About the Game

SNOW is the upcoming free-to-play open world winter sports game, giving players the chance to freely explore a massive mountain environment on skis or snowboard - alone or with friends. Players may also take part in solo or multiplayer events and challenges and customize their character with over a dozen real world branded products.

Help us make SNOW the best title it can be by purchasing exclusive Early Access now! During the development phase we will work with the community to extend and improve the game, leading up to early next year at which point SNOW will go Free to Play.

Early Access

Until SNOW has in-game purchasable content in place, players will be required to purchase access to the game. There are several options for players who want to support the game's development and receive exclusive content in return.






Please Note: Tester Tier also receives the exclusive content from the Starter Tier


Please Note: Founder Tier also receives the exclusive content from the Tester and Starter Tiers

These items will not all be available in the Alpha as we cannot support individual player inventories at the moment. Instead, some of these items will become available in the near future once functionality has been added.

  • Alpha Access Pass - this provides you with access to the SNOW's Alpha, that is currently live on Steam Early Access
  • Tester Access Pass - before any new features go live, a Tester Build will be made available for users that would like to provide Quality Assurance and feedback to the developers
  • Founder's Set - This 10 piece set of items will be designed together with the community and only made available to SNOW's Early Access users
  • Exclusive Helmet & Skis - These items will only be available for SNOW's Early Access users

SNOW is a wonderful open-world skiing experience. From an early access perspective this game is wonderful and is only going to get better.

Definitely has the best feel of a modern snow game. The game is in alpha, there is no sound, yet I still enjoyed every second skiing down the mountain. If you like skiing you will love this even in its unfinished state. It can only go up from here.

Edit: So I'm going to add a little more to this review because apparently people are actually reading it.

Here's what you can complain about: Lack of sound and snow effects.

Sound's no big deal, just play some of your own music in the background for now. It's the effects that really throw everything off. Your character is basically just on the mountain, as of right now there's no interaction between the skis and the mountain; no tracks, no little specks of snow going everywhere as you might expect from skis in snow. But I'm sure that's in the works, and honestly once the sound and those little effcts are in the game is more than recommendable if you enjoy the winter sports.

There's a little bit of a learning curve but I'd venture a guess and say it's easier to learn to play this game than actually ski.

Earlier today they put out a big update and really cleaned up a lot of the UI. The menu isn't all over the place and flicking out of view and they have the basic framework down for the multiplayer. It's looks really promising.

Now of course there's bugs here and there, the previous update completely broke the options menu but I have yet to encounter any crashing while actually playing the game itself which is something.

As I'm writing this there are no negative reviews so that should tell you that yes, if you're unsure whether or not to buy it and it seems interesting, but you're afraid it won't turn out great down the road; I'd recommend it even in it's current state.

I'm not sure where to start... Finally there's a ski game that doesn't dissapoint it's fanbase. This game is the Skate series compared to the Tony Hawk games. The realistic physics, amazing graphics, and not to mention the constant support the Developers give to the community. I'm happy to be apart of this game in such an early stage and excited to see what the future holds.
