Bongfish sent in the following announcement:
Fed up with so called snowboarding games from past generations? Got enough of those button mashing gameplay mechanics from the 1980ies? Be aware, the saviour is near! Bongfish announces STOKED RIDER – Alaska Alien, the very first next generation snowboarding game. No more limits, no more senseless gimmicks. Just choice, challenge and fun.
Equip your alien rider and drop him at the highest peaks of tremendous mountains. Wherever you want. Explore a never seen before terrain inspired by Alaska’s impressive summits or match online with your friends and players from around the globe. New equipment doesn’t only look good, it really makes you better. And you will get better yourself. Those times, where you can start a run, grab a cup of coffee and the rider reaches the bottom of the valley by himself, are over. Snowboard gaming is about the gamer. STOKED RIDER: Alien Alaska will challenge YOU.
The STOKED RIDER series was played by more than 600.000 players around the world over the last six years! Stoked Rider – Alaska Alien was released for Windows last week, now it will take it’s next step and is heading for a Linux-release in Q1 2007.
