Originally conceived for the Synchronized Battle Royale on We Ride the Lines, but failed to finish in time.
This track was my return to scenery in Line Rider after a hiatus of several years - a practice track that accidentally grew into a rather large project. The bare track was largely made in an attempt to get better at blue manuals, and the scenery was largely made to stretch my artistic abilities in regard to consistency and environment. The theme of a structure on the beach was an old idea I had back in 2007 and decided to execute. Every part of the scenery, from the complex structure of boards, to the shading of the abstract first section, to the sand and water, to the sunset and clouds, pushed me to learn new ways to draw scenery in Line Rider, and I think that's the most valuable thing I got out of this project.
