There's no monkeying around in the new roller game Rolled Out!

By - | Views: 13,557

Did you love the classic Monkey Ball or Super Monkey Ball? A hugely popular series that gained something of a cult following and a close spiritual successor is out now with Rolled Out!

Okay so it's not the same and not by the same developer, Rolled Out! is an Early Access game from Polarbyte Games and Skymap Games but it seemed to be very promising and is gaining some good early reviews. Another title that has arrived following a successful crowdfunding campaign, as it was up on IndieGoGo back in 2019 with over £40K in funding gained.

"Get ready to tilt and bounce your way through Rolled Out!, a marble-rolling game with charming characters and precise controls. All you need is one joystick to roll to the goal; fly through courses with speedy reflexes, plot your way through tricky puzzle levels, and stay nimble around obstacles like bumpers, switches, and gravity floors. With over 150 hand-crafted stages to tackle, there's always a new challenge around the corner!"

  • 150+ stages across a range of difficulties, for players of all skill levels
  • Unique environments, each with their own special style - including mechanics, music, and stage visuals. Roll through the candy factory, the desert ruins, the virtual reality zone, and more
  • Play through life-limited courses in Arcade Mode, or try any stage freely in Practice Mode
  • Track your personal best times and scores on each stage
  • Create custom levels using our Blender 3D plugin; visit our Discord to share them and download ones others have made

Now that it's in Early Access they have some clear goals in mind to finish it, with it expected to take 12-18 months to get it all sorted. You can see some of what they have planned for updates on their official roadmap.

Check Rolled Out! on Steam.

That music gave me a mild seizure, but the game looks like it really captures the magic of Super Monkey Ball. I don't often complete Nintendo games, but I did complete that one. This looks brilliant!

A bit of off-topic news: PCSX2 has just got .chd file format support. I'm converting 90 GB of my PS2 images right now...

I might be missing something, but I don't see Linux support mentioned anywhere.

The game itself looks nice, though.

Got the game to only have it trigger the crashing issues a small handful of titles cause me with my GPU
This really sucks as I loved the Monkey Ball series and was looking forward to playing this.

So they do! Well spotted. Still, I wish they'd mention Linux somewhere on their landing page, even if just in passing. I had almost written it off as a Windows-only game.
