Creative Concepts wants to bring a new inline skating game named On A Roll to Steam. The game looks like a decent indie game from the outside looking in, but looking deeper at the core gameplay reveals some aspects that have some people comparing it to Skate. On A Roll is set to release for PC via Steam Early Access late August
At first I thought On A Roll was serious, but upon doing further research on Creative Concepts’ upcoming inline skating game, I think it’s clear that this game will be more glitchy than expected. For crying out loud, it’s listed as an action game…
Often compared to Skate, except without the skateboard, On A Roll offers gamers an inline skating experience “at its finest” and will focus around stunts and adrenaline pumping tricks. Catching big air is just the basics, the name of the game is all about doing the unthinkable. However the unthinkable can be further explored through a stage editor.
According to the devs, On A Roll features “everything sport sim fans love” and includes a replay editor to catch all of your mondo moments. But if that becomes boring, the game also feature an open world so that you can explore to your heart’s content.
Two of the latest video trailers showing the game comes in courtesy of On A Roll‘s YouTube channel.
Now that you’ve witnessed a nice chunk of the game, some people see On A Roll as the next Skate.
The reason behind this is that both appear to be “normal” on the outside, until a master gets behind it and reveals the true potential waiting to be discovered from the very start. Take HelixSnake for example (whose work is featured in an actual music video), at 2:13 this guy has more game than a Picasso painting…
Well, in the next two or three days (as of this writing) we’ll be able tell if On A Roll will be able to quench the thirst of Skate fans looking for another fun open world skating game, except there won’t be skateboards.
On A Roll is set to release for PC via Steam Early Access either on August 30th or 31st.
