Late last year IMG got word of a new snowboarding game in development called Stoked Rider. The title, which originally started out as part of an advertising campaign for the snowboard company Flow, is the brainchild of development house Bongfish. While an early version of the technology was released as freeware in 2001, the team is now looking to completely revamp the engine as a commercial title for 2003.
Stoked Rider features procedurally generated terrain and very impressive cell-shaded graphics. It also boasts legendary freerider Tommy Brunner as both technical advisor and main character.
Even better news is that Stoked Rider is coming to Mac, PC, and Linux. IMG has been given the opportunity to bring you an exclusive look at the first screenshots of the cell-shaded game now. Here's a description of the shots from Bongfish:

This actual in-game screenshots show the graphically rich visual style of the game utilizing an unique cell-shading technique.
