What is Synth Rider
Synth Riders is an action-rhythm VR game that offers a unique combination of dancing and enjoyable physical workout that not only can help the players burn some calories, but also reduce stress and improve their mood. The game features 33 songs in a range of genres, official support for custom songs (also on the Oculus Quest), and cross-platform Multiplayer.
The developer has also created “Synth Sundays” workout classes for people to workout virtually during this Corona Virus quarantine. Players will be able to meet Carize and HeyFalcon, pro Twitch streamers and trainers, who will lead training sessions via open rooms in the multiplayer mode of the game.
The classes will begin this Sunday, April 5th at 1PM PST and take place every week.
