I found this pretty awesome arcade racing game while i was browsing through Kickstarter and i wanted to share it. I am glad to see another racing game coming to Linux, since our supply of racing games is a bit short.

The starting pledge is $10 dollars, for a (DRM Free) digital copy + a steam key.

You can find a Linux demo, that has both 32bit and 64bit binaries here:


Drift Stage is a modern take on the classic arcade racer. Paying homage to the eras that birthed the genre, Drift Stage features a unique art style, blending pixel art and 3D models to create a colourful and vibrant world to race in. Focusing on easy to pick up gameplay with enough depth to keep dedicated race fans satisfied, Drift Stage hopes to bring back the blend of pure fun and challenge that was a staple of arcade classics.

This game is also on steam greenlight, but it has already been greenlit, so they will eventually come to Steam. Article taken from

Very unique style. I will look at buying it once it's released on steam.

I like racing games, but the color scheme in this one gives me a headache... :/ The racing games I played back in the day on my Amiga didn't look like that, did they? Well, admittedly Outrun did have bright colours all over the place, but games like Jaguar XJ220 (ahh, the nostalgia), Test Drive and Road Rash certainly did not. Then again, I have no idea what the racers you'd play at the actual arcade looked like back then.
