At this time where we're all isolated and the world is just that bit more dreary & serious, why not check out a new game that only exists because the developers missed playing games with - and beating - their Dad?
Drive Buy is the work of 2 brothers, Max & Hugo Scott-slade, under their Glitchers development banner and takes all the best bits of Twisted Metal, Crazy Taxi & Mario Kart and mashes them into an emoji smothered vehicle combat game where the focus is on quick play, fast paced action built around walking the line between rage quitting & elation at getting one over on your rivals.

Twisted Metal x Crazy Taxi x Mario Kart. Accessible, fast game entry and quick play sessions - your experience and the rivalries you create are the game!
Drive-Buy is a short-session multiplayer vehicle combat game with a delivery twist! Drivers must hustle the most deliveries and shake down rival drivers with over the top power ups. The game offers an intoxicating mix of high speed combat and rivalries with larger than life characters and mind-bending power up combos!
“Playing LAN matches with my dad and brother were some of the highlights of my childhood, moments that I found it increasingly difficult to recreate as the ecosystem of console became so complicated, so when cross-play became a reality, I wanted to get make a game which fully exploited its potential for fun” commented Max Scott-Slade, co-founder of Glitchers.
“At its heart, Drive-Buy is a vehicle-based party game with intuitive, pick up & play controls, we wanted to create an experience which avoids the frustration of track-based racing games - hence a street-based delivery battler was created!” added Hugo Scott-Slade, co-founder “We want everyone to be in with a chance of winning - so even the player in last position can turn it around and steal a last minute victory. Or they can flood the leader’s screen with emotes and emojies to get revenge”
