Set in a dystopian future and taking obvious cues from the seminal 1975 James Caan classic, Rollerball, Rollerdrome from Roll7, the studio behind the luscious and addictive OlliOlli World, is billed as a "a single-player, third-person shooter where players experience the thrill of fusing fluid movements and stylish tricking mechanics with adrenaline-pumping shooter action".

The thing that grabbed me immediately was the game's comic book art style, which looks like an evolution of the Adventure Time style of the above-linked OlliOlli World. It also has a 70s vibe (in keeping with the Rollerball nods), which just makes it all the more alluring.

Here's some official info:
Rollerdrome introduces a distinct retro-futuristic universe with a unique identity. The comic-book inspired art style comes to life with an all-new and fully original soundtrack. The Darksynth musical artist Electric Dragon merges iconic 1970s textures and sounds with modern day driving beats and cutting-edge production to provide a heart-thumping backdrop to the carnage.

The game is set in 2030, in a world where the public are kept distracted from an increasingly sinister political situation by the violence and excess of a brutal new arena sport: Rollerdrome. The lines between reality and performance in this bloodsport are blurred, with participants chosen to compete in a series of gauntlets against the deadly House Players. Competitors in this vicious spectacle attempt to achieve the highest score possible by combining eliminations with flashy tricks while also successfully completing numerous challenges.

Players step into the roller skates of Kara Hassan, a newcomer to this brutal sport. As the mysteries of a wicked tech giant unfold behind the scenes, Kara and the player will have to stay focused on their goal - climbing the ranks in hopes of becoming the next Rollerdrome champion.

“It's been amazing to see this project come to life from the original prototype that received a lot of love online, all the way to the brutal and intense experience it is now - thanks to the amazing work of the team at Roll7" says Paul Rabbitte, Creative Director at Roll7 via press release. “We're really excited for players to jump into Rollerdrome.”

“Roll7 have proven that they successfully come up with truly innovative games that combine original gameplay with an outstanding art style,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “Rollerdrome is another prime example of their innovative spirit as this talented group once again pushes the boundaries of movement with this wholly unique shooter experience.”
The game looks set to reward players who approach the game with an expressive style of play while riding quads, while the action, enemies and level design look super-inviting.

Stay tuned for more on the game, which is slated to release this coming August 16 on PS4, PS5 and PC.
