Sometimes it’s so nice just to play a simple game without the self-imposed pressure to succeed. High-end games are amazing and show how far technology has come, with games now more like simulations than recreation. OlliOlli world takes a completely different tack to the experience:

This skateboarding action-platformer marks a bold new direction in this critically acclaimed franchise and is bursting with personality. Players flip and flow through Radland, a vividly vibrant world full of colourful characters, as they search for the mystical skate gods on their quest for Gnarvana. Radland and its dwellers are delightfully weird and crafted with an outstanding, inimitable art style. In OlliOlli World players can customise character’s looks, tricks, and style before they explore levels with multiple paths, discovering all the hidden secrets of this gorgeous skate utopia.

There are a lot of options, objectives and skills to master but no timeline or pressures since it’s a sandbox. Or you can take it to the next level, competing against others in leagues. It looks like an endlessly fun game with a lot to offer. It reminds me a lot of the early versions of Tony Hawk Skateboard on the original Playstation.

It’s coming to all of the main gaming platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series XIS and Xbox One consoles, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Keep your eye’s peeled for the release via social media and the website.
