Glass Bottom Games, developer of Spartan Fist and Hot Tin Roof have announced SkateBIRD and it looks hilariously fun.

Drop in, and be a skateboarding bird. Grind on bendy straws, kickflip over staplers, and carve killer lines through cardboard and sticky tape parks. Skate an expansively tiny world with simple controls even a Hawk named Tony would dig.

Not only does it look amusing, it will be coming to Linux too so that's obviously another tick in the box.

Honestly, I would have written off such an idea as something too silly. However, after watching the trailer I genuinely think it actually looks quite good. My heart melted a little seeing the flapping while in the air, so sweet.

  • Drive smooth flowing, physical-feeling skating with simple buttons, not stick gestures
  • Feel immediately at home with the controls, if you dig Pro Skaters of a Hawk variety
  • Explore a series of tiny worlds full of little objectives and secret tapes (scotch tapes mostly)
  • Make bird friends by completing challenges, or just trying really hard
  • Organize skate events with your new friends! Become a skate bird legend!

You can follow it and wishlist on Steam. It's due out sometime next year, no proper date has been mentioned yet.

Looks awesome :D I liked Hot Tin Roof Cat, and this seems to have similarly good taste with music/visuals <3

Some of the animations looked very abrupt. Other than that, it looks pretty cool.
