Night Drifters is a role-playing game about teen drama and street racing, taking inspiration from shows like Initial D. Urban teens with fast cars, attitude, and enough time to get into trouble collide, amping up the tension until everything’s put on the line for the final race. Go fast, act rash, and don’t look back.
Night Drifters uses a simple balance between Everyday Scenes, which stoke the drama and establish the race’s stakes, and Race Scenes, in which players gamble with their characters’ stats to take the lead and overcome obstacles. It’s designed to be easy to play, easy to run, and suspensefully climactic. In addition, the game requires no hacking to run for more fantsatical settings, including sci-fi races inspired by F-Zero.
