For the first time, award-winning games Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey will be available as one bundled experience on the Epic Games Store, Xbox, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The Alto Collection brings both critically acclaimed games to a whole new group of players who will finally be able to see what millions of others have discovered as they explore the ivory snows and the endless desert on the big screen in one collection.

Join mountain shepherd Alto and friends as they set out to rescue their escaped llamas and find the adventure of a lifetime. In this collection, players will journey across the beautiful alpine hills of their native wilderness and soar above windswept dunes in a fantastical place far from home. Each procedurally-generated run provides new inspiration and a fresh set of challenges that seamlessly blends our unique landscapes together.

Throughout the journey players will meet new friends and escape adversaries with clever combinations of expertly timed inputs. Each backflip and successfully landed trick grants a temporary speed boost; misjudge the timing of a backflip or the execution of a jump, and find yourself in a crash landing at the end of your run. As players progress through the terrain, they’ll earn upgrades, harness new abilities, and uncover the many mysteries that each game hold.

“Since Alto’s Adventure first launched in 2015, fans have been asking to play the game on pretty much every platform imaginable,” said Ryan Cash, founder and creative director of Snowman. “I’m so excited that we’re finally going to have both Alto games accessible virtually everywhere.”

“It’s such a thrill to see how far Alto has come from his humble beginnings – even though Adventure started out life on a tiny screen, we’ve always believed the minimalist and immersive sensibilities of both games translate wonderfully to PC and consoles. We’re so happy to finally get this opportunity to share our games with a wider audience,” said Harry Nesbitt, lead artist and developer.
