Franky Morales is one of the most iconic skaters of all time. I remember playing him in a video game when I was a teenager. It’s crazy to think that now we’re friends and have been able to film / skate together several times throughout the years. This is the first part of a longer interview I recently did with him. New clips coming soon! - Brazilionaire.
Previously: FRANKY’S WORLD - The Lost City (PS5) TRAILER - Franky Morales x Ulysse Prom.
Notes: By Blueprint coding, Franky Morales is probably speaking about the Blueprint Visual Scripting system in Unreal Engine ; which is “a complete gameplay scripting system based on the concept of using a node-based interface to create gameplay elements from within Unreal Editor. As with many common scripting languages, it is used to define object-oriented (OO) classes or objects in the engine”.
Franky Morales is working with Ulysse Prom on the game. Ulysse did a lof of kitbashing on Unreal Engine. Kitbashing is about using bought 3d models, to quickly create / prototype more complex environnement. Like using various buildings, roads, assets to quickly create a city ; it’s quite common in the gaming industry or even in movies to create storyboards, demos more effienciently.
Brazilionaire released another video featuring a fellow Rollerblader: Matt Ardine: Everything Everywhere All At Once, Childish Gambino and Rollerblading (Youtube Link).
Franky’s World - The Lost City | PS5. - Videogame coming up In 2023. “Franky’s Words can’t even express my excitement as I release this into the world”. - Ulysse Prom.
“It’s been an incredible 4 year long journey and learning experience for both my partner Ulysse and myself. The game is being built at the moment and is making great progress. We will announce more details in the future, but for right now enjoy the First Premier trailer of Franky’s World - The Lost City”. - Franky Morales.
Roller Champions is a free-to-play sports game developed by Ubisoft Montreal for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. To make it short, it’s a crossover between the Rocket League game and the movie Rollerball. Two teams fight in an arena, to score goals on roller skates.
Game Overview - How to play
Some of the ingame skates have clear inspirations (you can customize them):
From what i saw, no grinds are doable (?) but the modules especially in the practice looks really fun to skate on (check the picture below).
The game is out now, you can check people playing it on Twitch. Visit Ubisoft.com/roller-champions for more informations.
