As most gamers know, there are plenty of racing and a few skiing games out on the market covering multiple formats, but what if you combine both of these with a wacky twist? Well, take what you are imagining and you’ve probably got a fairly good idea of what the upcoming game, Tony Slopes, is all about.
I got to play this at EGX 2019, and I have to say, first impressions are excellent. What is so unique about this game you may ask? Well, it is the selection of vehicles you can race, covering anything from toilet seats and alligators, to the outrageous humpback whale, which is basically a mobile hazard.
It’s not just the crazy vehicles either, it’s the customisation of your character/racer, where you can equip obscure items such as a plunger, traffic cone or cardboard-box hat to name but a few.
Single player modes allow you to build up skills, which will allow you to unlock new racers and levels, whilst competing in multiplayer races earns cash which you can then spend on cosmetic items for your avatar.
Speaking with the developers, they explained that there will be four types of location, featuring winter, volcanic and jungle environments, with each location having an equal split of the 16 levels/tracks from within the main game, but there will also be the inclusion of mini-games which will be available for selection from the main menu.
The game is still in the early stages of development, and following up on feedback from players, they are looking to introduce stat-based handling for individual vehicles, and a full trick system so you can pull off some epic stunts while flying through the air from the frequent jumps and ramps.
Tony Slopes will first be released on Steam first, which could be followed by a subsequent release for Xbox and PlayStation platforms should they get good feedback from gamers..
