Genius Products has said Line Rider will be sledding onto Wii, DS and PC this summer.

This, of course, is a remake of the popular Internet game that lets you draw your own ramps, hills and jumps, then let a physics-ruled hero loose on them.

However, there will be lots more on offer here. Developer InXile (of comedy RPG The Bard's Tale fame) is adding fresh game modes, more riders, extensive community features and polished creator tools.

The new game also has a storyline. You will take on the role of Bosh, who has to defeat bad-guy Chaz by solving around 40 increasingly puzzling levels. These have been put together by Line Rider champion TechDawg. Who sounds hard.

This will the first game US company Genius Products has published, incidentally, which is why the name is unfamiliar. We've contacted the developer for clarification over who will be dishing it out in Europe.

Those of you eager for this should pop over to the Line Rider website to try the game out, and watch what can be done in a huge selection of videos.
