Illusion Labs Opens Up Dev Blog for Touchgrind Skate 2
The developers who had you poppin' ollies and kick flips with your fingers in Touchgrind Skate are hard at work with an overhauled sequel in Touchgrind Skate 2. To keep fans abreast of all their progress, Illusion Labs has set up a developer's blog. Find out what they're up to inside.
Illusion Labs set up the blog in early November and it currently features only a scant amount of content. It's been a long while since the release of Touchgrind Skate in 2008, so proof of the very beginnings of this sequel project will be sure to excite fans. While we don't see anything that's truly beefy in this stage of development, we are treated to a look at some of the planning for Touchgrind Skate 2. It seems like a lot of the development requires varying amounts of pens, notebooks, and fingerboards.
There's some concept art for a location called "The Factory", which is barebones blank at the moment but will eventually be transformed into a skateboarding playground. The most current blog post gives fans a taste of how Illusion Labs will harness the awesome power of physics and transform it into a mobile fingerboarding experience, meaning that they're working on the game from the ground up rather than reusing old codes from the original Touchgrind Skate.
It might be a long wait until we see anything really substantial, but frequenting the dev blog will ensure that you get to see the work in progress. Let us know if you're looking forward to busting out some sweet tricks with your wee little piggies in the comments below!
