Philly-based cycling video game coming to app store

    Coming soon to the Apple app store: Hipster City Cycle.

    It’s a mobile video game reminiscent of PaperBoy that’ll have players racing through Philadelphia streets on bikes.

    “Your mission is to liberate hipster Binky McKee from the shackles of employment, and help him achieve his humble dream of becoming a penniless cycling legend,” reads a description of the game.

    The developers say they chose Philadelphia as the setting since they met in Philadelphia. It also happens to be the perfect setting for a wild bike ride. Learn how to play in the video above, courtesy of the developers.
