STEEP: Made in the Alps
Mountain sport sim STEEP has just finished a weekend-long Beta, leaving us with mixed impressions; we think there’s an engaging snowboarding game to be found, a little buried under some awkward controls. Nevertheless, the game shows promise, and ambition.
It’s that ambition that’s showcased in STEEP: Made in the Alps, a behind-the-scenes documentary exploring the game and the development team behind it.
The strongest impression we were left with after some hands-on time with the Beta was the drama and majesty of the world of STEEP – and this documentary clearly shows the inspiration behind the game, and some stunning alpine scenery.
We fervently hope that the ambition that’s so clearly articulated in the video translates to the final game. If the dev team pulls it off, it could elevate STEEP to the rarified air of a mountaintop classic.
