Hoverboard, an xkcd Game

Randall Munroe posted an interactive xkcd comic yesterday that’s a video game called Hoverboard. I played it for a short time, but I gave up because I was busy (it’s Thanksgiving week, after all). I do like how encouraging it is: Once I got the result “You got 0 coins in three seconds. You successfully avoided all the coins!” Heh. Then today, I see that the opening screen is just a tiny part of a massive game world you can explore if you take the time. If you’re skeptical, here’s a scrollable map, although you may want to wait and see what you can find on your own before peeking. There’s supposedly a story involved that only becomes clear as you progress through the game.  

The game is a promotional tie-in for Munroe’s new book Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words.  -via Boing Boing
