"Pure flow, no extra fluff!"

Ramp Is The Chillest Skateboarding Game You’ll Ever Play

Skateboarding games are, more often than now, fast-paced, trick fueled experiences that aim to get the adrenaline pumping. However, THE RAMP is a newcomer to the genre that manages to transform getting on a board into a relaxing yet radical activity [via GamesRadar].

So, what exactly is THE RAMP? Well, it’s an isometric skateboarding game that aims to emulate the flow associated with the real sport. According to THE RAMP’s developer, Paul Schnepf, the game is designed to “scratch a very specific itch, which was capturing the incredible flow of half-pipe skateboarding.” Additionally, the game uses a simplistic trick system that omits most of the usual tropes of a skating video game:

“There are no unlockable things, no missions or challenges to the game,” states the devloper. “In many ways, I would rather call it a digital toy than a ‘real’ game. It is your personal flow sandbox where you can grab a 10 or 15 minute ride whenever you feel like it at what I think is a fair price.”

In a way, THE RAMP kind of looks like a what-if scenario involving The Borrowers and a Tech Deck. Ultimately, this is exactly what gives THE RAMP the edge, especially when paired with its minimalistic mechanics and lo-fi soundtrack.
