It's just as boring as the description promised. Fortunately you can leave the game on as long as you want and come back to it later. However if you close the window you will lose your progress.

Ha ha this is the oddest videlectrix game yet! It goes by increments of 0.01 km, and you have to get to 50?? What do you get if you beat it, and is it even possible? (Assuming you left your computer on all that time and did get to it) Stuff to wonder.

From a technical standpoint, I tested a 0.01 km section and took 41 steps. 0.01 km is 10 meters, or about 33 feet. So this person is takinig really short steps! For me I walk with kinda long strides....and would take 11 steps for 10m. The style they use for walking- leg has to be straight when touching round- looks nothing like that. The 20k/50k walks are very bizarre track and field events. Also it's not done on the track but rather through a course like the marathon.

It just flashes "FAULT!" or something whenever I try to move.

Update: I figured out it.

This...is...the most...RIDICULOUS game EVER! But I did have fun customizing my racer - he had light blue skin, tall bright green hair, pink shorts, orange shoes, a black shirt, and I named him "rhunning rhonda" (bad spelling on purpose).

What did you figure out? I get the FAULT! thing, too.

Edit: Okay, I reloaded it and it worked. Bizarro.

Just wondering if anyone has "started feeling faint" or "had to eat" yet. And did anyone notice that the 9's are actually lower-case g's? Is the default name always "Steak Styles"? Wow, a lotta questions. Too bad I have to work today or I could find out for myself.

At the end it reads "You placed 3rd" with two other people standing on first and second.

I cheat. I use the seek bar. :p

Amen to that, Fire Bird. I only got up to about 0.82K before I finally gave up. If anybody out there can actually manage to show the patience to walk the entire distance of 50K, they're a much better person than I.

I get the general impression that Kid Speedy could end up being an awful lot like this game.

Awesome music. Of course, not as good as Duck Gaurdian.

I got to 0.06 as my highest distance. Man. This game is slow.

I used the seek bar for that too. Like on the Awexome Cross page in the Wiki, there is a picture of the winning scene that I took a snapshot of by using the seek bar.

It would be much more fun if it wasn't a "racewalk" and you could actually run

I'm up to 5.60 K, which might be the farthest of anybody yet. I discovered four new signs, which I added to the Wiki page. I'm hoping to find another big secret like the 1K thing, but since nothing happened at 5K, my hopes are dwindling...

After about 1.1K my hand got sore, so I wrote a macro to do the walking for me. I'm still sitting here and watching it, though, which proves my insanity sufficiently.

Nothing at 10K either. I'm disappointed. I thought this would be more like Hallrunner - a little something in there to reward the incredibly patient.

Welcome to the forum, Tim333! (My name's Tim too)

I was thinking someone around here ought to know how to write some sort of program that does it for you like that. So I guess you have, and finding new signs is interesting. I did 0.20k and then gave up.

Anyway, it's bizarre how you can select so many colors/styles for the walker. Reminds me of why I hadn't liked super smash brothers melee as much as the original- there were like a thousand different modes, it was almost like you used the gamecube's power to power an 8-bit super mario bros. game with ten thousand levels. What makes the game so funny is because it's sadistically difficult.

Any of you hawks wiating to pounce on a fellow TIm for double posting, look at the times he posted. Anything within "about 3 hours" is double posting, but more isn't. (Or with either a post or some significant event between, like the time it takes to get to 10k.)

I got up to about .03, and finally went,' what the crap, I'ma gonna play Peasants Quest' This game is utterly slow. If anyone actually walks the entire 50K's, let me know what it looks like.

I stared at the screen for a minute reading the wiki article. Then I played the game.

I thought to my self, "Oh my gosh, what the crap has Videlectrix invented now?!?"

My first reaction when seeing this was "Dear lord, they actually made this game?" I got to like 0.30 before quitting.

Of course not, we're used to watching 4-minute cartoons. :mrgreen:

That's what I wanted to know. I thought maybe the person just made the skin color the same as the hair color and gave his character an afro. It gives the visual appereance of a big head. If someone knows how to really get a big head mode please tell us.

I thought the concept of a game existing like that is funny but I never got to one. Does anybody have a flash fsat forword thing?
