OlliOlli Funded by Sony – While Roll7 Keeps the Rights

Posted by at 2:51 pm on June 14, 2013


A single demo station for OlliOlli, a minimalist side-scrolling skateboarder with surprisingly deep systems at its core, was tucked in the corner of PlayStation’s massive presence in E3’s West Hall. The PS Vita game melds arcade-style gameplay with just a tinge of true skateboarding physics – not as ridiculous as the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series.

Thomas Hegarty, company director at developer Roll7, gave me a quick primer before my demo. “We’re a small team in London, UK – there’s about seven of us. We’ve got a team of about four working on this game,” Hegarty said. OlliOlli, though being funded by Sony, isn’t a Pub Fund game, and Roll7 will publish and retain all rights.
