Im pumped... amped 2 has yet to be toppled as the best snowboarding game of all time. (non arcade)
My one gripe Extreme ! lack of leg movement looks like hes standing on a wii fit board instead of real skis
I honestly hope this engine is nowhere near the final product because the physics of skiing displayed here are laughable.
No weight is felt, and weight is crucial to avoid the arcade feel.
Landing a 50m jump would bury you in snow, and here the skier doesn't even bend his knees LOL
The graphics are beautiful, but please fix the physics in order for this product to rock. :)
The brief description below the video talks about skiing, and the screenshot of the video clearly shows skiing... and some of you thought this was a Game of Thrones thing? Seriously?
I've been following this games production for a while now, and i'm really excited for it! Other than snowboarding, what I want to see more than anything would be a first person mode to usable with the Oculus Rift.
Clicked because I thought this was Game of Thrones related. As the comments point out, this seems to be a common mistake.
Snow boarding and im definitely in.
Its free ill check it out though.
Also have a add friends option. Needs more people in the world. And ski dogs :D
Def needs a ton of work but they said only a year in so that makes sense. They really to get some snow deformation and what no going. Some of the clipping is pretty bad too but im sure they know this.
Still looking pretty rough.. hopefully they will be able to put more time into the animations and so on.. worth keeping an eye on tho.
They must have a crazy-good file security system to prevent people from just MODDING textures and models into the game.
Number one rule of this technology age:
"The internet will always find a way to not pay."
As for the game :
Terrible stiff animations that don't react to changes in slope angle, no snow particle effects on landing and turning, and no sense of speed.
Even if it's F2P, no excuse for Bode Miller's Alpine Skiing, a PS2 game, to be better than this in EVERY way (other than textures and poly-count OFC).
Winter can't come fast enough, for Game of Thrones. Seriously, I can't wait for winter to come. No fucking spoilers in any response I may receive, please.
I still play Skate 2 with my boy for hours. I do not understand why there are not more good games for these sports. I loved Amped 2, Coolboarders 2, 1080 and Skate @ fo shiz. This, so far, looks boring as shit.
NOOOÒOOOOOOOO!!! More F2P games. I guess I'm just old-school. I like my games in cases...on a disc or even better, on a catridge...with cover art and and instruction booklet. Basically, I like my games to be tangible products.
@Lsnake But without the wingsuits, rewind en a drop after every turn, I loved the oldschool levels DLC
@mathg04 if you dont know its an mmo
@slimskelter its a mmo
@slimskelter SSX was amazing and Shaun White Snowboarding was great..
@playniko69 The true measure of a game.
And a man.
@1blackone Well, it is a pre-Alpha version of a game made by 3 people- maybe give them some time until the game is closer to actual release oO
@1blackone SNOW dev here;
Key word is Early Access. The version of the game we are releasing is not final in any way, it is a game intended to be continuously developed. Animations are first pass and will be improved in the near future, along with dynamic ski alignment to the slope.
Particles have been improved since this video, and will be polished as we go.
@tightwad34 Don't worry most of the major spoilers have past. There's still a few but it wont be long before the viewers are caught up to the book readers. Martin needs to hurry up!
@Lhomity Coolboarders 2 was soooo good, good ole days
@LVT_PTA_PB Yeah, SSX is a good game, but it's a little too arcade for my taste, if you know what I mean. I played a little bit of SW on my nephews Wii and wasn't really impressed. I guess I could give it another try on the 360 or PS3.
Hard to do after seeing the Alpha gameplay of horror game Routine--but that was made with 33% more staff though....(4).
Snarkiness aside, what threw me off was that the game seems a little TOO raw to be shown publicly. I was expecting something that made it to Gamescom--or even on the main page of GS--to have a little more "polish" even for an alpha and had a snap-reaction to it
But, really, it has a great premise and I hope it turns out awesome!
@Adavanter I have heard one the reasons it's taking him so long is that even he gets confused about all the different plot lines and such. His health is an issue that I heard about also.
