SHRED THE GNAR IN TRICKY MADNESS’ STEAM NEXT FEST DEMO

Show off your best moves in this modern take on snowboarding classics.

AUSTIN, TexasJune 3rd 2024 – Upcoming arcade snowboarding game by developer Nathan Dearth, Tricky Madness, has released a demo today on Steam ahead of their Steam Next Fest participation. The early access build is scheduled to launch later this year.

A Classic in the Making

A love letter to the fan-favorite snowboarding games of the early 2000s, Tricky Madness is looking to fill the gap left in recent years by the absence of follow-up titles. Iconic snowboarding tricks and a familiar tricking system are brought to life with polished gameplay, modern graphics, and modern game system accessibility in this ambitious indie title. Shred down the slopes and catch big air to score tricking points and a speed boost upon a successful landing. Don’t forget that each map is filled with secrets waiting to be discovered. Branching paths, shortcuts, and hidden areas bring plenty to explore in the eight planned standalone maps and connected mountain campaign.
