Hey! We are team Chad Lads, a team of four games designers who love playing goofy games with a lot of character.
Kai is our Team Lead, as well as Programmer and Level Designer.
Emma is our fantastic 3D Artist, who has been working on our characters and environments.
Toby is our 3D Level Artist, and our Skateboarding consultant, giving us a great grounding with his experience.
Xander is our Sound Designer, making our game sound great, as well as providing additional 3D Art.
We’d love to finish our project this year to a great standard, and hope to release it to the public after COMX, we are so passionate about this project, that some of our team members have actually begun learning skateboarding!
Downhill Jam is a Hoverboarding, time trial stunt game, developed by Chad Lads, a team of 4 Designers (and 3 awesome Level 5s!) that are passionate about creating a lighthearted, but challenging game.
Get down the city streets as quickly as possible, popping ollies, grinding and avoiding traffic, to get the highest possible score and beat other skaters. We look forward to publishing our demo at COMX 2021, and hope to include an online scoreboard for the virtual event.
The game features ragdoll physics, smooth controls, and a cartoony art style inspired by awesome games like “Jet Set Radio”. We are really proud of this project, and we hope you enjoy seeing it at COMX!
