Is it too snowy to ride your own horse this month? Why not give this indoor alternative a try!
Your eyes do not deceive you. This is a game you play as a snowboarding horse, complete with digital whinnies and it’s own theme song. Developer Chris Figueroa is bringing the game to Steam and Xbox in early 2016, after the concept gained popularity back in October 2015 via gifs shared on Figueroa’s Twitter account (@kinifi). Even the prestigious E3 Twitter account picked up the story.
Lesson? Snowboarding Horses are excellent Internet fodder! As previously mentioned, they even get their own theme song, and not just that 30-second ditty in the video. Figueroa’s friend, Jacob Pernell, enthusiastically penned an entire track, which you can stream here:
If you couldn’t tell already, this game is intended to be ridiculous. Figueroa writes in the video description, “Welcome to Snow Horse, the snowboarding game you never asked for, where the points are made up and you are a horse riding a snowboard.” But I think he may have under estimated the excitement in the equestrian community.
Only time will tell. Give the game a try this winter and let us know what you think! In the meantime, you can keep up with Snow Horse updates on its Facebook page.
