Roll out with ‘Skully’! Coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC August 4th!
Skully looks to be one of those games that’s a needed break from all the fast-paced shooters and lengthy RPG battles most of us are used to this time of year. The idea of Skully grabbed me, the visuals and gameplay keep me from rolling away. You play Skully, a re-animated skull that rolls around, find some ramps and bridges, collect little items, oh and need to save the island by solving puzzles and transforming into really awesome creatures with different abilities by rolling into a pool of magical clay. Yeah, you’re interested now. It looks fun to play, and damn gorgeous too. I wanted to make a joke about being ‘headstrong’ but the press release beat me to it. Check the news below, the trailer, and get ready to roll on August 4th!
Indie publishing label Modus Games and developer Finish Line Games today shared a first look at Skully, the story of a reanimated skull’s second chance at life. The action-adventure platformer that sees Skully on a quest to stop a simmering war between feuding siblings, rolls onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One on August 4, 2020.
Summoned by a local deity desperate for peace among his kin, Skully can sculpt new abilities from pools of magical clay found throughout the lush island he has washed up on. Gameplay in Skully’s debut trailer shows just a few ways the headstrong hero’s clay-boosted forms can open up new areas of the unpredictable landscape.

“We fell in love with the story and the madcap mechanics behind it,” said Shane Bierwith, EVP of global marketing at Modus Games. Followed Christina Seelye, CEO of Modus: “To say this game is unique is an understatement.”
“We’re really excited to share Skully with the world,” said Daniel Posner, CEO of Finish Line Games. “We think a lot of people will connect with the game and its heroic journey of a seemingly unimposing character destined to accomplish great things.”
