Strange and particular projects are our downfall. Just put a series of totally crazy ideas together and you have our attention until the end of time. Fermata on the Pithos is the perfect example of this.
So, once we are faced with a title that looks too spectacular to be real. Shut Up and Drive! is a driving title inspired by classic arcades like Outrun. The person in charge of its development is Fábio Fontes and what he’s trying to create has is insane. Take a look.
What’s that? Adding fighting game quarter-circle bullshit to this?… SURE, FUCK IT!

Funny how it took me this long to try and implement this tackle thing. This now counts as a beat-em-up, right?

The confusion is evident. What the hell is happening on screen and when will I be able to play it? Let’s go by parts. First of all, the work presents us beat’em up mechanics, platforming, dancing and of course driving. At the risk of leaving some genre forgotten, the truth is that the objective is to go as far as possible, obtaining the highest score while we perform pirouettes and take the rest of the vehicles off the road.
Regarding the release date, there is good news. If there are no accidents involved, August 2021 It is the month to mark with fire. According to Fábio, he plans to make his premiere take place and PC, specifically in Windows and Linux.
Itch.io, the well-known indie development portal, is the store of choice, with its eyes set on the future towards Steam. The price will be less than 10 dollars and ensures that it will never reach mobile devices. You may have noticed that for now the videos have no sound and for the most lovers of Eurobeat it is a great doubt.
Fábio points out that for the launch there will be rock bases and that in the future he will try to include that musical genre. One of the most interesting aspects of Shut Up and Drive! is that it is made in Game Maker Studio 2 and it will bring with it 4 cars, 3 unlockable, which can be customized with multiple colors.
We hope that this entire project will come to fruition, as Fábio works at his own risk, by not receive support in development or editing. Meanwhile, you can take a look at its other very interesting title, Dunkehr.
