About This Game

"This is a story about how I learned to skate. It was hard..."

How I learned to Skate is a desperately difficult ice-skating challenge about a boy learning to skate for the first time, following an increasingly burdensome path, chasing after the girl he could never have.


Control individual legs and body tilt to move the ice-skater with a mouse or a controller. It's simple.

  • Raise a leg
  • Choose a direction
  • Release the leg
  • Tilt the body to turn

Additional info

This game is all about learning and mastering a new unique mechanic.

  • A challenge with checkpoints.
  • Inspired by a Warcraft 3 mod that I love, Polar Escape 5
  • Merged together with instantaneous mouse controls from Getting Over It
  • Takes roughly 12 hours to complete, depending on how fast you learn. Roughly 3 hours for the demo.
