SkateBIRD is a game from Glass Bottom Games that should fit right in with fans of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise.

If skateboarding games are your jam, SkateBIRD will definitely deliver the kind of thing you're looking for. It does, however, have a rather interesting twist — you're zipping around small levels with tiny birds on miniature skateboards.

 

SkateBIRD has you play as a chill little bird with a passion for boarding and grinding. Skate across large-scaled maps of everyday household items. Kickflip over staples and grind your board across bendy straws. Cut some tricks using cardboard and concrete. Everything is from a birds-eye view, and with some simple controls to follow, tons of collectibles and customization options, and a lo-fi soundtrack that you can customize with your own music, SkateBIRD serves up some unique fun for skateboarding enthusiasts.

SkateBIRD is available for the PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

Grind on bendy straws, kick-flip over staplers, and carve killer lines through cardboard and sticky tape parks!

You're a lonely lil' bird, and your Big Friend has hung up their board for good. Their job sucks, and lately, they're barely ever home to play with you. You're gonna fix all that with the power of being a chill little skateboarding bird. You may be tiny, but the more you skate, the more following you get, the more the world of bird skating will open up. Birds will come check out your park, help you find more parks, and together you'll (somehow) fix Big Friend's life! Above all else, skate birds try their best.

• Explore lots of bird-sized parks, with simple controls familiar to any pro skating tiny hawk.
• Find fancy clothing, secret mixtapes of new music, birbs that need your help, and more!
• Skate to an original low-fi birb-hop soundtrack - or drop in your own mp3s!

And if you bail, you just get back up - because above all else, skate birbs try their best!
