If there’s one thing we love at livecards.co.uk is keeping a close eye on our local game developers, after all, you’ll be enchanted to find out about the amazing ideas that are popping up in the indie game industry. These guys are indeed a very productive group of people!

Today’s article was written to show you all a very neat game coming to Steam store and the PSN (do feel  free to pick up some Steam Gift Cards as well as a new PSN Plus Subscription).

Personally, I love this title because it reminds me so much of the original Mario Kart and Crash bandicoots Crash Team Racing… such a fun experience! (seriously, my childhood wouldn’t be the same without these titles).

The game we are referring to is Bears Can’t Drift!? a lovely and fun game being developed by strangelynamed.com, a local indie game developer from the UK. The title is already on pre-order, you can get your copy here.

For the time being (we are already arranging to do a game review for this title, after all, we have been practicing our video game review skills) please comfort yourself with the following details of this very promising title, there will be more in the near future…

Bears Can’t Drift!? Game Description

Put your paw to the floor and power slide between the pines as you face-off against up to three friends in multiplayer split screen. Collect weapons and power-ups to blast your opponents off the track or look out for a sneaky shortcut to take the lead.

Including twelve tracks spread across three hub worlds and a complete campaign mode with up to eleven computer-controlled opponents, Bears Can’t Drift!? is retro karting action with a modern look and feel.

Game Modes

Single Race

Race against up to 8 AI opponents with 3 friends (4 player split-screen) over three laps in this hectic battle for first place. Use the pickups found throughout the track to give you shot at victory.

Time Trial

Put your skills to the test in a drive only, infinite time trial. Use the action button to quick restart if things go wrong and try to beat the top times and friends with four player split-screen.

Picnic

This twist on the battle arena will have you and your friends dashing back and forth between picnic baskets in a fun filled fight for food. Use the pickups to hit other players and steal their food but be careful not to get hit yourself!

PICKUPS

Its time to get tactical, there are four different weapons to choose from. The Salmon (Forward attack), Bee (Rear attack), Hedgehog (Shield) or Bird (Boost). But it doesn’t stop there, either use your pickup or combine it to make an even more powerful attack!. In total their are 14 different weapons to choose from.
