Even though the Kickstarter for Lonely Mountains: Downhill is still going on and has another five days left before it wraps up, the game has already surpassed its $40,000 goal and Megagon Industries have decided to release a minute-long demo for the title.
The game is themed around riding down 3D mountains using low-poly, high-res visuals and physics-based gameplay. Your objective is pretty simple: ride down the lonely mountains.
While the objective may be simple the challenges are not. Players will have to avoid smacking into trees, tripping over rocks, wiping out over ditches, falling off cliffs or tumbling over hills. Unlike a lot of other games, the velocity of downhill biking is just as dangerous as all the hazards that pop up along the way.
You can get a glimpse of what the gameplay is like with the pre-alpha trailer below.
The game is still a long ways away, but the developers wanted to reward gamers with a minute-long demo.
You can sign-up to download the demo by visiting the Lonely Mountains web page.
You’ll have to settle for the demo as a main means of playing the game for now because it’s a long, long ways off from release.
The developers expect to have a playable version of the game up and out by July, 2018 next year.
In the meantime, the developers still have until November 16th to finish up the Kickstarter campaign and attempt to hit any stretch goals along the way.
The main developers behind the game are a German duo who have experience working on a number of projects, including spending time with Unity, Keen Games, and various other indie outings.
