Tony Hawk’s nostalgia-driven HD re-imagining has made its way to Steam.

The game is going for $9.99 (R82.70), but if you buy it before the end of the month, you’ll get 10% off.

The downloadable game isn’t an HD porting of the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, but rather a blend of levels from the first two instalments, remade in a brand new engine designed for current-gen technology.

Confirmed playable characters include Tony Hawk, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Nyjah Huston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins, and Tony’s son Riley Hawk.
