A “maximalist skater” for PC and Mac.

Last summer, I wrote about Zineth, a free-to-play, pop art-inspired cel-shaded skating game from indie developer Arcane Kids. Now that same developer is back, re-imagining their fan-favorite skating game as a first-person “maximalist skater” for PC and Mac titled Perfect Stride.

So money.

Perfect Stride isn’t just the exact same game with a new perspective, but a whole new adventure that takes advantage of the first-person perspective.

Arcane Kids is adamant that it won’t be an easy game to learn. According to the developer amazing and intentionally hideous official site, Perfect Stride is “based on old-school FPS movement exploits” such as Quake Jumping, Tribes Skiing, and Counter-Strike Surfing. “The controls are very harsh and we love it, so shut up,” Arcane Kids said. He also jokingly called the upcoming title, “literally a perfect game.”

Perfect Stride will be getting a limited alpha release for those who have supported the LA Game Space Kickstarter, but fear not if you missed it. “If you haven’t supported the project before, I’ve heard that you might have the opportunity to support it and get a taste of Perfect Stride,” Arcane Kids said, suggesting that a fundraising campaign participatory is on the horizon.

Check out Perfect Stride’s dizzying gameplay in its first trailer below.
