Bored members of the cubicle-bound workforce have found a bit of relief with Linerider, a Web-based application incorporating fun with physics. Developed by a Slovenian student, the game has users draw lines on which an animated sled rider cruises down. The "toy" has inspired some amateur designers to create some impressive backgrounds, many of which have ended up on YouTube. As it is based on drawing, inXile entertainment figured it would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo DS and Wii, and today acquired the rights to develop Linerider games for the consoles. The games, which will include "new added features," is expected to be released in spring 2007. No other details were mentioned.

It comz out Spring 2008! i cant wait til it comz out, i bet it will hav a stunt mode that lets u do midair stunts an wheeliez, and it might hav music to put on it through Wifi or somthin. CANT WAIT :D
I dont think its ever goin to be realeased :( i would buy it... IF IT WAS EVER OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???!?!??!!?!
If you want to see how this will play on DS and have a pocket pc then download the demo of line rider mobile. It has puzzles and breakable surfaces. The demo is time limited but enough to give you a taste, so you may want to buy it.
I agree with camh91. It is fun for a while, but I don't think it would be worth buying on a console.
This IS gonna be cool altho I might buy it on the DS not on the wii, tracing line with the ds is way easier....
I'm gonna buy it no matter WHAT the price. This is what I have been saving my allowance for! ( I bet it's gonna have wifi track sharing and a puzzle mode, and hopefully, MUSIC.)
lilne rider was the best thing to happen to the web! now on the DS you can take it with you whate ever you go!! all right!!!
I dont know how you are to make a whole game on something like that. I mean come on it is fun for a couple of minutes but a whole game.
"The should release it on the VC...it'll make money that way" said by LprojektST" Nintendo said that they intended to let "independant, small developers" use the virtual console system as a way to release Wii games without the companies having to spend as much on development costs, so it could happen.
Wow imagine making maps and sending them to friends and working on huge ones whenever you feel like it in little chunks, with the precision of a touch screen!!!! XD XD XD XD
This'll be awesome... Hey, maybe they'll do something cool like let nintendo characters cruise your lines, ie mario, link or sonic xD (I know sonic isn't a nintendo character btw)
Wow it must've taken a long time for whoever to draw all those mountains etc... I see kids playing this all the time in class and all they do is draw lines for the guy to go on. They should put this on the ds, I might actually buy it then.
I want a mission mode, get from A to B while avoiding obstacles and completing other goals (like using at least 3 loopings or make at least 2 summersaults) This could be lots of fun! O and I want background graphics and OFCOURSE... I want my Mii riding the sleigh!!!!
lol, I wonder what kind of stuff they're going to add to it...I mean, you could play it from the website with the Internet Channel couldn't you?
nice i cant wait . hope they have the sled, snow bored ,dirt bike , jeep and chair. i realy cant wait this is going to be cool. but i wount pay 50 dollers for it maybe 20
It has to be $20.. Other than being a fun pick-up-and-play game, I wouldn't pay much more for it. I totally wasted 25 minutes of my time playing the online version, and I'd pay $20 to be able to do that no matter where I was with my DS! Ha! Can't wait for this release!
Actually, theres a new updated version of Line Rider on the web with a erase tool, just look it up on google. and btw the news OWNS!!!
