Development Overview

Production Length: 12 Weeks

Roller Coaster Rampage will always be very important for me. It was my first game in the industry. I can officially say that I am a Professional Game Designer now, and it feels awesome. My buddies and I were hired by Pantera Entertainment soon after meeting them at GDC Play during GDC 2012. When we got hired, the team had just finished building a few levels and had an engine all ready to go. Our job was to turn the Tech Demo into a full fledged game, in the smallest time possible so that we could hit the summer release goal.

Within three months, our team of four designers were able to build thirty new levels, completely redesign the entire UI (including the Main Menu and even the sound effects), redesigned the controls, reworked certain mechanics, and completely revamped the gameplay with an emphasis on speed and excitement. We took a game that was nothing but a Tech Demo and turned it into a fast paced, arcade roller coaster simulator. We created a point system and leaderboard system that would encourage multiple playthroughs as players competed with each other for the highest score. The levels were designed with replayability in mind. Players, at any time, can deviate from the "path" of the game and find ways to gain more points than they would have before.
