About Nova Drift

About this game

Survive, evolve and dominate in explosive action with your Nova Drift Steam PC key. You'll experience a 'rogue-lite' space shooter that melds a classic arcade experience with modern action-RPG elements like theory-crafting and deep player choice.

Your ship rapidly evolves as you defeat enemies, allowing you to shape its abilities and weaponry to your desires in a matter of minutes. Unlike many ARPGs that can absorb hundreds of hours of time, Nova Drift allows you to take a ship build from inception to execution in a single game session.


  • Music and audio by Miles Tilmann of Pixeljam.
  • Access over 150 modular upgrades as you progress and expand your arsenal.
  • Create a unique build every run. Games are quick, allowing for rapid experimentation, iteration, and advancement.
  • Various challenge modes to unlock, providing greater risk and rewards. The stakes are high, as death is permanent!
  • Every game is randomly generated, keeping the fight intense and unpredictable. Fight through the campaign or play endlessly...
  • Cunning and creativity are rewarded as you chain upgrade modules for powerful synergies, reminiscent of deck-building games.
  • Build to play how you want. Snipe, command a drone army, discharge your shields, charge up, burn enemies with your thrusters, or smash right through them... there's a way to make it work.


Ship Evolutions - Mods & Gear can be unlocked, upgraded and combined to make unexpected and powerful combinations:

Example Build #1: Seeking Cluster Grenade - Grenade + Body: Assault + High Explosive + Splinter Shot + Heat Seeking + Charged Shot

This build focuses on creating as many grenade splinters as possible using the Grenade weapon and sends them tearing toward targets using the Heat Seeking mod. The overlapping blasts from the initial explosion add up to a huge amount of damage at the epicenter, while the seeking clusters handle crowd control.

Example Build #2: Celestial Shield-Bomber - Hullbreaker + Amp Shield + Volatile Shields + Flash Shielding + Emergency Systems + Celestial Lance

This build takes advantage of the Hullbreaker's speed and resilience to crash damage to slam directly into enemies. The fragile Amp Shield is used not for defense, but to augment Hullbreaker's strongest aspects, gaining increased speed and force. The shield will break on impact, but we can capitalize on that using the Volatile Shields mod, which detonates the shield when it goes down, blasting all nearby enemies. Flash Shielding gets it running again quickly while Emergency Systems grant a moment of damage immunity, making charge attacks safer. Finally, Celestial Lance is used to deal burning damage to everything around the ship at high velocities!


  • Weapon: Thermal Lance | Shield: Shockwave]
  • Weapon Mutations: 1-2 variations for each existing weapon
  • Translation into French, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese & more...

Great arcade-style roguelite. Do you know that classic Asteroids game from 1979? The one where you pilot a small triangle around the screen, blowing up asteroids? This is that but with much prettier graphics, more interesting enemies, and a upgrade system. The upgrades I especially want to mention due to how distinct they can make your ship. After picking the initial weapon/ship/shield type, the upgrades may seem bland at first, with options that basically increase some stats like larger explosions or more damage. However, after unlocking a few prerequisites you progress to the more meaningful upgrades such as the ability to change your projectiles into a steady barrage or even disable your weapon entirely to power up your mines. At the beginning you'll be firing small puny projectiles but by the end of your run you could be firing massive volleys of homing missiles that wrap around the screen and heal you for each hit. Or if you wanted a different style you could be crashing through the map like a shooting star. Or plant a few turrets in the center of the map and summon other ships so you can watch them do the killing for you. A minor warning though: some people may not like the control scheme. Your ship can only move forward and turn—so if you want to go backwards you need to turn your ship 180 degrees and then thrust, unlike the more popular twin-stick shooter style where you can move in any direction just by pressing the corresponding directional key.
