What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's been 8 years since the last significant contribution to the skateboarding genre by a big publisher. As an indie, we chose to spend the last four perfecting the thing that really matters for a new big step in the genre - the gameplay and controls.

Now we're confident we have something of value at the core of the product, we'd like to start the discussion with the community, to include them as we roll out our road map and plans to build more content and features over the next 24 months and beyond.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's hard to make predictions in development, but until us and the community are happy with delivered core features.”

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

“The full game will eventually include more skateable content all based on / inspired by parks and spots from the West Coast, video editing and export, character customization, more skaters and gear. Note these are NOT features available in early access but are planned for full launch at a later date.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“One complete area based on the historic "West LA Courthouse" skate spot, one character, core gameplay & game mechanics and tutorial menu. Note that this initial spot is complete but also compact, and was chosen to allow us to focus on gameplay depth for Early Access rather than building level content.”

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

“We plan to increase the price of the game as more features are introduced.”

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

“With careful consideration, we have been testing and incorporating feedback into the design process since the start of development. We will be considering and involving the community in every step from here forward and communicating when and why we make each key design decision.

We welcome any feedback or thoughts about the game and can be reached at info@easydaystudios.com.”

THANK YOU. 2019, let's do this.

Some time ago we set out to make the game we suspected skate game fans like us really wanted, one that focused on the core of the experience and would bring the best parts of skateboarding to PC’s everywhere.

We're overwhelmed at the response to the early access release of Skater XL and are stoked to see so many people around the world are digging it. Our early fans helped us reach the slot of #1 upcoming game on Steam out of more than 2,000 games in only two weeks.

The content and mod community that has sprung up is truly amazing. We appreciate the thoughts and feedback from the community so far. We’re taking time to carefully plan and develop next steps for Skater XL.

We're thankful for the opportunity, we couldn't do it without the many fans who have already chosen to back the game in early access.

Thanks for your patience, if we're quiet it's because we're working hard on getting this right and building Skater XL into the best possible full release it can be.

We’re excited for what's to come in 2019 and beyond, thanks for the support and stay tuned!

RE: Controller issues

Hello all,

First of all we really want to thank you all for your support! We could not have come this far without out you!

Secondly, we understand that some of you are having issues with certain controllers. We are working very hard on fixing the issue and believe we have it isolated one particular issue to Playstation controllers. We will continue to work on this fix and will update when the solution is implemented.

For other controllers:
If you are in Steam Big Picture mode check under Settings -> Controller and check ON the Generic Gamepad Configuration. Check OFF the “playstation configuration” and “xbox configuration” check boxes.

If not in Big Picture mode, then go to the top left menu in Steam -> Settings -> Controller -> General Controller Settings and and check check ON the Generic Gamepad Configuration. Check OFF the “playstation configuration” and “xbox configuration” check boxes.

Thanks again and please do not hesitate to contact info@easydaystudios.com with any issues.
