Standalone beta 1 pictured above. It contained only the pencil tool with 'blue' lines.

Line Rider Beta 1 was released by Boštjan Čadež (also known as "fsk"), a Slovenian student. Originally appearing on DeviantArt on September 23, 2006, Line Rider quickly became an internet phenomenon.[1] As fsk stated "Its not a game, its a toy. What I mean is there are no goals to achive and there is no score."[1] The basic concept is to draw one or more lines with the mouse on which a boy (referred to as "Bosh" by the creator[2]) on a sled can ride after the player presses the "Play" button.

History After Beta 1Edit

On December 5, 2006, beta 2 was released, then, in August 2007, Beta 2 Revision 6.2 was released.[3][4] This was fsk's last release of Line Rider. On December 20, 2006 inXile Entertainment announced that is acquired console rights to Line Rider.[5]
