Finally we can announce that we’re teaming up with the creators of Alto’s Adventure to bring you our next game: Skate City.

 

Back in 2014, Agens developer Daniel Zeller channelled his longtime passion for skating into a game called Skate Lines. The goal was to capture the artistry and fluid movement of skating in a way that was uniquely suited for mobile play.

Despite it being little more than a tech demo at the time, the game has been downloaded over half a million times in the past two years. To our surprise, it also gained somewhat of a cult following along the way! Fan mail started pouring in, more often than not asking the question: «when will Skate Lines 2 be released?»

We couldn’t answer that question right away. One thing was certain: we knew we had ambitious goals, and to reach them, we would need a partner. As luck would have it, we connected with Alto’s Adventure developer Snowman this past April, and showed them an early demo of our Skate Lines followup, Skate City.

After diving in to play, it quickly became clear that they shared our passion for skateboarding, and for building artful experiences. In the months that followed, we discussed how we could make a truly mobile experience that embodied what we both loved most about skateboarding.

Today, we couldn’t be more stoked to finally share a glimpse of what we’re crafting together with Snowman. Take a look at the first teaser trailer for Skate City.

Hope you love it as much as we do – it was made by the very talented Joe Pease, frequent collaborator with one of our favourite skate magazines, TransWorld.

The Last Ninja Twins nominated for IMGA Award


Excellence in Gameplay nominee

International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA) has probably noticed the same thing as you. Controlling two ninjas is double the trouble and double the fun.

We were proud to discover that The Last Ninja Twins are nominated in the category for Excellence in Gameplay.

What makes the game unique: The Last Ninja Twins is a beautifully hand crafted double runner, guaranteed to entertain you, increase your simultaneous capacity and push your frustration level to new heights.

Why the game can win an award: Because two ninjas are better than one! (and because you vote for this game, ‘cos we ninjas stick together)

Be sure to support the twins and cast your highly valued ninja vote. We’ll leave you with the twins’ favourite inspirational quote;

«The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it» (together with your twin brother). – Moliere
