“Transvulcania the Game” is going to offer a virtual race in which the players are competing for being the best runner of the legendary Canarian event.
The fact that mountain races are nowadays trendy is certainly true. With millions of followers and fans all around the world, this sport is not a minority-sport anymore. The Transvulcania organisation, in its desire of developing and innovating in the world of mountain races, is going to create the first Ultra running video game in the world, which will be released as “Transvulcania The Game”.
The video game intends to show the world how mountain races are and especially how the Transvulcania is, no matter the age or the place. The video game offers a virtual race in which the player is going to run through the trails of the island, as well as a multiplayer mode, in which the players are competing against other players in order to be the best virtual runner of the Transvulcania. The functioning is going to be simple, as the player will have to choose his own avatar, the country he is going to represent and his gender. With that made, the player is going to prepare himself in order to be the best, as he is going to take some training sessions, have a good diet, or buy the necessary equipment for this kind of races. Then, the player will improve his own level until being able to participate at the Transvulcania, one of the best Ultramarathons all around the world. Once in the virtual race, the strategy of measuring out his energy and the nutrition in the different provisioning is going to be crucial to get to the finish line.
As the counsellor Ascención Rodríguez said, “Transvulcania was always a race at the forefront, and exactly because of this, we decided to continue innovating as we release the first Ultra running video game in the world”. “This is another way to promote the Transvulcania and La Palma beyond our borders”- she added.
