Adult Swim's 'Victorian BMX' Plays Like Excitebike on Acid

Looking to kill some time with the Grim Reaper? Check out Adult Swim?'s new browser-based game Victorian BMX.

The other day I was a robot unicorn jumping around collecting stars in a world that moved too fast. The day after that I was a metal unicorn doing the exact same thing in hell. Today I'm the Grim Reaper blasting metal, sitting on a tiny BMX bike in a world with ludicrous physics that feels a lot like Excitebike on acid. Oh, and there's women pushing baby carriages and men riding penny-farthing bicycles because it's also the Victorian era.

Adult Swim knows how to make insanely twisted and seriously fun games, and Victorian BMX is no exception. It will no doubt lose its novelty after a day or two, but that's the future and right now, my metal-Victorian experience is spectacular. You can play Victorian BXM for free in your browser by clicking here.

Thanks to The Steampunk Tribune for the heads up.
