Extreme downhill freeriding isn’t something that immediately comes to mind when you hear that new mountain bike game is in development, but that’s exactly what Descenders is about.
Developed by Action Henk studio RageSquid, Descenders features procedurally generated worlds. Every risk, jump, whip and scrub – mountain biker speak – will earn you rep as you plummet head first down a mountainside on two wheels, wipeout and you lose everything, you can even throw in the odd trick if you’re feeling flashy.

Flying the flag for Blighty, Mike Rose’s new publishing label, No More Robots will be publishing the game.
