Ok so I did indoor surfing yesterday.

Here’s a terrible photo of me doing said activity. Notice my "I have seen some shit" expression.

It’s because I had washed my hair that morning and it was ruined.


Graphics: Water textures were pretty good, had to stare at people watching me though which was immersion breaking


Story: One time a guy a showed me Salad Fingers on his ph-what? That’s not what goes here? God damn.

Gameplay: Incredibly linear, no head-shots, no online capabilities but I like what they did with the board.

Final Verdict: 7/10 GOTY.

Removal of the watermark is a £5 DLC extra.
