The Latest XKCD Is A Cool Little Exploration Game

Dayshot: The comic-slash-game, called Hoverboard, was created to celebrate the release of XKCD creator Randall Munroe’s latest book, Thing Explainer. It’s a lot deeper than it looks at first glance.

On the surface, Hoverboard is a small platformer where you can race against the clock to collect a few coins as fast as you can. But there’s a twist: with your hoverboard, you can jump an infinite number of times. This means that you can leave the designated play area, and go explore and collect a lot more coins than you can initially find — well over a hundred.
