Hey everyone, today we’re announcing Absolute Drift: Zen Edition for PS4, a collaboration between Flippfly and Funselektor Labs.

For those of you who are familiar with Flippfly’s Race The Sun, you’ll understand why we were really attracted to Absolute Drift’s minimal aesthetic, and why we wanted to help bring the game to PS4.

I mean, just look at it!

The game is all about becoming a master at the art of drifting. Dune at Funselektor Labs created the perfect blend of minimalist art and challenging gameplay, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him on this special edition of the game for PS4.

Here are a few of the things you’ll be doing in the game:

Drifting to raise your score and multiplier:

Drifting past clipping points, (without touching them!):

And scoring massive points on the all new “Drift Lines”

And here are the types of environments you’ll be playing in:

Exploring the vast “Free Roam” area that acts as the game’s hub:

Competing on the game’s 10 Drift Tracks:

Flying down one of 4 Mountain Drift courses:

Doing crazy moves on 9 “Gymkhana” courses:

And testing your skills on one of 5 all-new “Midnight Events,” which will challenge the most experienced drifters!

Each event in the game has its own leaderboards, as well as a set of challenges that will guide you along your path to becoming a master drifter. You’ll be able to drift against ghosts of the top players, and watch replays of your event runs to learn how to perfect your skills for next time.

The journey from apprentice to master drifter is an experience we can’t wait to share. Absolute Drift: Zen Edition slides onto PS4 this summer.

    Unbelievable! The genres keeping getting blurred while new ones, even without VR, continue to spawn left and right. We truly are in a video game renaissance and we couldn’t have done it without the Indies (note: not Indiana Jones). I love art of any kind and its unfathomable to have gotten excited by something so simple.

      Thanks for the kind words! We feel the same way about the video game renaissance we’re in right now ;)
      We really can’t wait for people to try the game out on the PS4 – as beautiful as it is, it’s the challenging gameplay that’ll really hook you.

  • One can only really do a Tofu Drift in an AE86.

  • I love how you can take out things considered essential pieces of any racing game (speed and adrenaline), and create what seems like a compelling, and somehow now more elegant experience. The way SUPERHOT slows the action to a standstill, the way Hitman Go turns an action game into a turn-based puzzler. It’s very interesting, and makes me a lot more interested in games that I might not have considered otherwise :-)

  • DK approves.

  • This looks pretty amazing. Cool flow, great art style and interesting objectives. When people say they want triple A titles, I think they just want a game with thought behind it and great art direction. People are tired of the 8-bit art style. But this game is exactly what indie games should be, thoughtful, artistic and fun!

  • innovation coming from all indies which is what’s needed for creativity in the gaming industry.

  • If I could make a suggestion, the tracer/black lines should only be black only when drifting to indicate when the car was drifting and when it’s not drifting the line could change to blue. Keeping it black all the time means you can’t differentiate whether the car is drifting or not.

    The world need more indies and we got more indies. This is why I love indie games sooooooooo much.
    I <3 indies.

    This actually looks like something that will steal time away from people which is great but it doesn’t seem like something to play on the TV. I’d play it on Vita but otherwise i don’t think so.

    • consider vita and I will consider buying.. looks like it’d be a bit boring for just the ps4, it would definitely get lost in the long ass queue of games that is my ps4 homescreen (coincidentally just like race the sun on my ps4)

  • Great job on Race the Sun. I still play it often. Just recently had a few runs stretching to level 6 or 7.

  • This looks like a really nice evolution from the Minis Aero Racer. Please consider a Vita port!
