Skywire 2: video preview

Comments (38) | Views (780)

JaySkywire 2 teaserMat from Nitrome sent over a short preview video of Skywire 2, the upcoming sequel to one of their most popular games, Skywire. So far it looks like it will be bigger and even better than the original, and is that 2-player versus split-screen I see?! Take a moment and check out the video while we all anticipate the imminent release of this great looking sequel. Watch Skywire 2 video.


Looks awesome! Do we know when the sequel is coming out?


Yay! I'm so excited my head might blow up! Can't believe it's finally about to happen. I've been dreaming of this for ages and now it's a reality!

GAAHHH! If only we had a date...

And was that a multiplayer mode I saw? ...I can't wait!

YES! This is great! My Favourite game ever just got a fantastic sequel!


OMG OMG OMG! I can' t believe this! It's one of the best days in my entire life. Thanks Jay and thanks Nitrome!

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

Look at all the new tricks and traps. The kangaroo's my favorite.

Hot Air 2 had a slightly more defined plot than the original. Do you think it'll be the same with Skywire? What sort of plot can you write for a twisty cable car route?

This looks like it will be the best Nitrome release yet. Very excited!


I wonder if the simple concept of making your way forward whilst avoiding wildlife will stay the same.

I also wonder what other throwbacks to previous (or upcoming?) games there will be... for example, in the original Skywire, there were Roly Poly Hedgehogs, and the two squirrels bouncing the chick...

Skywire is my favourite Nitrome game and I can't wait until this comes out.


Going underwater, the tracks fall apart after you pass them, jumping through the air from track to track, and new level backgrounds! Looks like a lot of fun :D I hope there's more than 20 levels this time...


This looks great, but I hope it comes soon!

Do you think the turtle was a boss?


I think it is as at the bottom right it says Level 10, and I always think of Level 10's as Boss Sort of level.

And Nitromer, your in luck, on the bottom left of a clip in the trailer it says Level 21, so there must be more than 20 levels!

I hope it comes out soon!


I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really want this to come out soon!


When is it coming out? The ostritch is soo cool and the jumping from track to track! Urgh! Im soooo impaitient!

nitromer May 9, 2008 9:17 PM

You're right about Level 21 Zac, thanks! :D I'm getting impatient too :P


No Problem!

I have just sent an email to Nitrome asking them when it will comes out... Has anyone else done this? Any replies?

I hope I will get one soon!


This is what I got back from the Email sent to Nitrome...

Hi Zac,

Sorry but we have no fixed date as yet. It will be out some time in the next month though.




Zac u no that email does it mean may or june?

This is what I got:


Glad to hear that you are keen!

I think we should have a new game out by the end of the week….hopefully a couple of days. Then after that the plan is to launch Skywire 2 about two weeks after that. Don't take this as a guarantee though something could change and it could get put back a bit or possibly brought forward.




I thought it ment that it was May 12 2008 - June 12 2008!

I am not entirely sure though...


Thanks ayotunde!

I hope the game is good!

paulhibs3 May 18, 2008 9:20 PM

I cant wait for skywire 2! I have sent several (2 or 3) e-mails to nitrome.

Secondly ayotunde see that e-mail you got have you replied asking what the new game is even though they probably wont revile.

I await respsones lol unlike annoying nitrome.


[Edit: The next Nitrome game to launch will be... you'll find out very soon, trust me. Keep an eye on the JIG homepage, we'll announce it the minute it's released. About 2 weeks after that you'll see Skywire 2. The good folks at Nitrome are on vacation right now, and that's likely why you haven't received a reply. -Jay]
