Hipster City

“Hipster City Cycle is a pixel-art bike race adventure set on the iconic streets of Philadelphia. Your mission is to liberate hipster Binky McKee from the shackles of employment, and help him achieve his humble dream of becoming a penniless cycling legend. Customize your fixie, and take to the streets as you daringly weave through downtown traffic, challenge rival cyclists, chow down on a few cheesesteaks, and track stand your way to city-wide fame.”
This iPhone/iPad game, Hipster City Cycle looks like a fantastical mash-up of all things "hipsterdom". iPhones + Fixies + mobile games + throw-back pixel graphics. Is this real? Does it only exist in Brooklyn? Nope. It's set in Philly. It seems like something that would only exist in Portlandia or in the mind of a guy wearing a tuque in summer.

The store description only adds to the idea this thing is a parody, but it isn't. Get yours today for just $1.99.
