Former Neversoft Staff Creating New Skateboarding Game Without Tony Hawk


epicskater2What do you do after working on games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Guitar Hero? Make a new skateboarding game.


UpUpStart, a new startup company founded by former Neversoft and Activision staff, is creating Epic Skater. The 2D skateboarding game has a kid ride around town collecting floating money. It looks kind of early in development since backgrounds render while you’re skating and it appears there are some placeholder graphics.



UpUpStart didn’t specify a platform, but since they’re a mobile developer I’m guessing Android, iOS or both.
