Street Outlaws 2: Winner Takes All is a sequel delivering high-octane drag racing in which the Championship takes you all over the US.

I joined Team 6 Game Studio late January as a Level Designer to help with creating the Challenge Maps. Various racing game-modes set in three different environments. As I joined later in development, the environments were pretty much set in stone, but within them I had complete freedom to design tracks for the different game-modes. This also entailed designing the game-modes themselves alongside my fellow level and game designers. Due to the limited time and manpower, I had a stake in all of the created Challenge Maps, and worked on them until release.
