Do You Love BMX?
Do you love to ride BMX? Do you love actions sports? Did you enjoy playing legendary games like “Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2″ or the “Skate” series? Do you love BMX culture and other action sports?
We do too!
Feeling the real sensation of riding a BMX, pulling awesome tricks, enhancing and customizing your bike, competingagainst other bikers online and much more in a game, that would be AMAZING!
For a long time there has been a lack of BMX games on the market. All of the legendary BMX games have long been outdated. How long until a new BMX game arrives and takes advantage of new gaming technology?
We have good news for you. Right now we’re working hard to make this happen. Our game is intended to you, with real movements, accurate physics, logic controls, and a modern 3d engine running high quality graphics. We’re going to bring BMX games to the present, and we want to do it with you.
It’s called BMX The Game
Why Should You Care?
If you enjoy BMX, you’ll appreciate what kind of game we’re creating: an amazing world where you can use the editor to create your own places to ride whether it be park or street, even dirt. You can challenge other bikers online to compete in championships or races. Maybe just roam freely exploring the expansive city to find street spots and hidden parks, all while capturing amazing footage. In BMX The Game you can customize each part of the experience: bikes, characters, set pieces, clothes, riding styles, physics modes and much more.
It’s a game to: create, share, exchange and enjoy your creativity with the online community. This is the game that we have been dreaming of for years.
We’re putting alot of hard work into game graphics, looking to achieve the highest quality with the greatest realism possible on each platform. Whatch the action how ever you want with first person views, third person, sport cameras attached to the bike, or even cameras controlled by a second player in real time.
A perfect replay system will allow you to enjoy your creativity and use a variety of cameras, lenses, photographic effects and filters to record your sessions or your friends’ sessions to share with the community through Youtube.
Ride freely through the city finding new spots, gaining experience, agility and strenght, and learning new tricks. Not only can you do it alone but you and your friends can also form your own online crew.
Then challenge other online riders around the city, join championships , or be creative capturing amazing footage and sharing it with the community. There are even hidden challenges scattered about the city. All this activities will earn you credits which you can then use to improve your bike, unlock content and buy new stuff for your character.
BMX The Game has hundreds of bike pieces from famous BMX brands to build up your bike with, what ever you want to ride: regular BMX, 24″, 26″ or even miniBMX it’s there. Adjust all the bike details according to your preferences like gyro, brakes, pegs, seat, colors, stickers …
You can choose from a selection of Pro riders as a character or create your own custom character, with branded apparel, footwear and accessories, even customise their riding style too.
We’re making all this and more in order to allow you to fully personalise your experience with BMX The Game.
We have started the process to bring BMX The Game to consoles, both next gen and current gen. This means the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. We feel console versions are a must, but as an indie team without a publisher we need to achieve certain goals before this can happen.
Development for consoles has a cost (acquiring licenses and hours of dedication) that we can’t attain right now, but this is not a technical issue. What we need to do is achieve at least 5,000 pre-orders to increase our budget enough to start the development for the various console versions. The wonderful side of this is that we already have a strong amount of pre-orders done right now. Sooner or later BMX The Game will be available on consoles. It’s now up to all of us to promote the game and make it happen.
All backers that have chosen (or will choose) the Full Time Rider tier or above will get the console versions when they are available at no extra cost.
The beauty, creativity, fun and variety of the BMX universe into a game
Why Do We Need Your Help?
We have a lot of ambition and hope for what BMX The Game could be. We don’t want to make a small game. We want to make the game that we want, the game that you want, the game that BMX deserves. Making games costs serious money, but if everything goes well, the community is going to support a lot of awesome content over the years.
We’re an indie team from Barcelona and we have experience in 3d development, but the most important thing is: we are BMX enthusiasts. We already invested about $60k and more than 18 months on this. Our team has grown with professionals from around the world (who also are BMX lovers) and companies that want to support the game. This gonna be great with the help of all.
Why Should I Pre-Order?
You get to be part of this game. The game is currently scheduled to be released 2015, but we’re going to release an early version this summer, and that’s going to be available to our early supporters only. Also we’re going to release a sneak peak of the early access version pretty soon only available to our early supporters.
The early access version is a basis on which we will continue building the game, so your feedback on what works and what sucks will be vital.
Involve yourself in making something you want to play!
We’re making this game without a publisher and this gives us a lot more creative freedom, but to do that we need to find the funds elsewhere. Pre-ordering really helps us make the game you really want. Your support is absolutely vital to this game!
You get to communicate directly with us to make sure we’re making the game you want. By backing us now, you get to access to exclusive updates about the game development and you get to put in your word on the game design. Want a specific game mode?

No compromises made for appealing to the mainstream – this one is for BMX lovers!
A Great Deal.
It’s a great deal that we want to give to our friends. The final game will cost more than pre-ordering, so you’re saving money by supporting us now.
Pre-ordering is also your chance to get many neat options that are not going to be available later – exclusive areas, bikeparks and bikes, a chance to be featured as game character, listed in the credits or access to our private shop with discounts. There are also digital extras like exclusive wallpapers, soundtrack and those might not be available later.
We want to build a great community around BMX The Game. Our early supporters are going to be its stars and we’re going to make sure they’re recognized with special community roles and access to private areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
Whatever you want to know is likely answered here. If not, ask away on the forums!
When is the game coming out?
Late 2015. However, now you can pre-order the game and enjoy the early versions of the game during its development.
What platforms is "BMX The Game" going to be released on?
We’re making the game for the PC and Mac first, and we’re also working on Android and Iphone versions. We’re triggered to get the game on consoles. Indeed we’re able to program for current-gen and next-gen. A consoles game is harder/expensive to release than for PC/Mac or mobile phones. The game needs a really big support and an important amount of funding to get Sony’s and Microsoft’s licenses. The things are going really good – more than we expected – so we’re confident that BMX The Game will be for consoles in the future, but we don’t have estimated dates.
What engine are you using to build the game?
We’re using Unity3D because we’re well experienced on it. It’s a very good engine that allows us to work in multi platforms at same time and it’s growing a lot in features.
What are the minimum and recommended system requirements?
As a principle, the game is going to run great on 2-3 years old PCs, which is what we’re developing it on. The mobile phone version requires last mobile generation, we’re using Iphone5s and Samsungs Galaxy S3 for tests.
Does it have multiplayer?
Multiplayer is a huge thing for us! and we aren’t thinking just in multiplayer online, we talk about private servers and splitscreen up to 2 players too. Also we’re testing multiplayer between platforms.
I have a great idea for a spot/bikepark/game mode/other coolness!
Sweet! Let us know on the forums.
Will the game be completed no matter how much or little money is rised through pre-orders?
Yes. We’ve got everything together for the content in the basic Alpha version already. That version of the game will be released for sure.
