Hey all, here's a brief update on our development. On the PC side we're releasing our updated PC build, V2.1. We’ve taken on board lots of feedback from you as we aim to get together a really tight codebase. So give it a bash and tell us what you think. The PS3 content is in progress and it’s running on the PS3 debug/TV reasonably well right now. We’ve got a bit of work ahead on streaming textures next for our memory management, and we’re starting on code for the menu expansion so that we can add more characters, custom boards and wetsuits.


Here’s what to expect in PC V2.1:

ADDED

  • Added water splash to the camera lens
  • Backside pivot slide animation
  • Front-side lip slide move animation
  • Backside re-entry lip slide animation
  • Front-side re-entry lip slide animation
  • New Sean animation set
  • New Olivia animation set
  • New UI art
  • New screen(s) artwork – improved screens
  • Updated Sean and Shane’s sufboard textures

FIXED

  • Camera position for duck-dive state
  • Top of the wave slide camera positioning
Patch v1.09 available now

Yep, you bet. Painful, & slow yes, but we're inching our way forward through the Sony TRC and it's coming along. We're aiming for mid next year.

Hey,
Sorry for the late reply. We're due this year for sure. It's coming. We work extra jobs aside from development so it's a slog. No dates yet.

I really hope this gets released on the PS3 soon... There aren't enough extreme sports games out there anymore. It seems as if the only games that do come out are first person shooters. I will ask of one thing though, please ensure that there is a split screen mode so you can play with friends while they're at your house. This is another thing the gaming industry seems to forget, playing with friends extends further than online. What happened to being able to stop by a friends house and run some coolboarders or 1080 head to head?

Extreme sports games are really hard to find nowadays, and must of them aren't worth the price. However, this one is, it's a nice throwback to games we haven't seen much of in the past few years.

It's a brilliant time, and anyone who's into the extreme sport genre should dig this game.
