OlliOlli Rolling to PS4 and PS3

OlliOlli PS4

Well, it’s been quite a rollercoaster for us at Roll7 over the last few months!

Our submission process last year was pretty hardcore, with many a pizza-stained late night at our Deptford HQ, London. The team was pretty much broken by the time OlliOlli came out. We had broken down everything that was ‘wrong’ about the game to such an extent that we had managed to successfully convince ourselves that the game would most likely be a flop, a mediocre launch at best…

We’ve finally finished OlliOlli, and what’s even better, we now have a release date: January 21st!

As you may know, this our first PS Vita game, so it’s been a big challenge for us – a challenge that’s been well worth it (and we hope you’ll think so, too). We originally planned to launch before the holiday, but due to some technical issues we had to push back. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who patiently supported us throughout 2013, including fans, press, and all the crew at PlayStation – especially Shahid and Spencer.

Player physics have been tweaked, we’ve redesigned a ton of grindable assets and we’ve also settled on the final modes of the game (there are four in total!).
