VR Fixed Gear Racing
Well if you didn't think that any good ideas could be concocted after 8 pints of Stella and 4 Jaeger-bombs, well time to think again. The boys from Just ride it have concocted this little nugget that shows exactly what's achievable riding round the streets of Melbourne instead of being stopped at every possible turn in nose to tail traffic which appears not to have moved in days in a virtual reality street riding challenge.
All elements of street riding are taken into account in this game. Take on your friends in this head to head masterpiece which rewards riders putting everything at risk. Gain much required boosts from riding regularly in designated cycle lanes, overtaking slow moving taxis and beating 100s of squashed commuters by cruising past over-congested trams. Rumours have that future versions will include random drivers turning left without indication giving surprised cyclists little chance to avoid and a special bonus for surviving the dooring gauntlet that is Chapel St in rush hour.
No stone has been left unturned in the creation of this game. To secure your copy just bring $5,000 to JRI headquarters. Alternatively, if you want to really see what Melbourne is like when you dominate the traffic on a bike, get into the shop and get yourself a bike to experience the phenomenon for real!
