Ok fair enough the game is for fun.
I play computer games all the time and in some of those games - I play Role Playing Games like Elder Scrolls or Fallout - you have to walk a lot. In that case I often think "if only I had a unicycle". Also in games like GTA and Just Cause, where they did program riding a bike / motorbike, they just should have added unicycles too.

Just to bring this back to discussion about the game...

This looks INCREDIBLE and I can't wait to see the final version. I really hope this Kickstarter goes well.

The project has been an enormous labour of love for Daffodil, and I really admire the effort and commitment they're putting into this. Single-handedly designing a video game is not easy, regardless of doing that within the niche of the unicycle community.

For many unicyclists/general people today, the old school Tony Hawks games are a source of enormous nostalgia and I hope this is something that loops in many others who feel the same way who aren't into unicycling.

I was never a good skater, but Tony Hawks games were one of my first introductions to street sports. Although unrealistic, they capture the essence of the fun to be had and have undoubtedly led many people to take up the sports in real life, even though the game itself is not a realistic tutorial in unicycling.

I want to apologize to everyone on this forum for acting like a jerk on this thread. I think computer programming is cool. It involves problem solving, same as unicycling. If I were involved in such a project, then someone came along and sneered at it, that would not feel good. Best wishes to the developers of this game. Pinoclean, please keep us posted if you learn anything else!

Will do!

I hope it manages to get enough traction to get fully funded as so many street unicyclists want a completed game, but unless it is picked up by nonunicycling community I think it will be tough!
