A game about overcoming social problems through life

During my exchange in Finland in 2017, I worked on a mobile game called All Downhill From Here. It is a level-based downhill runner with a unique feature. The controls change continuously during the game, to add an extra level of complexity. This feature really sets this game apart from all the other mobile (endless) runners.

The story of the game is something else too. The game follows the life of a little guy called Greg, who starts off as a toddler and ends as an elderly man in a wheelchair. During each level, one of his “problems” gets solved by racing down the hill as soon as possible. The problems range from being late for the coolest party of the year to forget to pay taxes at the end of the month.
