New Stoked Rider Media
10:34 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has been allowed access to some brand new media from Bongfish's upcoming snowboarding game Stoked Rider featuring Tommy Brunner. We have two new shots from the game and a trailer showing off the built in Sky & Weather Editor. The video also shows some of the game's characteristic cell-shading 3D graphics in action.

The Sky & Weather editor will allow you to change things like:

  • time of the day
  • sky-turbidity (dust particles in atmosphere)
  • snowfall strength
  • wind strength
  • bad weather factor (shift to darker colors)
  • panorama cloud height (surrounding clouds)
  • scene cloud layer density (skydome clouds)
  • volumetric cloud distribution (floating clouds)
  • To see the shots and the movie, just follow the links provided below. If you want more information about this sweet looking title or the Sky & Weather Editor, head over to the official Stoked Rider Website.

    Stoked Rider is scheduled to be released some time next year for Mac, Windows and Linux. Stay tuned to IMG, as we will keep you informed as more information is revealed.
