What an age we’re in for skateboarding and snowboarding video games. Earlier on this not-actually-E3 week we noticed a brand new trailer for Skate Story, a phenomenal-looking race by hell, and now this is a really completely different vibe: a capybara driving a snowboard. 

We seen Slopecrashers in the course of the Guerrilla Collective stream at the moment, where a brand new trailer introduced the newest model of its Steam demo, which is out there now. I have not had an opportunity to play it but, however I just like the premise: It’s a bit SSX and a bit Mario Kart, with pickups like rockets (turtle shell equivalents) and velocity boosts.

Also, you might be an animal. The opponents in Slopecrashers are a rooster, parrot, lemur, penguin, raccoon, toucan, a pair of ferrets, and a capybara. I do not suppose it’s going to be controversial to say that my favourite Slopecrasher is the capybara. It’s not simply because it is a capybara, an awesome animal, however as a result of it is the Slopecrashers character that appears essentially the most like a daily animal standing on a snowboard.

There’s no on-line multiplayer in Slopecrashers, however it helps native multiplayer and Steam’s Remote Play Together characteristic, which I’ve used efficiently for different video games.

That native multiplayer mode is out there within the demo, in addition to an “all new demo campaign.” According to the Steam web page, the plan is to launch Slopecrashers someday this 12 months.

Aside from this and Skate Story, some current and upcoming snow and skateboarding video games embrace Skatebird, Session, Skate 4, Shredders, Grand Mountain Adventure, and you recognize what, I’ll go forward and point out Skate Story another time, as a result of it seems to be so cool.
