SkateBIRD shreds with hawk-like skill in announcement trailer

Help this shredding little bird get the block of seed with the little corn nibbles in it. And also the wormies.


What do you get when you mix some sick shredding with a flightless vertebrate? SkateBIRD. In this new experience from Glass Bottom Games, players take control of the coolest bird around for some dope grinds, kickflips, and more. SkateBIRD is coming "soon-ish" features controls like the classic Tony Hawk series. Could it be the top quality spiritual successor we've been waiting for?

In SkateBIRD, the bird's big buddy has hung up their gear for good and you're going to make their world interesting against by skating and building up a following on Tweeter, the premier bird social network. Hopefully, SkateBIRD will be a lot better than the most recent popular skateboarding game, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. Here's the most recent list of features coming to the game at launch:

  • Drive smooth flowing, physical-feeling skating with simple buttons, not stick gestures

  • Feel immediately at home with the controls, if you dig Pro Skaters of a Hawk variety

  • Explore a series of tiny worlds full of little objectives and secret tapes (scotch tapes mostly)

  • Make bird friends by completing challenges, or just trying really hard

  • Organize skate events with your new friends! Become a skate bird legend!

  • (or just be really happy all your buds are having a good time with you)

There's no set release date for SkateBIRD yet, but the game is up on Steam looks like a lot of fun. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
