Imagine a Diablo-like game with the mouse clicking part replaced by an horizontal shoot’em’up core gameplay.
That’s what is Drifting Lands in essence: first and foremost an action-RPG (Hack’n’Slash or however you may call this). Then and only then a different kind of shoot’em’up, accessible to a wider audience than usual.
Drifting Lands is designed to meet both shmup and hack & slash enthusiasts’ expectations.
With the choice of your class, you’ll have the opportunity to take control of different ships, best suited to your favorite gameplay style.
You’re a super player of bullet hells and don’t mind dying on the first few impacts ?
You’ll find a perfect class for you with high-damages / low-resistances interceptors. You’ll benefit from a smart customization of your gear, but your performances on the field will be mainly based on your skill.
You enjoy the progressive design of a powerfull build through skills and inventory optimization ?
Your class will offer more resistant ships, able to put up with a lot more impacts. But if you want to shine, you’ll have to be smart in the selection of your special powers and how you create synergies with your equipment!

randomy generated missions for replayability
