Back in August I had my mind blown–literally blown!–when I laid my eyes on the animated .gif splendor of Unicycle Hero from developer Unept, creator of one of my favorite mobile games Level With Me [Free], among others. The idea in Unicycle Hero is that you're competing in traditional track and field events like javelin and shot put, and some not-so-traditional events like competitive table flipping and hitting a giant 8-ball with a giant pool cue, but you're doing these things while traveling on a unicycle. I mean… do I really need to go on? This is obviously the future of competitive sports. Maybe the trailer for Unicycle Hero will get you as excited as I am.

Obviously trying to balance yourself on a unicycle while performing these amazing athletic feats only adds to the difficulty and challenge, meaning this is the exact type of event to weed out all those regular humans and see who is truly ready for our unicycle-bound future where our legs are replaced by unicycles. You can help out your cause by buffing up some stats from money you earn in events, with both a Career mode and Practice mode to help you hone your unicycling skills. It looks terribly silly and right up my alley, and today Unept announced on Twitter that Unicycle Hero will be gracing us with its presence on iOS on January 31st, 2018. So start mentally training right now if you want to be ready to compete in what will no doubt be a future Game of the Year contender.
