INTRODUCTION
Alone on a superbike in the wide open spaces... You gotta go - no man knows where - into the smooth new mindframe.

Straddle the saddle, select steering sensitivity, a country and go! Moving at incredible speeds through 100% hi-res landscapes. Nothing to hear but the pulsing soundtrack, nothing to see but the perspective scrolling sightsurround, gliding into mindplay on the awesome Elektraglide machine.

You take fork bends, junctions, tunnels with the bends as fast as you dare. It's all up to you! But you are not alone!!!

Sky and track are strewn with obstacles -slicks to send you skidding, 3D smart globes which tap into your progress and rush towards you. Hit a bend and listen for a rocket - itīs beaming electrostatic right down at you.

And as you're rolling on, time is running out. Hit the gas - you gotta reach a time tunnel. There's no future without it. But once you're through the road rolls on and you're back to the present - alone and on a superbike in the wide open spaces.

Elektraglide - The First Fantasy Racing Epic.
