Blind Drive is an arcade game about reckless driving coming soon to iOS and Android

Lo-Fi People is releasing an arcade-type game on iOS and Android next month called Blind Drive, as well as bringing the game to PC too.

To add some context to this setup, the driver in question has been kidnapped and blindfolded, chained to the steering wheel and ordered to drive to an unknown location. While it sounds very serious, Lo-Fi People insists Blind Drive is actually extremely campy and feels more like a B-movie crime caper with many humourous moments. I just think it’s amazing they…
