A developer and I were assigned with creating a simple, fun, and addictive game for the London 2012 Olympics. We chose to represent a popular event—the 100-metre dash.
Like many kids of the 90s, this developer and I love old sports games for Sega and Super Nintendo. We respect their simple and engaging qualities, so it felt natural to envision the 2012 Olympics in that style. 16-bit graphics, easy controls, re-playability...it's all there.
