They really can't do anything right in North Korea.
 
2012-12-20 06:58:53 PM  
Up ahead on the road is a car driven by Dear Leader, but you can never, ever catch up to it, much less pass it.

It can't be any worse than Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, right?

...

Right?

Nice graphics. Is it 2001 already?
 
2012-12-20 09:07:35 PM  
It's been around for over 7 years according to the Amazon reviews.

Many died to bring you that game.

Why isn't Gymkata a videogame?

I'm not sure I want the answer to that. It'd be too depressing any which way.

That's not true. They're pretty good at half-building massive hotels.

You go top speed for 81 seconds then crash into the stratosphere.

They finally figured out how to reach out to the South at least.

A much better Pyongyang driving game (mainly because you can blow up large sections of the city)
 
2012-12-20 10:53:47 PM  
Is there anything the Great Leader can't do? He is such an inspiration to us all!
 
2012-12-20 10:53:53 PM  
Is the game page farked for anyone else?

Oh, come on: Note the realistically empty roads. And the completed Ryugyong Hotel. Can't miss it.

I'd like to try it for shiats and giggles but I don't want to install it on my computer. Maybe in a VM.

I just saw the trailer for Gymkata.  Wow.  How did I ever manage to not see this before?
 
2012-12-20 11:08:25 PM  
Well, at least it can be played on computers with monochrome monitors.

I rectified that very mistake not too long ago. What a gloriously awful film.

Rules of Pyongyang Racer:

- Make forward progress for Dear Leader.
- Have fun knowing for the first and only time what it is like to drive a car.
- You insert grains of rice in the coin slot, you die.
- You stare at educational woman, you die.
- You beat Dear Leader's high score, you get to pilot the next North Korean "satellite" to be launched into space. I hope you're good at pedaling and breathing vacuum.

Was thinking the same thing. Treat as suspected foreign malware.

Only install in a stand-alone machine away from any network connection, and only install from a non-Admin login, then completely wipe the drive afterwards.

I seriously doubt it would be anything Norton couldn't take care of.

What a coincidence! The US military has a war game called "Pyongyang Eraser."

They've created video games before. They're stuffed to the gills with malware.
