After several years of work, Barspin Studios, a passionate team of BMX enthusiasts, has announced BMX The Game. The new era for BMX games, will go on sale on August 28, via Steam Early Access.

During this phase of development, a large number of planned improvements will be made, in addition to the community’s demands to receive the maximum possible feedback for its incorporation into the final version.

  1. Wowzers!!!! This looks good. Skateboarding and bmx games making comebacks. Love it. 
    The tricks look a little rigid but all in all it looks like it could be good. I always get a little excited when sports games are made by the people that love the sport.
    This article got the game on my radar and was going to purchase today but reading the steam reviews......yikes. sounds like the games been in development for 7 years and abandoned then resurrected twice. The potential looks great and I hope the devs are really planning on seeing this through but as of now it sounds barely playable. I like supporting early access games but 7 years sounds more like a cash grab then an investment in a good game down the road.  I'll be following to see if anything changes cause I'd love for this to turn out well.
    We need a new BMX game on console. Dave Mirra's Freestyle BMX might just be my favorite extreme sports game ever, and Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX wasn't too shabby, either.
    Those games were out around 2000-2002, about the same time as Tony Hawk, SSX, Sled Storm, Amped, etc. Those were the absolute glory days for extreme sports games.
