Adventures in Bicycling was a full-length CD-ROM
commissioned by the city of Greeley, Colorado as part of a
valiant campaign to educate kids about the importance of
bicycle safety whilst keeping them awake at the same time.
In the game, players had to successfully navigate their
bicycles through Anytown, USA, stopping here and there to
meet up with many strange and interesting characters. Each
character had a safety lesson to impart, after which the players
were tested on what they'd learned and then sent on their way.
Official printable certificates were given out to players who
made it safely all the way across town.
This game was built in Director and most of the screen elements
were painstakingly crafted pixel-by-pixel. It was also my first
exciting - yet humbling - opportunity to provide the voices for
some of the characters in the game.
All artwork was co-created alongside fellow animator/artist
