Silent Bay StudiosI spent a lot of time playing Skyboard, the greatest 3D online game ever released by Silent Bay Studios. I had recently the opportunity to chat with Leonardo Montecamozzo, General Manager of the company, who was nice enough to answer a few questions for FreeGamesNews readers.

FreeGamesNews: Can you give us a short introduction about yourself and tell us a little about Silent Bay Studios?

Leonardo: I’m the general manager of Silent Bay Studios, I’m 39. Silent Bay Studios is an Italian independent game developer, founded in Genoa three years ago by a team of professionals with a long experience with real-time 3D games.

FreeGamesNews: How many people are working at Silent Bay Studios?

Leonardo: A dozen in-house, plus a small number of external professionals, aged from 20 to 40.

FreeGamesNews: Silent Bay Studios is specialized in 3D real time application: where does it come from?

Golf Ace Hawaii

Golf Ace HawaiiGolf Ace HawaiiGolf Ace Hawaii is the latest game created by the talented folks of Silent Bay Studios from Italia (check out the amazing Skyboard).

Golf Ace Hawaii is – as you can guess from its name – a golf simulation game. The game has two types of game modes: single player and training mode. Select your character, select your opponent and then enjoy the beautiful 9-hole course.

Playing Golf Ace Hawaii is relatively easy once you master the controls (that’s why there is a training mode!). Aim your swing with the arrow keys (press V to view the course map, it helps!). There is a meter at that bottom of the screen to determine the force of the swing and accuracy with which you connect to the ball. Press the space bar to start the power bar, press it again to choose the power and press the space bar a third time to set the accuracy. Don’t forget to check the wind direction indicated by a pink arrow in the top right corner of the game window.

When you’re right near the hole, a grid shows up with sliding markers that helps you see the slope in the green.

Overall, Golf Ace Hawaii is an amazing Shockwave golf simulation game. The 3D Graphics are top-notch, and the game has it all. One word of warning though: this game requires a more-than-decent computer (especially the graphic card) to run smoothly.

Have fun!

SkyboardSkyboardSkyboard is the latest game developed by the Italian team from Silent Bay Studios and has just been released on Miniclip.

Skyboard is a fast 3D racing game involving four skyboard riders over the city rooftops.

First of all, choose your rider and then enter a new tournament. A tournament is divided in nine different races in three categories:
– Competition: try to be the first one to the finish line.
– Collection: collect as much rings as you can as fast as you can.
– Elimination: At the end of every lap, the last rider is eliminated.

Simply use the arrow keys to control your rider, avoid the green toxic smokes that slow you, and try to use speed boosts and shortcuts to defeat your opponents.

Let’s go straight to the point. If the game is suited for a young audience, the team working on Skyboard did an absolutely incredible job with all the work they’ve put together here. 3D graphics and animations are breathtaking and the game runs very smoothly. The slow-motion sequences during the race are very impressive and are a nice addition to the game, at least for the first few minutes; after that, I recommend you turn the video camera off in the main menu to keep your attention on the race.

Overall, Skyboard is a new truly amazing racing game that you can play for free in your favorite browser. Have fun!
