Leverage from Papaya’s previous free roaming 3D engine, Utopia, will allow Whirl Tour to feature one of the most advanced interactive environments ever seen in adventure/sports titles. In each level, there are scripted animation events that a player can trigger and interact with. For example, the player can collide into the base of a radio tower, and send it toppling over. The result is a very long grindable edge that spans across several houses in the suburban neighborhood. In another example, the player can grind along a large propane tank, setting off the gasses inside. A humungous explosion rips the tank apart, quickly creating a half-pipe with the debris. These special events will be featured in the demo mode for the player to learn.
