Hello everyone! We are Daniel (DannyHellfish), Jan (DrWDSo) and Noah (Noah_megagon) from Megagon Industries – a three person studio from Berlin – and our Downhill Mountain Biking Game “Lonely Mountains: Downhill” will come out on the 23rd of October for PS4 after 4 years of development.
In “Lonely Mountains: Downhill” it’s about you and your bike against the mountains. It’s not a race against other riders – instead the mountains are your boss-enemies so to speak. Everyone of our four mountains features several trails and each trail has different challenges and difficulty modes.
Overcoming challenges allows you to unlock new bikes, trails, paint jobs and outfits and even a night mode.
What makes Lonely Mountains: Downhill special?
-> Responsive controls: We spent most of the first year of development focusing on the controls and the camera system.
-> Virgin Nature: We didn’t want to have barrier tapes or spectators cheering you on. Instead it’s just you and peaceful nature.
-> Find your own way: Each trail has a scenic route you can follow, but to get good times you need to find the best shortcuts.
-> Detailed low poly look: The game has a low poly look but is very rich in details and uses a lot of modern post-effects and real-time lighting.
About us: Jan (DrWDSo) started the game in Unity 4 years ago and did the gameplay programming, shaders and technical side of the game. He also created the rider and did all animations. Daniel (DannyHellfish) is mainly responsible for the level design, UI design and programming as well as some environment assets. Noah (Noah_Megagon) did most of the environment assets and is also responsible for the level art.
A year ago, we partnered with the awesome folks from Thunderful (https://www.thunderfulgames.com/) who are handling the publishing of the game, working together with Retroid (https://retroid.com/) who are handling the PS4, Xbox One and Switch versions.
Here are some links to get more info about the game.
