Slope Rider Interview
1:19 PM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Slope Rider, the first high quality snowboarding game for Mac OS X, is already receiving much speculation. Digital Game Developer (DGD) managed to catch up with Slope Rider creator, developer, and publisher Monte Boyd, in hopes of clearing up some questions fans have been asking, and perhaps even revealing information on Monte Boyd's feature titles.

Here's an excerpt from the full interview:

DGD: Slope Rider is a great and very addicting game. Even though I'm only working from the demo, I keep finding myself playing over and over again in trying to get more air and better tricks executed. What options are you considering for Slope Rider mass distribution? Would a packaging deal with Apple's iMac be of interest to you?

MB: A bundle with iMacs would be an incredible offer, I guess I have to wait for Apple on that one! It is relatively easy to get a game noticed on the Mac game websites, especially if it is an untapped genre. I will try to keep the game updated with new features which will hopefully keep the name in circulation so that anyone who misses it the first time round will notice it later.

Be sure to check out the full interview for more exclusive information. If you haven't yet downloaded Slope Rider, you can get it straight from MacGameFiles. A link has been attached to the bottom of the article.
