Slick and Stylish Skateboarding Game, The Ramp, Available Now
Developer Paul Schnepf, aka Hyperparadise, has announced that his “digital skateboarding toy” game, The Ramp, is available on Steam right now.
Paul Schnepf is the co-founder of Grizzly Games, a development studio well known for making relaxing titles for a bargain price. Islanders, one of their most popular titles currently sits at an Overwhelming Positive score on Steam. 95% of its incredible 12,310 reviews are positive. Their other title, Superflight sits at a similarly high score. Now, Paul Schnepf, under the nom de plume “Hyperparadise”, is releasing his debut solo title, The Ramp. Speaking about The Ramp, Schnepf says that while it’s always scary releasing a final product, he hopes players will enjoy it.
It’s always scary releasing your work into the world, but I’m super happy with how this one came out […] It’s a small game, but I hope The Ramp can become your happy place!
The Ramp is a skateboarding game that its developer describes as a “digital skateboarding toy”. Essentially, it is a relaxed skateboarding title that aims to capture skateboarding “in its purest form.” Players will be able to explore four unique levels and perform various tricks. The idea is to chill out and enjoy the flow in this easy to learn but hard to master title. It feels reminiscent of a game I reviewed a while back called Lo-fi Ping Pong. Here’s some of what you can expect in The Ramp:
Enjoy a “stripped-back experience” that aims to give players a relaxed skateboarding experience
Free roam around four unique levels each one designed to accomodate for different tricks
There are no points, levels or unlockables. This is truly a game about chilling out and enjoying some skateboarding
Listen to a “chilled-out” soundtrack while you skate away
“Chill out, do tricks, and look damn cool”
Release Date & Price
The Ramp is available right now over on Steam. You can pick it up for $5.99/ €4.99 or your regional equivalent. Head on over to its Steam store page to pick it up.
