Extreme Street Unicycling PC and Mac game

Hi all,

Not sure if anyone has seen this as it has largely been on facebook but Daffodil a rider from the community has been working on a video game aiming to recreate old extreme sport games like Tony Hawks Pro Skater but with street unicycling.


They have done an amazing job so far but they are aiming to make it into a complete game with more levels,riders,tricks,game mechanics etc

They have a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finish the game off by working on it full time. If anyone is interested have a look

Kickstarter Campaign Link if you want a copy or want to donate!

Imagine if the video game were as difficult as actual unicycling. No one would want to play it!

Thats the beauty of video games, you can land things you may never be able to in real life. Similar to Tony Hawks Pro Skater series, I can't skateboard but it gives you that ability

I'm always amused by the belief that playing video games gives someone abilities.

That is why I played GTA (Grand Theft Auto). Now I never buy a car anymore.

It gives you the ability to play video games, which some people enjoy doing. Many games take serious skills and study to perfect as the emergence of eSports has shown

That may be and I also suppose Flight Simulator can help in that regards, but unicycling can't be learned from a computer game. Also they way the character slides on the rail all around the pillar is very unrealistic. So as a game it is prolly fun to play the unicyclist, but I don't expect you can learn much from it.
