If you've always dreamed of racing urban DH, but don't quite fancy the urban crashing part, here's your chance to tackle the city gnar on your iOS device instead! Although like most MTB games it seems to fail to deliver a wholly realistic experience, it still looks like a lot of fun. We'll be taking it for a test spin when it drops later this month!

Press Release:

What is INFOCUS Extreme Bike?
INFOCUS Extreme Bike is an arcade first person mountain bike urban downhill videogame, developed by Micropsia Games for the iPhone and iPad, to be released in late February 2014.

What is so great about INFOCUS?
With great graphics and original music, use intuitive controls to shred down crazy circuits inspired by real locations such as Chile, Mexico and Bolivia, where fast urban downhill events take place. Extreme jumps, an exited audience, painful crashes, realistic sounds and slow-motion cinematic gives you the feeling of being a professional mountain biker on the run of his life to take the gold.

You can shred down six different courses that you can unlock progressively if you are successful in completing the race on time. Your skills will be tested as you have to collect hidden items and maintain high levels of focus to avoid crashing. Energy drinks will recover your focus, but it will fade is you go off-course or hit obstacles.

This is the first urban downhill videogame for mobile devices and was fully developed in Chile, home of one of the most famous mountain bike urban downhill competitions in the world: Valparaíso Cerro Abajo.

Who developed INFOCUS?
The game was conceived and developed fully by Micropsia Games, a young independent videogame firm made up of four people:

  • Marco González - Developer, Co-founder
  • Oscar Cerda - Designer and Composer, Co-founder
  • Juan Moris - Art Director, Co-founder
  • Felipe Salvatierra – Developer

Micropsia Games has many other projects, but now is fully committed to make a global success out of INFOCUS, which will attract mountain bikers from all around the world!

How was INFOCUS conceived?
The whole mountain bike videogame idea was a suggestion of Christian Blanco (Rideabike.cl), who proposed us to develop an urban downhill videogame, inspired by competitions like Valparaíso Cerro Abajo and other world class urban mountain bike events.

As we at Micropsia Games started developing the game, we received technical advice about the mountain bike world, types of bikes, styles and other bike-related issues.

What is the future of INFOCUS?
Future releases will keep on improving the game, including new courses, the option of choosing your bike, components, helmet and outfit, in which we expect to have the world's most recognized brands and products.
