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 reaches Open Beta stage. 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 an Alpha state. This means that many core features are still in development and the game's controls and core gameplay have not been completed. SNOW will be entering Closed Beta in March 2015.

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

“When SNOW leaves Early Access and enters Open Beta it will become free-to-play.”

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.”

About This Game

SNOW will be entering Closed Beta as a free-to-play game this March!


On March 10th, the free-to-play Closed Beta will be available to Early Access players only. On March 28th, the mountain will be open to everyone else who signs up for the free-to-play Closed Beta.



Those who have already joined SNOW’s Early Access on Steam do not need to sign up for the free-to-play Closed Beta and will get automatic access more than two weeks before the rest of the players. We wanted to make sure our Early Access backers are the first people to try out this next major update as a token of our appreciation for all the support they have shown us throughout the earliest stages of SNOW’s development.



We will also reward all players who participate in the free-to-play Closed Beta with an exclusive Sean Pettit Red Bull helmet. This is the actual custom helmet that freeskier Sean Pettit wears on the mountain and this is the only time to get it. It won’t be available for purchase after the Closed Beta, so sign up to make sure you get yours!

Great to play in the summer when I'm not skiing. The environment and graphics quality is beautiful. The mountain is huge and fun to explore - give it a try!

Early Access Review
I grew up always playing games like Cool Boarders, SSX and the Amped series, I always wanted a open world free skiing game. I remember playing Johnny Mosley's Mad Trix but that was a letdown. Saw this game and I knew I had to play it.

I just got into the closed beta a few days ago and I'm loving every minute I have played. There are some things that still could be ironed out, but that's a given seeing its still in beta.

I can't wait until the next update so I can customize my rider more than what I have. Looking forward to the future, this game can only get better.

Early Access Review
One word somes up an Early Access title like this one, WOW. (haha wow, like the doge hahahahaahha stfu). I'm going to be 100% honest and say I really don't know where to begin. Seriously, I don't know why this game is as much as fun as it is. The physics still need work, they're are quite a bit of glitches and animations still need some work. But despite everything I can find sloppy or slack within in this game it's still just so amazingly fun. The graphics are immersive to say the least and the sound design is just, ah, pristine. There really isn't much to be said. There is endless fun and potential within this game and its worth every penny. In my case, 50 pennys, and by pennys I mean dollars because I have no problem with dropping that amount of money on such an amazing game and its amazing customization, the team at Poppermost deserve it. Thank you Poppermost for making a great game to complment my saturday night pizza.

Score: 9/10

Pros:
=>Amazing Sound
=>In depth customization
=>Well priced micro transactions (IMO)
=>Endless fun
=>Easy controls for controllers
=>Dat afterbang though

Cons:
=>Bugs and glitches
=>Unresponsive menu
=>Mother ♥♥♥♥ing rocks.

This is the most accurate simulation of skiing I've ever played. Probably could do with a tutorial level.

I love this game and it is the most realistic winter sports game to date, but, can i please not pay for my ski's, jacket, etc? This game should not become free to play if it means making the users pay just to switch ski's in game, just release the game as $15 and give us all the feature. thumbs up if they fix the merchendise tho
