EVERYTHING ELSE! / An on-line bike touring game
« on: February 15, 2011, 09:16:38 AM »
I've created an on-line bike touring game that I call Armchair Biketouring.

My goal in creating the game was to give people an idea of what bike touring is like without all that annoying bicycling! If you are an experienced bike tourists (as most of the people on this site are), you may find that the game doesn't match your experience.

As such, I should let you know that, due to design choices, the game doesn't allow stealth camping. Also, food can be purchased from a grocery store but no allowance is made for cooking. So, a player can't buy bags of rice and beans for $6 and live on it for a week. But, since you aren't spending real money, it shouldn't hurt too much to "splurge" a bit!

I have included weather, terrain, scenery, calorie usage and consumption, bonking, places to sleep, flat tires, broken spokes, budgets, and road angels. I wrote article about the game, if you'd like more information about it.

I'd be interested in any feedback on it.

To run the game, use the link in the first line.
