Mario Kart has always been a favorite game of mine to play after school with my buds. Alongside Goldeneye, it was the OG multiplayer.
Corridor Digital has taken the popular game franchise and gave it a twist. Mario Kart Skate features CD’s very own VFX guru, Wren Weichman as Luigi. Locked and loaded on a Boosted Boards skateboard, Luigi sets out on a dangerous race to beat Mario’s fastest time. Who knew Downtown LA had such crazy obstacles?
Luigi Wren how many hours he spent on Mario Kart Skate. Let’s just say the 60fps made it quite time consuming.
“I spent a stupid amount of time working on VFX for this video. At least a few hundred hours. Probably half of them in the final week. I didn’t sleep much. Sixty frames per second adds almost 3 times the workload of a typical video.”
