Finke Desert Race Game (FDRG) is a mobile racing game (bike and off-road vehicles) where the player is tasked with dashing through the tumultuous Finke desert at the highest speed possible in order to win. Each player is timed differently for the duration of the race.
FDRG is inspired by the real-life Finke Desert Race, an off-road, multi-terrain two-day race for bikes, cars, buggies and quads through desert country from Alice Springs to the small Aputula (an aboriginal) community. The race started in 1976.
It has been held every year since then on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June. “Finke” is commonly known as one of the biggest annual sporting events in the Northern Territory and has the reputation of being one of the most difficult off-road courses in one of the most remote places in the world. The Game captures the essence of the real-life Finke Desert Race and adds some spice to it. Unlike the real-life competition where there are restrictions such as age limits, FDRG can be played by your 7-year-old daughter to your 90-year-old grandfather. The Finke Desert Race is at the Palm of your hands, it’s time for an adventure and a test of skill.
