Indie skating series OlliOlli grinding into physical retail

Indie skating games OlliOlli and OlliOlli 2 will be available to physical retail this summer.

Developer Roll7 has teamed up with publisher Badland Games UK to release the two skating titles physically for PlayStation 4.

OlliOlli launched digitally in January 2014, and to date has been downloaded 750,000 times. Its sequel, OlliOlli 2: Welcome to OlliWood, followed in March 2015 and has sold over two million units.

Two SKUs will be available – the 24.99 Epic Combo Edition, collecting both games, and a 14.99 standalone boxed copy of OlliOlli 2. These SKUs come with behind the scenes content, as well as the second title's soundtrack.

As an indie developer, you only really consider putting your product on the digital market and massively overlook a traditional market that's still much bigger than digital,” Roll7 director Simon Bennett (pictured, above right) told MCV. It's a way of reaching a new audience that may not have seen OlliOlli over digital platforms.”

Badland Games UK country manager Ben Stevens (pictured, far right)added: There's an appeal for existing OlliOlli fans that want a bit of insight into how the game was made. But also, there's appeal for new fans as well to sample what is a great and hugely successful game from an iconic British studio.”
