Broken Earth: Games Studio
Based in Portsmouth, England
Super Street Skate is a third person, action rogue-like. Players skate across the city, collecting a whole host of super powers to save the Mayor from trouble once more. Fighting and skating through each city, up against the many gangs, monsters and aliens that stand in their way. The mute main character is fully customisable with a collection of quirky costumes and accessories to truly personalise them. Each level is concluded with an epic large scale boss fight that typically puts the player against a monster easily five times their size, hoping to save the Mayor before he's late for his meeting or death, whichever one comes first.
Starting off as a midnight random thought, Super Street Skate has been in development for seven months now. The team behind it comprised fully of University of Portsmouth students on their placement year, working hard to make the game a reality. The development log on our website documents a lot of the progress we have made over the past few months with a little insight into how we've got this far.

About Broken Earth: Games Studio
Taking a year out from studies to start your own company is a challenging task, but as six students wanting to break our way into the games industry it was challenge we were happy to rise to. Working together has been incredibly fulfilling, with a good amount of time lost to Magic the Gathering and its been great to watch Super Street Skate grow from the tiny prototype we started with.
