Full Tilt is a downhill mountain biking game for Swibo, a Wellington balance board company. The player makes their way through a winding forest environment, trying to stay in the centre of the path, avoiding obstacles to complete the level in the quickest time possible. The balance board is the direction controller, so the player stands on the board and uses their balancing skills to navigate through the levels.

Making stuff and playing games are two of my biggest passions, so a game design role on Full Tilt was natural for me. The project was challenging due to the intricate nature of Swibo’s platform. This allowed for major growth in my problem solving and communication skills. Being Lead Programmer was also challenging yet extremely rewarding.
