Super Ski Runner Set to Launch On 4/20 as a "Pay What You Want" Game

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Francisco, CA, (April 12th 2012) - Partiers unite, Ironzilla announces that Super Ski Runner will release as a "Pay What You Want" game for PC and Mac to fulfill your shuffling and raving needs. Super Ski Runner is a simple euphoric experience -- at it's core you collect pills to stay alive, and avoid the dancing trees and rocks. Dancing trees and rocks? Don't forget there's also blaring colorful lights and trance-like music. And then there's the speed -- the game becomes more challenging the longer you last. Think of it as Ski Free meets Bit.Trip Runner.

Super Ski Runner boasts power ups, achievements, unlockable hats, online high scores, and for those willing to donate $5 or more comes the Gold version: 5 secret characters, a digital soundtrack album, an HD wallpaper, Rager Mode, a special extras section, plus your name on the Super Ski Runner web page.

John Funtanilla, the developer of the game and founder or Ironzilla, says, "Originally, I was in talks with several publishers for Super Ski Runner. However many either needed the pills changed and the graphics toned down, or simply didn't want to take on such a suggestive game. Super Ski Runner just wouldn't be the same anymore."

Taking inspiration from business models like indie art game Proun and the Humble Indie Bundle,  John decided to go his own route and find a way so that everyone could play Super Ski Runner the way it was intended, with the hopes that people who love it would support Ironzilla by donating what the game is worth to them.

"The original Ski Runner had a huge and very enthusiastic fan base," John says. "I knew that with Super Ski Runner, I had a gem, and publishing it as a watered down version would be doing them injustice. It's a game made to lift you up when you're feeling down. I want everyone to experience it."

What better way to enjoy 4/20 than to enlighten yourself by playing Super Ski Runner?
