Description

Grab your bike and hit the rails in FutureGrind, a stylish stunt-racer all about tricks, skill, and speed. Use your futuristic motorcycle to do crazy combos on tracks made of floating rails, but be careful: If you touch the wrong rail you'll explode! Only skilled players will earn endorsements from The Sponsors and make a name for themselves.

History

Work on FutureGrind began July, 2014, expanding on a concept first prototyped several years before. In February, 2015 we announced the game would be coming to PS4. The game was greenlit for Steam shortly after. FutureGrind has been shown at GDC, E3, PAX Prime, IndieCade, and PlayStation Experience.
