Frank Garcia, CEO of Cycligent, said, “As the only physical eSport, we knew it was important for everyone to have a shot at winning. Some people are just more physically fit than others, and that would discourage some people from playing. Physical Equalization™ makes it so anyone can play and get immediate fitness benefits, while also having a chance to win large cash prizes.” One of the other benefits of riding physically equalized is that it combats doping and cheating, which plagues cycling training apps, and the sport as a whole.
CVRcade also has other unique features that will allow users to control both their gaming and riding experience. Players can customize their tracks, choose themes, create events, and take advantage of other gamification such as using power ups, drafting, steering, skidding, crashing, and even utilizing wind speed and gradients. The game also contains audio and video channels, allowing players to support each other’s fitness and racing efforts.
Players, using ether Windows or Mac computers, have two online gameplay options. They can play ‘non-physical’ using a standard computer, with a keyboard or game controller. Or they can go ‘physical’ for the ultimate blood, sweat, and tears fitness experience riding on an actual bicycle hooked to an electronic trainer and PC. CVRcade players can also compete for $25,000 in the upcoming CVRcade World Cup tournament which begins October 8th. Tournaments are seasonal throughout the year.
