A new wind blows through Street Gears as the new playable character Kara becomes playable

Press Release

For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland–26th November 2009. Street Gears, the free cel-shaded in-line skating gets an important new update at the gPotato.eu games portal. From today, players can select a brand new playable character, Kara, as well as a new range of tuning skates designed for riders in search for a better balance between their acrobatic and speed styles.

From today, Park Town has a new arrival. Wild and sexy, Kara is a 21 year old marine biology student at Emberton University who just arrived in Park Town. Looking for independence from her wealthy parents, Kara discovered the street culture and moved to Park Town to develop her passion for skating. In her spare time she enjoys listening to rock music and attending festivals, long walks in the park, and chocolate!

Do you remember Brian, whom we introduced to you in October? After the Full Moon incident, the Government decided that Brian should stay on in Park Town as an undercover agent. Still working for Dr. Brown, he has recently discovered new ways to develop tuning skates. From this early research, three new series of skates now available in the tuning shop.
