Let's Chatter Over... Action Henk's Toy-stalgic Butt Sliding 

Sonic Meets Trials Meets Butts

Are videogames art? Or are they toys, children's playthings powered by tech so cutting-edge that it can cut the edges off other edges? Action Henk replies with a curt, confident, "Why not both?" It's a toy-themed (think Toy Story) racer-platformer that hearkens to classics like old-school Sonic as well as modern leaderboard-driven stunt games like Trials. It's simple and, as a result, refreshingly pure. It's just you, the level, and your own easy-to-learn, hard-to-master bag of tricks. You vs other people's times, you vs NPC ghosts, you vs yourself. It's already quite good, is what I'm saying, and it's only in Early Access. Watch below to see me play a bit and show off some of my favorite levels so far. Also I literally die in a fire on a few occasions, which should be fun for some of you.
