Diving Gymnastics

Prompted with a weekly theme of “Licensed Game: The Olympics,” I set out with the intent of prototyping a silly, physics-driven high-diving simulator, but then I realized it was just as fun (if not moreso) to flail around underwater. So now, “Diving Gymnastics” exists—a physics-based diving AND underwater gymnastics simulator!

Dive like the graceful swan you are, then swim through the five Olympic rings before emerging victoriously from the water.

Diving Gymnastics was made in about 10 hours for the NYU Game Center’s Prototype Studio course, with the theme of “Licensed Game: The Olympics.”
