Board To Death: OlliOlli Coming To PC

By Adam Smith on February 28th, 2014 at 2:00 pm.

I haven’t played a skating game since the last Tony Hawk that was actually a skating game rather than a modern American soap opera. The plot synopsis for a skating game should never be more than a thousand words long and it certainly shouldn’t contain sentences like this: “Gaining their approval, he is let into the ranch, and meets the leader of the group, Iggy VanZant, a very rough type guy who isn’t fond of outsiders. He agrees to let him crash at the ranch if he obtains some wood for a half-pipe he is building.”

Thank the skate lords for OlliOlli then, a side-scrolling burst of speed and trickery that pleased owners of Playstation Vital Systems when it was released on the handheld last month. The trailer below is rather spiffy and the PC version will be playable at EGX Rezzed, where developers Roll7 will also unveil their next game.

OlliOlli comes to PC courtesy of Devolver’s publishing powers. They’ll also be bringing Always Sometimes Monsters, the wonderful Broforce, Gods Will Be Watching, Hotline Miami 2 and Luftrausers. Not a bad haul.

Maybe I’ll see you there. Just look for the astonishingly sophisticated man about town sipping a gin and tonic at 10am. And ask him if I got home from the pub the night before.

    Reminds me of Kickstart 2 http://www.lemon64.com/?mainurl=http%3A//www.lemon64.com/games/details.php%3FID%3D1434 crossed with Rollerboard http://www.lemon64.com/?mainurl=http%3A//www.lemon64.com/games/details.php%3FID%3D2176 (a present off a friend for my birthday many years ago). They both had really good SID music.

    Yay! I was really sad when they announced originally it was only going to be on Vita. Will definitely pick this up when it comes out… looks like it’ll scratch that perfectionist itch in me quite nicely! It’ll be nice to have a new game to swear at!

    Am I the only one hoping this was going to be a sequel to Olli & Lissa 3?

    Dang. Sounds like Devolver will be getting a good chunk of my money in the near future. Except for OlliOlli, which I already have on the Vita, and can vouch for its infuriating, addictive brilliance.

      Van Couch.

      Could not make it not say that until the 5th read. I can vouch that I’d sit on a van couch.
