Snowboarding game Alto’s Adventure showed us the artful side of the endless runner. Follow-up Alto’s Odyssey, due out this winter on iOS and Android, takes the same serene action to the desert sands and skies. Check out a live demo of the game from yesterday’s Gameslice E3 stream.

Eli Cymet, lead producer for development team Built By Snowman, talked with Gameslice host Geoff Keighley about Alto’s Odyssey yesterday at E3, showing off some of the game’s new moves. Wall rides and dynamic obstacles add some upward motion to the downhill boarding game without adding any control complexity — it’s still a simple one-finger game.

Alto’s Adventure is one of the first apps I download on any device capable of running it. Alto’s Odyssey might have swapped snowy woods for sandy deserts, but it looks just as chill as the original. Can’t wait to play.


  • Played a tone of the first one, Zen mode is my jam. Hope they bring it back on this second time around. ??

    I’m not feeling the visuals so much this time around though, not really doing anything for me : (
