xkcd Launches a Hoverboard Browser Game to Celebrate the Release of Randall Monroe’s New Book ‘Thing Explainer’

xkcd Hoverboard Game

xkcd has launched a hoverboard browser game to celebrate the release of creator Randall Monroe‘s new book Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words which we have covered previously. The book explains complex ideas using only the 1,000 most frequently used English words.

Players move the stick figure riding a hoverboard using the arrow keys, but the world of the game is much larger than it appears at first.
