Line flyer roots for The Ohio State Buckeyes

January 7, 2007

I’ve always wondered what all these “Line Rider” videos on YouTube (over 11,000 videos — yes, 11,000!) were. Now I know. It’s a game of sorts developed by Bostjan Cadez, a Slovenian University student. The object of the game is to draw “lines” for the Rider to ride a sled, without crashing. You can try it yourself on the Line Rider site. The idea sparked someone else to develop a similar game involving a motorcycle called Line Flyer.

The video above has an added “game” element: it’s about Monday’s National Championship game featuring Ohio State v. Florida. Apparently, the Line Flyer follows college football. The creator of the video is an Ohio State fan. Go Buckeyes!
