1080° Snowboarding Programmer Prototyping New Snowboarding Game



Giles Goddard, the CEO of Vitei, and the main programmer and program director of such Nintendo games like 1080° Snowboarding, Steel Diver, and Tank Troopers, revealed that he’s prototyping a new snowboarding game. [Thanks, PushDustIn on Twitter!]

While it’s unclear whether it will follow the 1v1 racing formula of 1080° Snowboarding, Goddard has made clear that he wants to see this game actually released, as he’s spreading the word to find somebody who’s willing to fund the game:


Goddard began his career in the gaming industry at Argonaut Software, where he assisted Nintendo with Star Fox and Stunt Race FX on programming. He helped program Mario’s face on the title screen of Super Mario 64, and programmed 1080° Snowboarding, and after 2002, left to create Vitei where he would help program Steel Diver and Tank Troopers for Nintendo.

Not really a fan of this game, way too slow in my opinion, SSX is what I personally love, but I'd take any arcade extreme sport game right now, this genre has completely dissapeared and it depresses me, it's one of my favorite type of games.

1080 was one of the great games in my life. I must have spent 100 or more hours on that game. I think it is more of a moment in time type game though, not sure I could ever be that excited by a snowboard game again. The only other snowboard series I could get into was Amped.

That was easily one of my top 5 favorite N64 games though: Goldeneye, Pilotwings, Mario 64, Zelda:Ocarina of time and 1080 Snowboarding.

I loved 1080 back in the day. I was hoping Steep would fill that void, but I could only manage 10 minutes with that clunky mess.

Can he hook up with the guys that did skate instead? Imagine a new skate built on the same engine but in a much larger city and potentially a GTAV style online. I would throw so much money at that

1080p was too much of a sim for me. At least for the tricks. Although I had an amazing play experience doing Time Attack on that last track I think.

This is what kind of snowboard game i would love to see again. We already have Steep but we need more of this:
This game was so freaking good. I loved the characters, the items and tracks. I never played the sequel but always meant to play it.

Wow that brings me back in time l.

1080 was awesome



I’m missing old consoles a lot lately. N64 and Dreamcast specifically
I not only miss the consoles, but I miss the eras they were in. Big time. Gaming just seems so vapid nowadays. My favorite year for gaming was 1998. Huge year.

Random thing I remember from 1080 is the way the boarders' jackets would 'ruffle' (is that the right word?) in the wind as you picked up speed. Thought it was such a cool touch and incredible that they thought to put in such a tiny detail with the screen resolution being what it was with N64 games. Fond memories...!
