Wakeboarding HD Demo!

Scott Hyman's Avatar + Posted by Scott Hyman on Apr 28, 2010 // VP of Publishing, Creat Studios

Greetings again, PlayStation faithful. Scott Hyman from Tik/Creat, dropping by yet again. I hope I’m not catching you at dinner, or breakfast, or while watching Lost or Glee or playing God of War III. But with so much happening here, I just need to keep coming by to tell you what we’re up to.

Wakeboarding HD

This time around, I’m happy to let you know how we’ve been listening to you all. We’ve enjoyed the great reaction to Wakeboarding HD, but we understand how some folks like to try before they buy. Sometimes, you want to taste the new flavor of ice cream before you make the purchase, and the same goes for many video games. We’ve read all your emails, and lots of your comments online, and we’ve responded…

Wakeboarding HDWakeboarding HD

TikGames/Creat Studios is proud to offer a free-to-play demo version of Wakeboarding HD in North America and Europe on Thursday, April 29th. Now, you can discover what all the fuss is about by making high-flying jumps, performing insane tricks, and dodging pesky Great White Sharks before purchasing the full game.

Wakeboarding HD

We’re confident that after playing the demo, you’ll be craving more. Just like the server behind the ice cream counter, we are more than happy to offer a sample of the latest Tik/Creat flavor. And please stay tuned, as there’s always plenty of new flavors, er… I mean new games to come!

Wakeboarding HD

As always, thanks again for everyone’s support. We love making games, and you are the reason why we can do it. Please keep the comments and suggestions coming. As I stated above, we are always reading and listening!

Nice. I’ve been looking forward to a demo for this game. It looks like a lot of fun, but it strikes me as a definite try before you buy situation.

Looking forward to giving the demo a nice workover.

Oh and thanks for the demo. Will definitely be trying it out tomorrow. I’m always looking for quick fun games to kill time before work or whatever.

Every game maker should have your attitude about demos. You get +1 intelligence bonus. I will definitely try and demos make me much more likely to purchase if the game suits me.

Now everyone go find the Crash Commando demo and buy that game too, it’s the best PSN multiplayer IMO.

Scott, I am gonna try this out for sure, but I have a funny story you might enjoy. I am a Cubs fan (and a glutton for punishmentapparently). I was in Boston last Saturday at a wedding and after the reception we got on the train to head to the hotel with a bunch of RedSox fans right after the game was over. Thanks to the open bar, I was jokingly jeering the Sox and even tried to get a “Let’s Go Cubbies” cheer started. I might have even said something about Beckett and Tom Brady scissoring. The whole train was great about it though, they just laughed at the guy in the tux who overindulged at the open bar. +100 for BoSox fans…pretty sure I would’ve gotten stabbed if it was Philly or New York.

    We BoSox fans are a bit more subdued since 2004. Had you tried that in 2003, I probably would have been too angry respond to this post.

    Have faith, halebound00. Our drought ended, and yours will someday. And it will be worth all the heartache, I assure you.
