 2011

This last week I’ve been working on a comic (our first) to cover one of the defining features of Metal Drift; its “‘Sploadiness”. Brian and I have had a ton of conversations over the last few years, discussing the improvements we could make to Metal Drift. We never actually had the one in the comic, but it approximates the mood. One of us will be super excited about an idea, and we have to try to convince the other that it’s awesome, and worth doing. Usually we use English to describe our ideas.

Reason no. 1 is 'Sploadiness.

I’ve wanted to try drawing a comic for years. I used to redraw Calvin and Hobbes constantly when I was a youngster. I would love to do a couple of comics from the perspective of the pilots in the tanks in Metal Drift as well. Hopefully I’ll have time for that soon.

While I was working on the comic, I recorded it, sped it up, and put it in a video. Check that out below:

We'll be covering more behind the scenes dev stuff in the near future! Stay tuned.
Also, pick up Metal Drift right here on Desura.
