Sonic Riders
Platform:
Gameboy Advance
Developer:
Backbone Entertainment
Role:
Artist
Status:
Unfinished, Unreleased
Notes: We were doing a GBA port of Sonic Riders for Sega USA on a pretty tight schedule, and when Sega of Japan saw the game and insisted we add some 3D to it, but still keep the same production schedule, Sega USA canned it.(we were using an Out-Run style game engine) There was no way we could re-write the engine and add all the features necessary and still have it on store shelves the same time as all the other ports. Still, Sega liked what we did before they killed it, and it got us some more work with them.

Below are some samples from this game:

I mostly cleaned up 3D renders on this one. Below is the only original animation I did on the project:
