What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a solo developer, I need help testing and polishing the core features/mechanics of the game. EA is a perfect way for me to do that and still keep food on the table.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the game is ready.”

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

“The full version will be much more polished overall. There will be more skate spots and more content in general.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the current features listed are implemented and working. These will be expanded and polished over EA.”

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

“The price will increase when EA has ended.”

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

“I plan to follow the community forums / reddit closely looking for suggestions and ideas on improving the game.”

Hey everyone, sorry for the long wait but Multiplayer is here! It is just the basics for right now, but it's still really fun skating with others. Once I get all the kinks all sorted out I’ll start to add a S.K.A.T.E. game mode. Along with that I will be adding more features like Friends only servers and better server sorting. Let me know what features you would like to see!

    - Gif Capture other players: you can switch to GIF capture mode while in a MP game by pressing the left start button.
    - Item Syncing

  • Levels Updated
    - Overall Increase size of most of the maps. All maps are still a WIP
    - School : Tweaks to current layout: made top levels skateable
    - Church: Size increase
    - Bank: Size increase
    - Rooftops

  • Controls Updated
    - Overall the physics and handling should be much smoother and have less hicups.

Update 3: Controls Overhaul

Hey everyone thanks for the feedback so far!

I’ve done an overhaul to a lot of the mechanics that control the board. I've reduced the max distance the board can go down and rewrote the grip system amongst other things. Overall the board should be less floaty and grip to your hands better. There are still bugs and it's not perfect but I think it's much better than before.

I also want to give a big thanks to Mentality Skateboards and Dan MacFarlane. If you skate please check out their boards and videos I've listed below.

As always please let me know of any issues and what you think of the new controls.

  • Mentality Skateboards Decks added. Grab these awesome boards in the skate shop.

  • Two new Music tracks from Sick Boys : Check them out here
    Sick Boys Itunes

  • Modularized Board Velocity Control and Flip Trick Systems: This will eventually allow for presets and different control modes.
  • Trucks are now physics objects and can rotate similar to real trucks.
  • Slightly Increase Left/Right max movement
  • Grind acceleration: Grinding downward rails/ledges will now increase speed
  • Added Continue button and hot keys after you bail. Still bugs when continuing inside of geometry I’ll address this next build.
  • School has been greatly expanded.
  • New Grip system: should allow for better movement of the front hand
  • Added sparks for grinding in replays
  • Added Oculus Controller and tooltips
  • Updated replay controls for Oculus controller
  • Changed default Bindings for shoes: Your bindings might be messed up so be sure to reset them.
  • Pass on Grind trick icons. This is still a WIP.
  • Added Dragon Flips and Dolphin Flips
  • Increased board spawner trigger size: Should help with spawning the board.


Thanks for the support everyone.
