'Skapp' (ALL) Launches Kickstarter Campaign

by Rainier on Oct. 27, 2020 @ 10:56 a.m. PDT

Skapp is the world's first skateboarding game in which you control your board performing the tricks with your phone as the controller.

Skapp is played using the gyroscope and the accelerometer of your smartphone by doing the same movements performed with a real skateboard as we watch it in real time on screen. This game can be played with Android and iOS smartphones as a controller.

Skapp is a homage to skateboarding fans as it contains authentic brands, skateboarding cultural references, and no limits to recreate any kinds of tricks! The game features different levels adapted for all kinds of players, as well as a crazy story mode in which people's hands rebel against humanity.

Bound Games has launched Skapp´s Kickstarter campaign , looking to raise $17,731 in order to cover the costs related to the production and development without compromising the art and quality of the title.

Lots of stretch goals (some of them still unannounced) as well as a bunch of different tiers will be available to backers. Bound Games has set a funding goal of €15.000. Those who pledge €175/$207 will get a physical skateboard deck, whereas players who go for the ultimate tier, which stands at €239/$283 will get the chance to be drawn as one of the hands-on the game.

Key Features:

  • First simulator that uses your smartphone as a skateboard.
  • Use your controllers sensors to play Skapp if you prefer.
  • Discover a story mode in which hands rebel against humanity.
  • Skate through different levels adapted for all kinds of players.
