It seems like a recent trend on iOS is for developers to band together on projects, putting all of their various resources together to create a better final product. This past July we learned of one such project called Bike Baron, a collaboration between Mountain Sheep, Qwiboo, and music composer Ari Pulkkinen. Bike Baron is a side-scrolling motorcycle stunt game in the vein of the popular Trials games from Redlynx, but ditches the overly-industrial visuals for a more cartoonish look and a heavy dose of humor.
Today, the developers have sent along information regarding pricing and the release date of Bike Baron. You can look forward to the game hitting the App Store on October 20th at a price of just 99¢. They have also sent over a new gameplay video featuring one of the extreme levels in the game, and in this case the word "extreme" seems to mean "really freaking difficult", as you can see for yourself:
I'd like to stress again that this was a demonstration of an extreme level, and you shouldn't expect all of the 40 levels in the game to be lined with explosive barrels, though there should be plenty of danger to be had in the game's normal progression. Also, you'll be able to create levels with as much danger as you'd like using the included level editor. Other features of Bike Baron will include iOS 5 and Universal iPad support, Game Center integration, and enhanced visual effects for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.
We'll be looking to get our hands on Bike Baron just as soon as possible, and while you wait for the game to drop on October 20th you can stop by our forums for a discussion of the game.
