OlliOlli World – Bringing The Tricks to the Third Dimension
OlliOlli 1 and 2 were both cracking little titles from Roll7 that were something of a cross between Tony Hawk and Trials. It was all about landing tricks in a perfect sequence to pass small, sharp and well-designed levels that were 2D in nature. Well, Roll7 are amping things up for the third game, OlliOlli World and bringing in the 3rd plane in the process.
With a new graphical style that is akin to something you would see in an episode of Adventure Time, OlliOlli World is offering players a branching world that can be skated and tackled how players see fit. There also seems to be a big emphasis on making this a game that everyone can play, not just the crack players that mastered the first two titles (of which, I was not one)
There is no release date as yet, but you can check out the first trailer, with commentary on the game from the developers themselves, below. One thing is for sure, OlliIOlli World is a game to keep a close watch on, especially if you have a warm glow for the first two games, skateboarding in general or strange talking frogs.

Editor of Player 2, Matt spends his time yelling at strangers as they walk past, imploring them to visit Player 2. Sadly this tactic hasn’t yielded any significant results but he keeps on trying regardless.
