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.”

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.”

Removing SNOW from Steam Inventory

A few people have asked us if they could remove their SNOW inventories from their Steam profiles, and until now it hasn't been possible.

We've now set up a system for this.

If you wish to have your inventory hidden from Steam, please send an email to info@poppermost.se, stating that you want your inventory hidden and with your Steam profile url in it.

The Steam profile url looks something like this: steamcommunity.com/id/poppermost but has your name instead of poppermost.

Please note that this will prevent you from trading and using the market. You can still play the game.

Fun and Addictive. My only complaints are the game is a little glithcy, but in a funny way. The controls are a little weird to get used to. Also i think the game needs more maps. But besides that, it is a very fun game.

TL;DR at the bottom

SNOW is one of those games that you just got to love, exploring the mountain with friends and finding amazing places to ski down and doing trix or make up an Impromptu race on your own.
Being an open world game penefits the game alot, the problem with alot of skiing games is that you start at the top and when you are down at the bottom of the hill, you have to start a new session or restart at the top.
Here you can just go and return to the top whenever you want.
Yes the game got a lot of glitches and some things like the spawning must be corrected, as it is now some random player can spawn on you and accidentally kill you. I would love to see a "only allow friends to spawn on me", And when they do spawn they should spawn a few feets behind and not directly on top of you. The game is still in Early Access so hopefully they will correct all the problems.


TL;DR:
Like Skate3 but on skis.

Great game can't wait for it to be finished. The graphics are stunning and the open world is beautiful. The dlc is a bit pricey but there is enough to do without it. Also the control scheme is a little weird on keyboard and mouse but with a controller it is awesome.

This game is 3 years old and...

  • Still is in early access
  • Has microtransactions in early access
  • Your skiis/snowboard clip through the snow
  • Ragdoll physics are rētarded and your head can spin in a 360
  • Barely has any gameplay
  • Shadow/shader bugs

Waste of time even if it is free to play

Have to admit that I was slightly hyped when I first saw the trailer. Sadly the game simply doesn't deliver at the moment.

So far (not so far into the game) my main points of critisism are:
* The techniques shown are unrealistic, something very unnecesary as 30 minutes of research should be enough to get the idea.
* The amount of clipping with the environment and objects annoys me and destroys the immersion completely.
* During the tutorial I feel overwhelmed with controls and the explaination feels a bit rushed (it's not horrible though).
* Speeding up is frustrating and feels unresponsive.
* Rotating (especially on when balancing beams) varies from being unresponive to being ridiculously oversensitive.

The game has potential and I also happen to have a huge nostalgia crush for winter sports games. Hope this continues to develop and I can't really complain to much as the game is currently available for free anyways. But an hounest opinion is more valuable than a dishounest one.

Very very good game and.... IT'S FREE!!!

The game is still in development, so all the little glitches you get sometimes will be (hopefully) fixed soon.
I hope to see more maps/events etc in the future. the store for buying cosmetics is already broad so no need for more on that right now.

Overal, very good game, and I'm sure it will be improved in the future.
Best free game I've been able to find so far
