…Hockem is sitting with an attitude?

Hockem Trick

It’s difficult to create a new sport from scratch, but SALZIGdesign is trying to do just that with Hockem.

The sport is based around the use of a Sporthocker, which is equal parts sports equipment and furniture.


Tricks involve casting, catching, balancing and (of course) sitting on the Sporthocker, with the end of a move signified by the sit. Think of it as a combination of skateboarding, parkour, hacky sack, flatland BMX, and… sitting.

Right now Hockem appears to only be popular in its birthplace of Germany, and perhaps a few other European countries that the Hockem team has traveled too, but given the relentless quest to find the next best thing and get it sponsored by RedBull and added to the X Games, I can only imagine that it’s just a matter of time before this extreme seat makes its way to the US.


…It’s Movie Monday: Parkour Motion Reel?

The Parkour Motion Reel shows that with a little post-production, a lot of drawing ability, and a ton of patience, you can create something truly unique that brings a few simple sheets of folded paper to life:

…You can choose your own freerunning adventure?

Damien Walters and Livewire have teamed up to create a very unique ‘choose your own adventure’ style freerunning game on YouTube.

To play, just pick your person and then pick their moves as they work their way through the city. Since freerunning/parkour are impressive on their own, adding in a bit of choice makes it even more fun to watch:

…Mirror’s Edge 2D is amazing?

Mirror's Edge 2D

By now you’ve probably heard of Mirror’s Edge, the free running/parkour game that is soon to debut for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

However, if you’d like to get in on the action a little early, then check out Mirror’s Edge 2D from Borne Games.

Made by the same people that created the Fancy Pants Adventure, Mirror’s Edge 2D is a free flowing Flash game that closely mirrors the gameplay style of Mirror’s Edge, only in 2D.

The goal is to run, jump, climb and slide your way through the level in a quick but creative way, collecting points and other goodies along the way.

Right now the game is still only in Beta, so you only get one level, and there still might be the occasional bug or two, but there’s definitely promise here, and it’s still fun to play as is, so head on over and give free running a chance.
