Backcountry is a board game about snowboarding. Game development is an interesting process. The research itself took on it's own process. I did playcentric research to learn about the types of games and game play. Market research on game themes, types, and materials. Once I had an idea I did research on the subject of snowboarding, and as my game conducted research by playing the game myself, adjusting and tweaking until the game play finally worked. Developing graphics was the easy part, yet the effort involved was extensive to keep up with current market trends. By the end of the day developing the game was just as fun if not more fun than the game itself. Enjoy!
