Description

Just Ski is minimalist skiing game powered by physics. It was created by a single developer working painstakingly one hour a day for six months. The controls are fluid, easy to understand, and once mastered give a real sense of being in-control. The visual design of Just Ski is minimal and pleasant. The game uses high contrast colors to indicate progression and the user interface is purposefully bare.

History

The idea for Just Ski came after the developer first opened the iOS game, Desert Golfing. When Desert Golfing starts there is no splash screen, no menu, no buttons.... just THE GAME! For Jeff, it was awesome and refreshing. Just Ski attempts to invoke that same feeling but with skiing instead of golfing. Like Desert Golfing, when you start Just Ski there are no menus, no text, no buttons... just a small indicator to hint at the player how to control the skier. When the player touches the screen... off they go.

Features

  • A fluid and precise physics-driven control mechanic borrowed from an awesome old abandoned game called Ski Stunt Simulator.
  • Simple minimalist design.
  • Very pick-up-and-play friendly with quick restarts.
  • Epic rigid-body style crashes.
