Sikk Tricks And Polarity Flips: FutureGrind

NAILED IT!

"Pull a sikkie you ningbot!" I yelled last night as I span through the air, throwing horns, and nailing a perfect landing on my skateboard or hoverboard or whatever cool 'alternative' transportation it is I'm riding really well in this true story. "Your neutron flow's reversed, you legger!" Yeah, pret-ty cool all right. I'm sure this experience will carry over into FutureGrind [official site], which has caught my eye this morning with its first trailer.

It's a sikk trikk simulator with a futurebike bouncing between two rails, flipping and grinding and zooming and being totally rad, howies.

There you are, in the future, zipping along rails through untextured environments, being bodacious on your futurebike. But! One rail is blue and the other is purple, and the same for your wheels. Obviously, bad things happen if the wrong wheel touches the wrong rail. "We think it’s a bit like Uniracers meets OlliOlli", developers Milkbag Games say. Here, look at it in motion:

Milkbag Games are the folks behind Photobomb, one of my favourite games from last year's 7 Day FPS Challenge (and ProcJam too). Set in a dystopian future, that first-person puzzler had us identify a bomber by virtually recreating the scene and tracking suspects by analysing nearby photos posted to social media. It's very clever and a touch chilling, and I think you might like it.

Right! FutureGrind! They plan to release it in "early 2016", and are on Steam Greenlight.
