Megan Fox of Glass Bottom Games announced that SkateBIRD has a demo up again, to celebrate being included in the Tokyo Game Show 2020 and you can play until September 28.
SkateBIRD is a game that doesn't need much of an introduction. It's skateboarding, with birds. Funded on Kickstarter in July 2019 with thanks to 2,526 backers giving the team $67,220 it's not actually due to release until later in 2021, so this small slice gives a quick look at what to expect from it.
What's different to the original demo? According to Fox, quite a lot behind the scenes. It's the same map but they've given it all new skating physics, "We iterated on momentum, top speed, pushing behavior, and grind friction. It's also a new iteration of the camera. Goal was to address prior feedback and see how folks felt about it now." and they also improved the balancing behaviour and lots of other little things.
A very unique take on skateboarding of course, a little silly but adorable at the same time. There's even a button in the menu that gives you a new random bird with a different little outfit and it's a bit hilarious.
There's a few birds scattered around which give you little quests to do too. Otherwise, just skate around and enjoy sweet little birds doing tricks.
You can try the SkateBIRD demo on Steam. Live until September 28.
