True Skate has cemented itself as the world's most popular mobile skateboarding game over the last few years, generating high praise for its realistic physics engine and touch-based control scheme, along with its perfect depiction of real-life spots such as MACBA. And pretty soon you'll be able to play it on your TV.
True Skate: Big Screen was just announced by series creator and former European pro skater Ruben Garcia, who also worked as a marketing director for DC Shoes for almost a decade. It's fair to say Ruben knows his shit about skateboarding, but if you needed any more hype, Eric Koston is also backing the project. You'll be able to play the game on PC, Mac, and consoles, using either the traditional touch-based mobile control scheme or a regular controller.
There's plenty of info over at the Kickstarter page, but some key points include:
The Kickstarter goal is currently set at $650,000, which seems pretty achievable based on some of the games which have raised significantly more through the crowdfunding site. You can donate to the project here. Stay tuned for more info.
