by Sam Eng’s Skate Story, a visually trippy skating sim with an even trippier premise, received a new trailer at Devolver Digital’s 2022 Showcase. It releases in 2023 for PC and, much like its initial reveal, looks very good. Check out the trailer below.
In Skate Story, you’re a demon but not just any demon. You’re made of “glass and pain.” The only route to freedom is by making a deal with the Devil, who tells you to skate to the Moon and swallow it. A simple task, though potentially shattering into a million pieces with each botched trick can be a problem.
Despite its far-out set-up and plot, this is still a skateboarding game. There are over 70 tricks to perform, skate trials to complete, new gear to earn and various troubled souls to help out. With nine layers to explore and a smooth soundtrack by Blood Cultures and John Fio, Skate Story may be worth keeping an eye on.
