San Francisco, CA, (April 20th 2012) - Super Ski Runner is obnoxious, provocative, and at the same time very unassuming. It's like Ski Free (remember that skiing game we all used to play on old PCs?) meets every possible hallucinogen in existence. Sure the graphics are cute, but the experience is one of a kind.
"Super Ski Runner is one of those shock and awe type of games -- it's very unassuming", says John Funtanilla, the founder of Ironzilla and developer of the game. "At first you're like cool, this looks cute, I'll just dodge a few trees here and there...Then all of a sudden you hit a few combos and your whole world is blown away. It's an experience you have to see for yourself."
Super Ski Runner is being released for PC and Mac, and boasts power ups, unlockable hats, masks, achievements, online high scores, and even more bonus content packed into the Gold Edition for those who purchase the game for $1 or more: 5 secret characters, higher quality graphics, 4 extra music tracks, secret endings, a digital soundtrack album, 2 HD wallpapers, an exclusive art asset pack, Full screen mode, Rager mode, and your own name forever on Ironzilla's website as a Gold Supporter.
The art was done by Jimp, critically acclaimed artist who has been involved with ArmorGames and hit games like Sushi Cat, This is The Only Level, Shore Siege, and more. The life like menu painting of the fearful Ski Boy was done by Mike Puncekar, featured on sites like Kotaku and in Nintendo Power Magazine.
John claims Super Ski Runner isn't meant to suggest drug use like most people think, but rather an outlet for players to to get energized and positively enlightened. The fallout he experienced with publishers was an eye opener, as many wanted to change the pills to any other other edible and tone the graphics down, but John was unwilling to do either. The "controversial" game now stands as a testament to the many indie developers who are striking out on their own and finding success.
"The original Ski Runner was my first hit game, which I made when I was 16 years old," John says. " I've come a long way since then, and Super Ski Runner is my farewell to the series. I just want to say thanks to our fans, they rock! And Ironzilla is just getting started, we have plenty of more surprises for you this year."
What are you waiting for? Time to celebrate 420 day with Super Ski Runner!
