Roll'd: the endless runner with a twist

Hello All!

We are both happy and excited to be able to finally reveal the project we have been working so hard on for the past months:

Ladies and Gentlemen it is our great pleasure to present you with Roll'd: The endless runner with a twist.



There are many features in the world of Roll'd which we will be revealing on a regular basis. We worked hard on acheiving a unique visual effects style yet at the same time showing our love for video games in general: ranging from the CGA era, via 4-8-16-32 bit pixel art and ending with the more recent Diablo 3 and Dark Souls references and inspirations.



One of the main focuses of Roll'd is to be a competetive experience. To best your fellow man we already implemented leaderboards so you can always check who' has been the top Roller. But be wary though, Roll'd can and will be unforgiving and reaching that extra point with each game will prove to be a demanding yet exciting task.



We hope you enjoyed the Announcement of Roll'd! We are nearing the beta testing phase and the game is set to be released within the following months and we cannot wait to show and tell you more, in the meantime here is a preview of in-game parallax, lightning effects in a venue known as Spin City.



Thanks for tuning in!

Hello All!

Roll'd has finally been released on iOS and Android.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pstudios.rolld

Roll'd is an endless runner with a twist, and we do mean that quitte literally, as you control the track, instead of the runner.



Run through the varying settings all specifically stylised with references and inspirations ranging from the CGA era, through 8-16bit NES/SNES to the golden ages of the Amiga and more. But at the same time they are all up to date with modern lighting effects, dynamic weather and some other cool visual treats.

Leaderboards are set and ready to go, so you can test your skills against other players. We have many updates planned for the future, including additions of extra levels, themes, unlocks, characters and more. And upon special request based upon our Bloodborne fanart on reddit, one of the new levels will be a nod to From Software's masterpiece and will take place in a gloomy Victorian setting.

Features


-A unique twist on a classic genre.
-Addictive gameplay.
-3 selectible control schemes: touch, slide or tilt.
-Leaderboards and Social Media implementation.
-Varying and beautiful graphical settings and animations.
-Engaging Original Soundtrack.
-Varying weather/atmospheric effects, unique lighting effects, day/night cycle and more.


See you Rolling!
