About the Game:

This is a small Bitsy game recording my 2018-19 completion of the Rapha Festive 500. 

The Rapha Festive 500 is a Strava challenge to ride 500km in the 8 days between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day.

About Me:

Normally I am a narrative designer and writer for games, I also speak at events (Indiecade, V&A, Gamecity, A MAZE, etc.) about activism in art, narrative design and writing, and I have a PhD in games against capitalism. You can find me on Twitter at @hannahnicklin, or my website at

A lovely short experience that offered insight into this short time period in the developers life.
