Line Rider began as a school project by a Slovenian University student named Bostjan Cadez. But after going online, first at deviantart.com, the game achieved something much bigger. "Once [Bostjan Cadez] put it up on deviantart.com, it started to generate a huge grassroots following," said Chris Keenan, Producer and Lead Designer of Line Rider 2: Unbound. "Since it's such a unique and addictive game, it quickly grabbed attention from media and other fans. I saw my roommates playing it one night and got hooked immediately. The next day the entire office was playing it."
