Description

Grand Mountain Adventure is a beautiful and unique open-world skiing & snowboarding adventure for Android, iOS and soon Steam where you get to explore huge mountains filled with hundreds of challenges to discover and compete in.

History

Grand Mountain Adventure is developed by three snowboarding brothers in Stockholm, Sweden over the course of several years. Everything is made from scratch including game engine, physics engine, music, models, and mountains. The game has since the release gotten stellar reviews and millions of downloads without any paid marketing, including several front-page features on Reddit, Imgur, Play Store and App Store.

Features

  • Multiple ski resorts to explore - Completely open mountains with runs in several directions, large backcountry areas, and functional lift systems to travel around.
  • Vivid environments - Encounter busy runs filled with skiers, bears and wolves prowling around the forests, avalanches, rolling rocks and falling trees.
  • Varied challenges - Improve your skills in technical challenges like Slalom, Super G, Slopestyle and Big Air or let loose your creativity by finding the best drop line, or the quickest path down the mountain.
  • Non-linear gameplay - Ski wherever you want. Ride any lift you like. Progress in the mountains in any order. Try to improve your skills in challenges or just find your own way down the snow-swept mountains.
  • Advanced tricks - Pull a backflip down a massive cliff or throw a Fs 720 Rodeo out from a sketchy tree rail. The tricks includes flips, spins, rails, grabs, and combos to allow for endless creativity.
  • Controller Support - Connect your controller of choice to get the right console feeling.
  • Online leaderboards - Compete with the world record scores by finding the perfect line and shortcuts in challenges.
