OMFG. Any game by True Axis is a definite instabuy.

Is this game similar to TouchGrind?

Yep, kind of similar to TouchGrind, but with much better controls, and with a camera angle that lets you see where your going, a beautiful looking skate park.

Whoa. This sounds awesome! I love skateboarding games and True Axis games, so sounds like a perfect combination! Guessing it'll be a while before release, but I can't wait!

Awesome news! So, which one comes out first? This or JCS2?

I'm guessing this, but we'll see LOLavi.

I'd have prefered something more like Tony Hawk but will settle for a Touchgrind variant. Has pricing been decided?

Awesome news... I'm still waiting on a decent skater. First there was Vans Skate Pool, limited to one tiny area with awful controls; then Skater Nation which wasn't bad but wasn't great (bad controls also); then THPS2 which is great for nostalgia, but not very well transitioned to iOS.

That is a good question. We want to keep this game very simple for the first release, mostly concentrating on one nice skate park and fun controls. Could get it out quite quickly with a bit of effort, but don't want to slow down JCS2 development.

Not 100%, but it will be cheap. We are keeping it simple at launch. These days you can't charge what Touch Grind did when it was release with such little content, but the market is bigger so i guess it all evens out.

The reason I wanted to make this is mostly because I wasn't happy with any of the skate games I saw and wanted to make one that I wanted to play. It's closer to TouchGrind then those games, but, I'm already having lots of fun playing it. Just need to try to finish it off for everybody else!

JCS2 will have a lot of content at launch, but True Skate will just have the basics of a fun game. If other people have as much fun playing it as me, then we can start thinking about what we can add in updates.
