Ski Pirates (Formerly Epic Ski Trip) by Rocket Jump

Hey all, I just wanted to post a couple screens of a game we're working on. I'll be posting regular updates, mainly on my Twitter feed @antonyblackett.

Let me know what you think and stay tuned as I'll post more as I develop it.

It'll be coming out on iOS and Android later this year.

Cheers!

Just to clarify, we didn't make Super Mole Escape. Our game, Major Mayhem and Grumpyface Studios game Super Mole Escape were both published by Adult Swim Games.

It does look like an endless runner but it's not going to be. There will be elements of endless runners in there but it won't be one. I'll explain more when it's more developed

Aww s***, haha I always screw up which games you and GrumpyFace develop, my bad!

I had been playing a lot of Castle Doombad, and I just recently pulled out Major Mayhem again due to the new unlock system (which is great btw) so I think that's what screwed me up.

Nonetheless, looking forward to this!

Wootwoo!! So stoked!!! The screens look interesting enough. Can't wait to see the video you upload... whenever... =oP

I think it goes without saying, but if you don't have anything else set up already, I'm sure there's quite a few people here who would love to help beta test. Me included. =oD

I'll keep that in mind and possibly ask for testers closer to beta, right now though we're no where near alpha, haha. The game looks nice and plays well but there is almost no content or meta systems in there for goals, unlockables, upgradables and story.

I'm just playing around with Everyplay for our Ski game and here's the first uploaded video.

Does anyone know if I can change this thread's title? I want to rename it as our game is currently called Epic Ski Trip.

Yeah, you gotta contact a mod and ask them, and they'll change it for you
