If you’re a fan of the Pumped BMX games, then you’re going to be stoked on what’s coming from YeahUs (Parent company of Pumped BMX) / Adam Hunt. It looks like Adam is working on a new game called “TRAILBOSS” that has a similar feel to Pumped BMX, but with a 3D version that adds in turns and different directions that you couldn’t do in Pumped BMX. Below is a few words on the game. It sounds like it’s well into production, but still about a year out… So it’s still a ways out, but at least it’s something to get excited about!
Yo! I’m making a new game! It’s called Trailboss (at the moment) and it’s a BMX game!
I’ve been pretty secretive in the past while making Pumped BMX 1/2/3, and only announced it pretty late on in development. I thought I’d try something a bit different this time so I’m going to do lots more development posts and updates and instas and all that good stuff. So the screenshot you’re seeing now is super early, no real art, using an old Pumped 3 character (yeah Aitken!) etc. It’s all going to change loads before release.
Trailboss is a 3D BMX game where you ride through sets of trails with twists, turns and obstacles to avoid. It’s hopefully about a year away from being finished, but that’s still totally up in the air, we’re just going to have to see how it goes together! I’ve finished the physics implementation, I’m going to start building lots of levels next year and I’ve (hopefully!) found an artist who is going to start helping me build out the environments.
Update: Here’s a few more previews Adam has released since the initial announcement…
