Client: Natural Motion
Platform: XBox / iPhone
After the success of Backbreaker on iOS, Natural Motion started work on an NFL branded game with similar gameplay to Tackle Alley. Natural Motion’s plan was to use the same stadiums from Backbreaker but create a new NFL player with 32 team uniforms.
The model needed to be created at different level of details for optimisation on the mobile platform. We started with the highest resolution at 12,000 polygons and created 4 other reduced versions with the last model at a mere 120 polygons. The final asset came complete with diffuse, specular and normal maps and 3 different skin tone textures. We also delivered uniform sheets for all the 32 teams to help speed up the approval process.
Once the model was approved, we finished the project by skinning the character to the rig provided by Natural Motion.
