game news When Skate Story: Skate 3 meets Journey! Crazy project of Summer Game Fest 2022

The long-announced Skate Story took advantage of Summer Game Fest 2022 and the Devolver Digital conference to get people talking about it… And truth be told, we can’t wait to see more.

Between simulation and poetry, here’s the Skate Story

When Skate Story: Skate 3 meets Journey!  Crazy project of Summer Game Fest 2022

After many years of development, Sam Eng’s project seems to have finally seen the end of the tunnel! In the effect, Skate Story, the skating game played in the flowerbeds of both sports simulations (Session: Skateboarding Sim Game, Skater XL, or Skate 3) and dreamy games (Journey), broke the news. In the program, there are figures that are animated with great care and surprising sets that are different from the ones we are used to. Here we are talking about the Underworld, an underground universe that mixes colors skillfully and lets you travel… But don’t think your journey will be easy.

In Skate Story, the player represents a demon who will have to take a skateboard and cross the Underworld from side to side in order to survive. Unfortunately, skateboarding is a dangerous sport and our hero, a demon made entirely of glass, is fragile. In other words, one falls and ends.

You are a demon from the Underworld made of glass and pain. The devil gave you a skateboard and a simple pact: glide towards the moon and swallow it… and you’ll be free.

Don’t forget that the protagonist can save other tormented souls during his journey punctuated by the enchanting music and magnificent figures that we let you admire by watching the trailer above.

Skate Story is expected to be in the year 2023. Therefore, we will have to endure our troubles patiently.
