Indie developer Sam Eng has announced Skate Story. That’s a skate game with an artful psychedelic style and matching music. Players take on the role of a demon composed of ‘glass and pain’ who must skate from the underworld to reach the moon.
Skate Story stands out for its psychedelic graphic style and soundtrack. The music comes from Blood Cultures, an artist from New York. In the game of the devil, players are given a skateboard and the task to skate to the moon. To get there, players must first traverse the ‘nine layers’ of the Underworld.
By skating fast it is possible to destroy other demons and free haunted spirits. Players can upgrade their skateboard and learn more than 70 tricks “by selling their souls,” according to the description on Steam.
The game is created by independent developer Sam Eng and published by Devolver Digital. The game should appear sometime in 2023, but when is not yet known. For now, only a PC version has been announced.
