Auto Drifter

Auto Drifter is a top-down 2D racing game in which the player competes against the AI in a race, drifting around corners while the car automatically accelerates. The game was made for a course as part of my Masters degree, with the condition that the game had to only be played with one button. I made two versions of the game, one played with one button where the player can only turn counter-clockwise, and another where the player can turn either direction using two buttons.

The game was built using the Unity3D engine and written in C#. I worked alone on this, hence I programmed the gameplay and created the art. The game does not have any audio.

Here’s a gameplay video of the two button version:

The one button version of the game can be found on itch.io here, and the two button version here.

I’ve provided a brief overview of the game on this page. However, if you would like to hear more of my thoughts about the game, you can read them in this blog post. You can check out the rest of my projects here.
