Thundra's Race for the Championship

Lea Steenbock

Thundra's Race for the Championship is an Exergame for the Oculus Rift and Oculus Rift S in which players take the role of aerobic athlete and championship finalist Thundra, who is on her way to the Funky Forest Aerobic Championship. However, her opponent Lightning prevents this by stealing the stadium and flying away with it. It is now in the player's hands by swinging the motion controllers to follow and stop Lightning.

The exergame was made with motivational systems in place to keep players motivated to exercise while playing!

Game Design Student with a focus on 3D Environment Art.

What is a good design for you?

Immersive and easy to understand.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Focus on the abilities that are fun to you. Working on a game can be very stressfull so you want to do something that you love and keeps you motivated.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

I felt a rise in productivity due to working on games in different fields of work than just art. The expansion of my horizon enhanced my understanding of game design as a whole.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

Apart from my general love for games as a medium, Game Design combined many of my personal interests and hobbies into one discipline. Creating immersive worlds and experiences has always been something I wanted to do and making games offers the ultimate opportunity to do that.

Say hi!
