What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows SNOW to reach its audience sooner and improve the core game through community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“SNOW will remain in Early Access until it launches fully after the Open Beta period. At that point SNOW will be nearly feature complete with all intended content and gameplay available to the users.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of SNOW will be a more complete experience having player progression, competitive game modes and a fully-featured multiplayer experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

SNOW is currently in Open Beta. This means that many features are still in development and the game's controls and core gameplay have not been completed.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“SNOW will transition into a fully free-to-play game during the Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“SNOW's community feedback is a key component to SNOW's development. Especially in this early state, understanding what features the community wants in SNOW will shape it's long-term development.”

Game Update 0.9.2


With the goal of releasing an update every 6-8 weeks, I'm happy to share that the latest game update, 0.9.2 is now live on PC!

There are three big-ticket features included with the 0.9.2 game update: a new tutorial, new music, and a messages menu. We've also fixed a bunch of bugs, made improvements to animations, and added some new stuff to explore on Sialia. A full list of changes can be found in the full Release Notes.



New Tutorial
Welcome to Tyro Valley, the home of SNOW's new tutorial! The new tutorial brings a much needed improvement to SNOW's new user experience. When you boot the game for the first time you will automatically be loaded into Tyro Valley, a brand new mountain that contains the tutorial. Players are now required to complete the tutorial and as a reward unlock the rest of the mountain's drop points. But don't worry, the tutorial is quick and painless - it teaches you the basics of riding and performing tricks, and is much easier to complete than our previous tutorial. We've given you a lot more time to get used to the controls and more flexibility to decide if you want to move onto each next lesson.

Tyro Valley will have more content added to it in the future as it becomes and more 'entry level' mountain for new players. For now though you can ride the various tutorial piste courses and explore the forests around the valley.



New Music
We have added over 50 new tracks from 6 different artists to SNOW. Each album can be previewed and selected to be included in the in-game soundtrack that plays while riding. If you don't like an album, you can also disable it to exclude it from the in-game soundtrack through the Music Menu found in the Me Menu. We have also improved the 'Now Playing' notification to show you the artist and an image of the album the song is from. We hope you like the new music and variety of genres we've selected and look forward to expanding the music library in the future. Here's a list of all in-game music in now feature in SNOW:
  • SNOW - Official Soundtrack
  • Surfalot - Fire EP
  • Kasket Club - Kasket Club
  • Kasket Club - Dress Up As Animals
  • Kasket Club - The King of Cool and the Acrobat
  • Pasha - Bodega
  • Lovespeake - DNA
  • Dun Robin - Quick & The Dead
  • Dun Robin - Dun Robin EP
  • DEADCOLD - Ghost in the Snow



Messages
To stay better connected with our users we have added a way to message players in the game. We can now post messages as pop-ups in the Main Menu, or add longer messages to the Messages Menu located in the Me Menu. Next time you start the game you should see a message pop up in the Main Menu alerting you about this new update. You'll also be able to view the full release notes for the update in the Messages Menu.

We hope you enjoy this update. We are already working on the next update, which will be much more substantial and include even more great features and content. Stay tuned for more information coming soon.

See you on the mountain!
