Based on a persistent manga-style universe, Street Gears is a massively multiplayer roller game where players can challenge each others in races or tricks contests.

After the success of its two first titles, the MMORPG Flyff and Rappelz, Gala Networks Europe enlarges its European Portal catalog with a colourful and competitive roller game build for casual as well as for harcore gamers. Developed by NFlavor Corp., the developers of Rappelz, Street Gears, mixes gameplay elements from MMORPG with a persistant universe and avatar evolution, and elements from other extreme sports game with lots of different tricks and tracks.

Based on the player’s reflexes as well as on the skills of the character, Street Gears uses attracting cell-shading graphics increasing the manga and arcade aspect of its world.

Races & Modes :

The races are an important part of the gameplay of Street Gears. From the persistent city of Park Town, the players can go into exciting races on the different tracks available. Eight tracks will be available at the release of the game but frequent content addition will be made by the development team during the month after. The tracks are classified by difficulty in order to allow the less experienced riders to have as much fun as the most famous roller stars, and different game mods are available on each track.

The Speed Mod is aimed at riders starving for extreme sensations. In this mod, the necessary time to complete the acrobatic tricks is limited, but as a counterpart, each completed trick fills the power gauge which allows the rider to set off its speed boost more often. But be careful though, because a collision with a wall or another player during the speed boost might cause damage and penalties to the rider.

The Item Mod allows the riders to gather bonus objects on the track and use them to access victory. Around ten items are available, from the oil tank to disturb the competitors to the energizing beverage which fills the power gauge. Everything is useful to reach victory!

Victory of course brings experience gains, but the races also allow riders to complete quests given by various non-player characters of Park Town. These multiple quests give experience in order to gain new levels, but also new tricks and skills for the rider.

Now in final development phase, Street Gears will be avaible in its French and German versions on the gPotato Europe portal in June 2008. As all others gPotato games, Street Gears will be free-to-play.
