Also, there is a key video from lead developer Megan Fox who narrates the first look at the controls. The SkateBIRD video highlights ways to reduce input density. Since this helps players enjoy boarding with the birb.

Players can toggle the ability to push automatically when you hold down the ollie button. This also merges the ollie button with flip tricks / grinds / grabs to reduce right-hand inputs. Letting you alter the game speed to customize their experience however they see fit.
