Imagine a deadly racing game - where you are the pedestrian.
The game was conceived in December 2014, during the monthly Berlin Mini Game Jam. An alpha version was uploaded on GameJolt in February 2015 – since then it has been played by thousands of people and more than 150 let's player, including PewDiePie. Inspired by a fan who modified the controls to use dance pads to play the game, a set of custom jump pad controllers was built and showcased at a number of public events, such as A MAZE. / Berlin and Abu Dhabi, Talk & Play and Join – Local Multiplayer Summit. An expanded version of the game is currently in development for desktop and mobile.
